A show of power helped take the edge off the Colorado Rockies‘ recent pitching problems.

Nolan Arenado [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/tarvarius-moore-jersey-cheap]Tarvarius Moore Jersey 49ers[/url] , Trevor Story and Ian Desmond homered in succession during a six-run third inning, German Marquez pitched effectively for six innings and Colorado snapped an eight-game home losing streak by beating the New York Mets 10-8 on Tuesday night.

Carlos Gonzalez also went deep for the Rockies, who won at home for the first time since May 29. Arenado finished a triple shy of the cycle with four RBIs in a game that was delayed 1 hour, 20 minutes because of heavy rain.

”I think that just kind of shows the resilience of our team,” Story said. ”We know things aren’t always going to go our way and we’re not going to win every time we score a lot of runs. That’s just how it is. But sometimes it’s kind of contagious. We’re just trying to hit the ball hard and few of them went out tonight.”

Marquez (5-7) allowed four runs on six hits in picking up his first win in nearly a month. He struck out four and walked two and helped himself with a pair of hits, scoring a run and driving in another to help build a big enough cushion to outlast the Mets. Colorado, which had lost eight of 10 coming into the game, had seen its bullpen go 0-7 collectively with two saves in seven chances this month.

”The greater majority of games over the last couple of weeks, we’re scoring enough runs,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. ”(Jacob) deGrom shut us down last night. But the offense is picking up, the averages are climbing. The situational hitting is better. We got 16 hits, a lot of contributions across the board, our pitcher included.”

Jason Vargas (2-6) allowed seven runs on nine hits in a season-low 2 1/3 innings and became the first Mets pitcher since Bartolo Colon in 2014 against the Los Angeles Angels to surrender homers to three batters in a row.

The game was tied at 2 when the Rockies went up with their big inning during which they sent 11 batters to the plate against two Mets pitchers.

Charlie Blackmon singled off Vargas to start the third and Arenado followed by homering into the left field bleachers. Story then drove a 1-0 offering from Vargas into the same general area before Desmond went the opposite way with a drive into the right field seats. It was the eighth time in franchise history that three Rockies hitters had gone deep in succession.

”They were just bad pitches and they all got hammered,” Vargas said.

After Vargas issued a one-out walk [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/lawrence-taylor-jersey]Lawrence Taylor Jersey Youth[/url] , Hansel Robles relieved and gave up run-scoring hits to Noel Cuevas and Marquez as Colorado pulled out to an 8-2 lead.

Gonzalez tacked on another run when he homered off Robles in the fourth and Arenado added an RBI single in the fifth.

”When you come to Coors Field, you tell your pitchers to not worry about what happens here and you move on,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. ”Forget about it.”

The Mets got an RBI single from pinch-hitter Jose Bautista and subsequently loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, adding a second run on a two-out passed ball to pull to within 10-6. But Adam Ottavino induced an inning-ending groundout and struck out the side in the eighth to help fend off the Mets.

The Mets added a pair of runs on RBI groundouts in the ninth before Wade Davis fanned Michael Conforto for the final out.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Mets: RHP AJ Ramos will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, the team announced. Ramos had a 6.41 ERA in 28 appearances this season. … OF Jay Bruce, who missed four of the previous five games because of right hip soreness, has been placed on the 10-day disabled list. ”He was really hurting,” manager Mickey Callaway said. ”So we made the decision to go ahead and put him on the DL so we can get him right so he can be the impactful player that he can be.” Callaway said Bruce was headed back to New York to be evaluated by team doctors and undergo an MRI. ”We’ll go from there, see what’s going on exactly.”

Rockies: RHP Scott Oberg threw a side session Tuesday for the first time since going on the 10-day DL earlier this month because of a back strain. Oberg is eligible for reinstatement Wednesday, though there’s no timetable yet for his return.

UP NEXT

Mets: RHP Seth Lugo (2-2, 2.49 ERA) has gone 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in his three starts this season.

Rockies: RHP Chad Bettis (5-1, 4.65 ERA) makes his 15th start of the season and the seventh at home, where he has no decisions in six previous outings.



Brian Daboll has far too much on his plate to have time to reflect on how the Buffalo Bills new offensive coordinator's career has brought him home.

There's a new series of plays to install, players to evaluate and [url=http://www.ravenscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-lamar-jackson-jersey]Cheap Lamar Jackson Jersey[/url] , most important, a new young hope at quarterback in first-round draft pick Josh Allen to groom.

So forget asking Daboll what it's like to be working with the team he grew up in suburban Buffalo rooting for, or being on a staff headed by Sean McDermott, the former safety whom Daboll coached at William and Mary in 1997.

"Just day by day," he said in addressing reporters at the Bills facility for the first time since being hired in January.

"You're really grinding on that particular day and trying to get focused, whether it's later on with the players or the next day, so you just kind of stay in the flow."

And on Thursday, Daboll's past was nowhere near the forefront of his attention.

"No. I've got my two-minute in my mind right now," he said, referring to having his offense run the two-minute drill in practice for the first time this spring.

The 43-year-old is entering his 18th NFL season and 22nd overall, including college.

It's a career in which Daboll has won five Super Bowl titles as an assistant during two separate stints with the New England Patriots. And he's coming off a season in which he oversaw a run-heavy Crimson Tide offense that helped Alabama win the national title.

The championship experience was re-affirming for Daboll in proving he can adapt the offense to a team's strengths while also gaining a better appreciation of dealing with younger players.

"The college game is a little different than the National Football League so I learned a lot there," he said. "You can't put as much on them."

It's a lesson that will certainly carry over to Buffalo, where Daboll takes over an offense essentially rebuilding from scratch, with the exception of veteran star running back LeSean McCoy.

Buffalo's undergoing yet another switch at quarterback after third-year starter Tyrod Taylor was traded to Cleveland in March.

There's a three-way competition for the starting job led by Allen [url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/barkevious-mingo-jersey-cheap]Barkevious Mingo Jersey Seahawks[/url] , the raw strong-armed rookie out of Wyoming who was selected with the seventh pick in the draft. It's rounded out by AJ McCarron, who spent his first four NFL seasons as Andy Dalton's backup in Cincinnati, and second-year player Nathan Peterman.

The offensive line is in transition after losing three starters. And the receiver position lacks established depth behind Kelvin Benjamin.

Benjamin said Daboll is putting the onus on the offensive veterans such as himself, McCoy and tight end Charles Clay to lead by example.

"He holds you accountable," Benjamin said. "I think they're giving the young guys a little bit more leeway. But us three, I think we really have to focus on it a little bit more and just knowing our position and even knowing other people's positions."

Daboll said it's premature to project who will fill out the starting jobs, and that particularly includes quarterback.

"All we're trying to take is one step at a time," he said. "It's so early in the process right now. I think that'll sort itself out as time goes on."

McCarron and Peterman are splitting time with the starters, while Allen, for now, is working with the third stringers.

Allen's inconsistencies were apparent during the two-minute drill.

He telegraphed his third pass, which was intercepted by cornerback Breon Borders. During his second chance, Allen completed five of seven attempts, including one dropped pass [url=http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/dak-prescott-jersey]Dak Prescott Jersey[/url] , and capped the drive by hitting Cam Phillips in the right corner of the end zone.

Daboll is Buffalo's fifth coordinator in five years. He replaced Rick Dennison who was fired after one season in which the Bills finished 29th in yards 鈥?mostly because of a popgun passing attack 鈥?and 22nd in points.

Daboll was actually born in Welland, Ontario, just across the river from Buffalo. But he quickly relocated to West Seneca, New York, where he was brought up by his maternal grandparents and developed a passion for football and the Bills.

"I know it's different being at home, being raised here. There's a lot of people, and I'm one of them, that love this team," Daboll said. "I'm just excited to be here."

NOTES: TE Logan Thomas will miss the final two weeks of spring practices after having surgery to repair a minor knee injury. ... The Bills have four voluntary practices next week, and then hold a three-day mandatory minicamp from June 12-14.
