Mets Take Rubber Game From Rockies

By  | 

Mike Pelfry carried a shutout into the sixth inning, Carlos Beltran hit a two-run homer and the New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 3-1 on Sunday to wrap up a winning road trip under interim manager Jerry Manuel.

He took over for the fired Willie Randolph after the Mets beat the Arizona Diamondbacks to open a six-game trip last Monday. New York lost in Manuel's debut on the bench, but rebounded to beat the Angels and take two of three from the Rockies.
