NEW YORK (AP) - Willy Taveras got five of Colorado's season-high 20 hits, and the Rockies snapped out of an offensive drought Wednesday, with an 11-5 rout of the New York Mets.
Todd Helton had four hits and three RBIs, and John Mabry added a three-run homer.
The Rockies salvaged the victory after managing just one run in each of the first two games of the series against the Mets.
Jose Reyes had two doubles and two singles for New York. He would've had a fifth hit, too, but Taveras sprinted into the left-center field gap and caught Reyes' first-inning drive near the wall.
Josh Fogg improved to 1-1 while retiring the first nine New York batters, and contributing a pair of singles.
He scored twice as the Rockies roughed up the 0-2 Mike Pelfrey.
