Jhoulys Chacin made an impressive return from an extended absence and the Colorado Rockies backed him with a pair of sharp defensive plays, beating the New York Mets 6-2 Tuesday night.

Chacin had not pitched in the majors since May 1 because of inflammation in his right shoulder. He came off the disabled list earlier in the day and held the Mets to one run and four hits in six innings, ending his seven-game losing streak that began last September.

Chris Young retired the first 15 Colorado batters, but his throwing error on a sacrifice bunt by Chacin helped the Rockies score four times in the sixth.

Center fielder Dexter Fowler made a sparkling catch and hit a pair of RBI singles as the Rockies won their third in a row. The Mets lost their third straight, giving away another run on a botched rundown.

Chacin (1-3) twice got help on balls hit hard by David Wright.
