Rockies Vs. Mets Final Score: Colorado Shuts Out New York, 1-0, To Complete Series Sweep

The Colorado Rockies completed a four-game sweep of the New York Mets on Thursday afternoon by picking up a 1-0 victory. Chris Nelson's RBI single in the eighth inning was all the difference in the game.

Tyler Colvin started the inning with a triple and didn't need to waste much more time on the bases before scoring. Nelson came through with a single to center field in the next at-bat to break the scoreless tie. Bobby Parnell, as a result, took the loss for the Mets. He relieved rookie Collin McHugh, who struck out nine and allowed just two hits in seven innings during his major league debut.

Tyler Chatwood started the game for the Rockies, but he pitched just three innings before Adam Ottavino relieved him. Rex Brothers picked up his eighth after pitching two innings. Will Harris followed and Matt Belisle closed out the game, picking up his first save of the year.

The Rockies (50-73, 24-34 away) play an afternoon game (12:20 p.m. MT) against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Friday.
