After Jacob deGrom's dominance in the afternoon, the Mets (6-3, 1st in NL East) will look to sweep a doubleheader sweep against the Colorado Rockies (3-11, 5th in NL West) on Saturday at Coors Field on SNY. Like the day-game, the nightcap is also a seven-inning affair.

Mets Notes

Michael Conforto snapped an 0-for-16 skid in game one, going 2-for-3 with two singles, while Pete Alonso (2-4, HR, 2 RBI), drove in two of the Mets' four runs in the afternoon. Francisco Lindor (1-3, RBI) drove in the game-winning run with a seventh inning single.

This is the Mets' second doubleheader this week (they swept the Phillies on Tuesday), and they already have four more scheduled.
