Mets-Rockies Score: Colorado Overcomes Scott Hairston Cycle To Down Mets, 18-9

The New York Mets entered Friday night's series opener with the Colorado Rockies pitching as well as they had all season. But the Mets can't feel so happy about their staff after allowing 11 runs in the fifth inning of an 18-9 defeat in Colorado Friday night.

Scott Hairston batted for the cycle for the Mets while adding 4 RBI, but they could not overcome Colorado's offensive onslaught.

Carlos Gonzalez had six RBI for the Rockies, Ramon Hernandez drilled his sixth career grand slam, and Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler also homered for the Rockies, who managed 19 hits while establishing a season high in runs scored. New York certainly didn't help its own cause with six errors, and reliever Manny Acosta allowed seven earned runs in one-third of an inning to draw the loss.

Matt Reynolds earned the win for Colorado with an inning of shutout work.
