Having lost 15 of their last 16 at Shea, the Rox put an end to that, collecting 20 hits, including a career-high five from Willy Taveras. Leading the way were John Mabry, who belted a three-run homer, and Todd Helton and Matt Holliday, who each tallied three RBIs.
Getting his first look at the Rockies, young righty Mike Pelfrey did not fare too well, giving up six runs on eight hits in three innings. Meanwhile, the Mets, who got four hits from Jose Reyes, were kept scoreless until Shawn Green's three-run double in the sixth.
