DENVER (AP) - An inning after his throwing error let the New York Mets tie it, Chris Iannetta homered to lead off the 10th inning and give the Colorado Rockies a 6-5 win Wednesday night.
The Colorado catcher sent a pitch from Jenrry Mejia (0-1) into the centerfield bleachers to give the Rockies their third straight win and send the Mets to their fourth loss in a row.
Randy Flores (1-0) came on for Manny Corpas and retired Alex Cora with runners on second and third in the top of the 10th.
Jeff Francoeur and David Wright homered for the Mets.
In the ninth, Gary Matthews Jr. began with a single off closer Franklin Morales, stole second and took third when Iannetta's throw went into center. One out later, Luis Castillo scored Matthews with a sacrifice fly.
