Mets take finale at Coors Field

DENVER (AP) - Mike Pelfrey pitched seven solid innings and hit an RBI single, helping the New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 5-0 on Thursday to avert a series sweep.

Pelfrey (2-0) allowed five hits, struck out six and walked none as the Mets ended a four-game skid. Only two of the Rockies' hits got out of the infield.

Pedro Feliciano and Francisco Rodriguez each pitched a hitless inning to finish New York's first shutout of the season.

Jorge De La Rosa (1-1), whose 17 wins since June 1 are the most in the majors, struggled with his control throughout his six-inning outing. He walked five and threw two wild pitches that figured in a pair of runs.
