David Wright's second homer got the Mets on the board in the sixth and Rod Barajas added a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Jason Bay added an RBI single in the eighth.
The Rockies scored three times in the bottom half of the seventh against Fernando Nieve, who gave up one hit and walked three while recording just one out.
NOTES: Hawpe is day to day. He's the second Rockies OF to leave a game with an injury in three days. Carlos Gonzalez strained his left hamstring Sunday against San Diego. ... Free-agent slugger Carlos Delgado took a break from his rehab following hip surgery to visit his former Mets teammates before the game. ... Mets manager Jerry Manuel said labeling his team "unprepared" on Sunday was probably not the right choice of words. Manuel said he flustered because of his hitters' poor approach against grizzled Washington RHP Livan Hernandez, who threw seven scoreless innings against his old club.
