(Colo.)-Byrd leads Mets to 3-2 win over Rockies

By: Andrew Lacy Posted at: 06/27/2013 07:35 PM
DENVER (AP) — Marlon Byrd hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning and threw out a runner from right field in the ninth to lead the New York Mets past the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Thursday in a makeup game for the one that was snowed out on April 17.

With the Mets trailing 2-1, Byrd drove a fastball from reliever Matt Belisle (4-5) into the seats in left-center. That was about the extent of the offense for New York with slugger David Wright receiving a rest. Starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner drove in the team's other run on a groundout.

LaTroy Hawkins (3-1) earned the win with a scoreless seventh and Bobby Parnell closed for his 14th save in 17 chances.

The fourth-place Mets finished 7-4 on a four-city road trip that took them to three time zones. They have won eight of 12 overall.
