Coors Field, Denver, Colorado
• Summary: Todd Helton and Garrett Atkins both drove in a season-high five runs as the Rockies became the first team in more than a half-century to sweep two New York clubs in the same year, beating the Mets 17-7.
• Goats: The Mets' pitching was battered all night. Starter Orlando Hernandez tied a career worst with six walks in only four innings and allowed six runs, five earned, and six hits. Relievers Guillermo Mota, Pedro Feliciano and Scott Schoeneweis combined to allow the Rockies' other 11 runs in 2 2/3 innings.
• Figure this: The Rockies, whose 17 runs were a season high, also had 20 hits at Shea Stadium on April 25.
• Quotable: "Our lineup top to bottom is swinging the bat well right now. There's no break 1 through 8." -- Matt Holliday after reaching base in all six of his trips to the plate
