Bartolo Colon struggles in Mets defeat

Friday, May 02, 2014 - Updated: 8:25 AM

DENVER (AP) -- Terry Collins was hoping for a solid pitching outing to help offset playing in hitter-friendly Coors Field.

"If ever you are going to pull your "A" game out, the next four days is when you need to do it," the New York Mets manager said before Thursday night's series opener against the Colorado Rockies. "Obviously, in this park, the way they are swinging, you have to really pitch well."

But Bartolo Colon (2-4) was not at his best on this night. He allowed seven runs on 10 hits in the Mets' 7-4 loss Thursday night to the Rockies. He went 4 2-3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. He walked one, hit a batter and struck out three.

"He did not have the usual command," Collins said. "His release point and command wasn't there tonight."

Colon said he had problems with his control.

"I had trouble locating pitches," Colon said.

Rockies slugger Carlos Gonzalez found one in a hurry, though. He homered before leaving with a finger injury, Juan Nicasio pitched seven scoreless innings and drove in three runs.
