NEW YORK (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa set a franchise record by winning his seventh consecutive start and the Colorado Rockies beat New York 4-2 on Thursday night, earning a split in the day-night doubleheader and snapping the mets' five-game winning streak.
The Mets won the opener 7-0 behind Johan Santana, who struck out eight in seven sharp innings. Angel Berroa had a two-run double in New York's five-run second and David Wright also drove in two runs.
Clint Barmes hit a tiebreaking two-run homer and De La Rosa pitched 6 1-3 solid innings for the Rockies, who avoided a four-game series sweep with the victory in the makeup of Wednesday night's rainout.
