Starting Pitching Matchup – Reynolds vs. Dickey
This will be just the second start since 2008 for Reynolds.  He held the Pirates to two runs and three hits on Saturday night.  Reynolds is in the rotation because of the injury to Ubaldo Jimenez. Reynolds is 0-1 in his career against the Mets with a 4.85 ERA. The Mets go with R.A. Dickey who is 1-1 on the season with a 2.45 ERA.  This will be the first-ever start for Dickey against the Rockies.

Rockies Hot Start
Colorado is winning both at home and on the road.  Last season the Rockies were great at home but struggled on the road.  They have made it a point of emphasis this season to win on the road.  So far the Rockies have done quite well on the road. They won three of four in Pittsburgh and they took the first game of this series against the Mets.  And keep in mind that the Rockies are doing all of it without their ace pitcher Jimenez.
