Rafael Montero pitched 5+ shutout innings to earn his first Major League win, as the Mets defeated the Rockies 2-0. Eric Young, Jr. had three hits and Dilson Herrera walked and scored twice to provide all the offense the Mets needed. Jenrry Mejia pitched the ninth to pick up his 25th save.


Rafael Montero found pitching in the majors easier the third time around.

The rookie right-hander earned his first career win, Eric Young Jr. went 3 for 3 with an RBI triple and the suddenly surging New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 2-0 Wednesday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

Montero (1-3) returned from the minors and allowed three hits over 5 1/3 innings in his seventh big league start. This is his third stint with New York this season.

“Thank God that it happened,” Montero said through a translator. “If I can continue to pitch the way I pitched tonight, hopefully more to come.”
