Steven Matz guts through six innings as Mets edge Rockies | Newsday

In years past — in months past, even — Steven Matz never would have been granted the chance to put together the kind of game he had Saturday night.

Working around a bunch of baserunners and never particularly efficient, he got through a gutsy six innings with three runs (two earned) allowed to lead the Mets to a 5-3 win over the Rockies at Citi Field.

Matz struck out a season-high 10 batters, and the final pitch of his career high-tying 120 was a huge one: a curveball up in the zone that induced a swing-and-miss from Rockies leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon, who was seeing Matz for a fourth time, to strand a pair of runners.

Don’t look now, Mets have a new best pitcher

Don’t look now but Matz’ 3.55 ERA is the best among Mets starting pitchers. Better than Jacob deGrom. Better than Noah Syndergaard. Better than Zack Wheeler.

“That’s the best Matz has ever pitched,’’ Mickey Callaway said. “He got the ball and threw the ball, not one ounce of emotion. You could tell he was locked in. He did what he had to do against a lineup like that. He’s been our most consistent starter.’’

Steven Matz fiasco just latest dud from Mets rotation

“One of those nights,” Callaway said, more than once.

“That,” Matz said glumly, “was just a poor effort tonight.”
