New York, in the midst of a deep funk, helped the Rockies out of potential trouble. Mike Baxter misjudged Tejada’s popped ball to center with one out in the second and was thrown out at second by Colvin, costing Tejada a single.

NOTES: Gold medal-winning American gymnast Gabby Douglas threw out a ceremonial first pitch. It was a high, arching pitch from the front of the mound that was caught to the first-base side of the plate by pitcher Robert Carson. Having not bounced the ball, Douglas raised both arms in triumph. … The Mets canceled the option of C Rob Johnson to Buffalo and put him on the 15-day DL, retroactive to Aug. 15, with a ligament tear in his left thumb. … Rockies CF Dexter Fowler was on crutches, his ankle wrapped, after spraining it Wednesday night. Manager Jim Tracy said he wasn’t available but the medical staff told him Fowler was day to day. … Mets 1B Ike Davis dropped Wright’s bounced throw from third on Wilin Rosario’s grounder leading off the second, but Davis picked up the ball with his bare hand in time for the out. … The Mets offered a kids-go-free if accompanied by adults promotion; the game drew 22,544, the 12th-lowest crowd ever at 4-year-old Citi Field. … The Rockies also won five in a row from May 28 to June 1.
