NEW YORK (AP) - Eric Young made a diving catch to take a go-ahead hit away from Todd Helton in the fifth inning, then raced home with the tiebreaking run in the eighth, and the New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Tuesday night.
The Rockies have lost 12 of 18 since the All-Star break and have scored five runs in their last three games.
LaTroy Hawkins gave up a pair of two-out singles in the ninth before Ike Davis made a diving catch on Yorvit Torrealba's sinking liner foul down the first base line. It was Hawkins first save since May 6, 2012, for the Angels.
Scott Atchison (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
Eric Young led off the eighth with a single against Wilton Lopez (1-4). He was able to take second on Marlon Byrd's deep fly, putting him in position to make it home on Juan Lagares' infield single, a slow chopper to second base, that he just barely beat out.
