The Colorado Rockies swept the New York Mets in their own city to extend a winning streak out to five games. And they did it without getting overwhelming contributions from their best position players.

The backend of the rotation (yes these ratings exclude the top two pitchers in the Rockies rotation) were absolutely magnificent starting with the old man of the group. The young guys got it done too, as did the bullpen, and the scattered contributions from the offense proved to be just enough to deliver the sweep.

Interestingly, the Rockies would be looking at much different results if not for the production of the much-maligned Ian Desmond and Gerardo Parra.
