DENVER -- Marlon Byrd hits better when hes sweating and not shivering. He throws more accurately, too, especially since he can feel his fingers. Byrd hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning and threw out a runner from right field in the ninth to lead the New York Mets past the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Thursday in a makeup game for the one that was snowed out on April 17. Give him heat any day, whether its a fastball or the weather. Byrd didnt much care for his last trip to Denver, when the temperature was hovering around 28 degrees and the area was blanketed in snow. A 95-degree day with hardly a cloud in the sky? Now that was much more to his liking. "The cold has never been good for me," Byrd said. "This was nice. Had a real good day to play baseball. To come out with the win was even better." His bat gave the Mets the lead, and his arm protected it. With the Mets trailing 2-1 and a runner on, Byrd drove a fastball from reliever Matt Belisle (4-5) into the left-centre seats. One inning later, the right fielder threw out Michael Cuddyer when he tried to stretch a leadoff single into a double. "Thats that old-school Minnesota Twins baseball," Byrd said of Cuddyer, who began his career with the Twins. "Cuddyer knows how to play the game. He was trying to put pressure on the defence, which I know that he does. I came up and made a decent throw." Byrd practices throwing to the bases all the time. Its really a lost art around the majors, but Byrd makes a point to work on it, just in case of days like Thursday. "He made a good throw," Cuddyer said. "It took a perfect throw to get me and kudos to him, he made it." That was a downer on an otherwise big day for Cuddyer, who had three singles to extend his hitting streak to a franchise-record 24 games. Cuddyer entered the game tied with Dante Bichette before breaking the Rockies mark with a single to centre off Jeremy Hefner on a scorching afternoon. "Anytime you can put your name in any type of record book for a good thing is a good thing," Cuddyer said. "Id trade it for a win, though." The homer by Byrd was about the extent of the offence for New York with star slugger David Wright receiving a rare rest. Hefner drove in the teams other run on a groundout. "Without D-Wright in the lineup, you wonder if were going to score runs," Byrd said. "But we got enough today. Thats the big thing." LaTroy Hawkins (3-1) earned the win with a scoreless seventh and Bobby Parnell closed for his 14th save in 17 chances. The fourth-place Mets finished 7-4 on a four-city road trip that took them to three time zones. They have won eight of 12 overall. The weather was drastically different from the Mets trip to town in mid-April, when the temperatures were bitterly cold. The series opener was postponed, forcing a frosty doubleheader the next day. The game on April 17 was called off, too, leading to New Yorks quick detour to Denver on Thursday after a two-game series in Chicago with the White Sox. This time, the weather was more suitable for baseball. It was tied for the seventh-hottest home game in Rockies history. Colorado was cruising along until the eighth, when shortstop Jonathan Herrera and second baseman Josh Rutledge collided while trying to field Daniel Murphys single up the middle. Murphy stole second and Byrd followed with his 12th homer. It was yet another strong outing from Hefner. He went six innings, giving up two runs -- one earned -- and five hits. "My performances are finally matching up to the expectations," Hefner said. "This doesnt surprise me." Tyler Chatwood took a no-hit bid into the fifth before it was broken up by Zach Lutz, one of four hits the Mets managed off Chatwood. The righty threw a season-high 103 pitches, and his best may have been his last when he struck out Juan Lagares looking on a 92 mph fastball with the bases loaded in the sixth. Earlier in that inning, Chatwood took a line drive off his right leg. After a few warmup pitches, he remained in the game. New York loaded the bases with none out in the fifth, but Chatwood was able to work out of the sticky situation, giving up only one run on a fielders choice by Hefner. Left fielder Carlos Gonzalez ended the threat with a sliding catch in foul territory. "I really didnt have very good command at all today but I was able to keep our team in the game," Chatwood said. "I was happy with it." The Rockies scored twice in the second, when Cuddyer led off with a single and went to third on Wilin Rosarios double. Todd Helton hit a sacrifice fly, and Rosario later scored on a throwing error by first baseman Josh Satin. New York had two former Rockies batting 1-2 in the order in Eric Young Jr. and Omar Quintanilla. Young was acquired by the Mets last week from Colorado after he was designated for assignment. Young received a round of applause from the crowd in his first plate appearance. Hes long been a fan favourite, especially since his dad played in the Mile High City. "Im excited to get a chance to play back here so soon," Young said. NOTES: Mets manager Terry Collins said SS Ruben Tejada (strained quadriceps) might be ready to play in some Gulf Coast League games this weekend. Tejada could head to either Double-A or Triple-A on a rehab assignment after that. ... The Rockies signed INF Reid Brignac to a minor league deal. ...

The rookie head coach has watched his team earn points in seven of its last Major League Soccer games but with just one win over that span Vancouver has tumbled out of a Western Conference playoff position. While he hasnt had any complaints about the Whitecaps effort, Robinson will be looking for another gear when defending-champion Sporting Kansas City visits B.C. Place Stadium on Sunday. Watch the game on TSN starting at 8pm et/5pm pt. "I think thats a daily thing. I think youve always got to give more," said the Welshman. "The day you think that youve done it or you stop giving more will be in the day that youre in the wrong sport. Well continue to work hard, whatever the results." The Whitecaps rocketed out of the gate to start the season thanks to an attack-minded and free-flowing system that had them scoring plenty of goals. But for all the good vibes early on, the last two months have seen Vancouver (6-4-11) pick up just a single victory to go along with four straight ties, including an dreary 0-0 road draw against the Chicago Fire on July 30. "Were very close to turning those draws into wins, but also were very close to having them taken away from us and (turned) into losses," said Robinson. "Were not getting carried away, were not losing many games, but I want to win more games." The Whitecaps were tied for the fewest losses in MLS heading into the weekend, but their 11 draws include games they really shouldve won going away if even one of a number of golden opportunities had been converted. "Weve missed chances, and in football its all about taking your chances. Thats why the big guys are paid the big bucks, because theyre able to take those chances," said Robinson. "Weve got ourselves in good positions but we havent been able to take them. Well continue to work at it. "Hopefully we can maybe get one in off a backside that might help us get flowing again." The killer instinct Vancouver showed early in the season has dried up since the beginning of June with just six goals in the last eight games — including a 30-shot performance in a 2-2 draw against FC Dallas on July 27 — and is in direct correlation with the clubs current 1-2-6 run. "When weve had the other team by the neck and playing well and creating a lot of chances, we need to put the games away scoring those goals," said Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted. "Thhats whats going to kill the other teams.dddddddddddd "I feel like our offensive play has been brilliant at times and when were playing like that we definitely need to put the chances away so we capitalize on our good periods." At the other end of the pitch, the Whitecaps have struggled to keep the ball out of their net at times thanks in large part to mental lapses at key moments. "I think weve been giving up some goals here and there that are our fault," said defender Jordan Harvey. "Once we clean that up I think well get the three points because weve been creating a lot of chances at home and playing really well. "We are a little frustrated with all the ties." Kansas City (11-5-6) entered the weekend tops in the Eastern Conference and has not lost in MLS play since May 31, a stretch of eight games (6-0-2). Sporting had four players take part in Wednesdays MLS all-star game against German powerhouse Bayern Munich, including defenders Aurelien Collin and Matt Besler, midfielder Graham Zusi and striker Dom Dwyer, who has 14 goals this season. The Whitecaps, meanwhile, didnt have any of their players involved in the showcase game in Portland, Ore., which seemed to suit them just fine as they look to pick up three points for the first time since a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders on July 5. "Weve had a lot of draws, too many draws for my liking, and not enough wins," said Robinson. "It shows how close we are, but we just cant get over that line. Sundays a big game for us." Hes hopeful a good result in that big game will also give the Whitecaps the confidence moving forward as they look to climb back up the standings "Its a good test for this young group," Robinson said. "I think if we can give them a good game and show what were capable of — like we have most home games this year — were in with a chance. "If we do that do that hopefully we get better luck and get a victory." Notes: The Whitecaps bolstered their backline Friday by officially announcing the signing of defender Kendall Waston. The six-foot-five centre back joins Vancouver from Costa Rican club Deportivo Saprissa. ... Kansas City has won five straight road games, and a sixth Sunday would tie the club with the 2005 San Jose Earthquakes for most consecutive away wins in MLS history during the non-shootout era (2000-present). ... The Whitecaps next game is Aug. 16 at Chivas USA, while Kansas City hosts Toronto FC the same day.
