NEW YORK -- Terry Collins was watching another masterful pitching performance by shaggy-haired rookie Jacob deGrom when David Wright returned to the New York dugout with the news that his season was over because of a shoulder injury. Reshad Jones Jersey . The Mets manager had little time to think about the ramifications of losing his star third baseman, not with his team suddenly on the fringe of the National League playoff race. DeGrom pitched three-hit ball for eight dominant innings, and New York held on to beat the Colorado Rockies 2-0 on Tuesday night for its sixth win in seven games. "At the moment I was trying to win a baseball game," Collins said. "Theres a lot of discussions that are going to have to take place here to decide where we need to head." Jeurys Familia got Wilin Rosario to ground out with the bases loaded in the ninth for his fifth save, helping the Mets move five games under .500 (70-75). They are just 5 1-2 games behind Pittsburgh for the second NL wild card with three teams in front of them. "Just a really good team win right there," said All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy, who went 1 for 3 in his return from the disabled list. "A little bit of a sour taste in your mouth with whats going on with David." Wright has been playing with a sore shoulder since mid-June. The pain became more severe Monday night and he had an MRI Tuesday, missing the game. The seven-time All-Star will be shut down for the rest of the season and begin a six-week rehabilitation program after a period of rest. "Its disappointing," Wright said Tuesday night. "But I think for me personally, making sure I end this year as healthy as can be and then do what I can, starting with this rehab program, to ensure that I will be as close to 100 per cent for spring training is the goal." Juan Lagares had an RBI single, and Curtis Granderson added an RBI double off Christian Bergman (2-3) one night after he hit a tying triple in the ninth inning of the series-opening win. In his 20th career start, deGrom (8-6) didnt allow a baserunner after Nolan Arenados one-out double in the fourth -- retiring his final 14 batters. He struck out nine and walked none. "I felt like I was getting stronger as the game went on," deGrom said. "Thats a great feeling because its my first time Im pitching this late into a year." Over his last 10 starts, deGrom is 7-1 with a 1.60 ERA. He hasnt allowed an earned run in 22 straight innings. Matt den Dekkers double with one out in the fifth gave the Mets their first runner in scoring position against Bergman, and they came through. After deGrom grounded out, Lagares had an RBI single. Den Dekker was later hit by a pitch in the hand. X-Rays were negative. Bergman yielded six hits and two runs in six innings in his seventh major league start. He didnt walk a batter for his second consecutive outing. "Bergy did another nice job," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "Hes been one of those guys whove come up and been a bright spot for us -- he competes pretty well." TRAINERS ROOM Rockies: Weiss said OF Ben Paulsen has shown no ill effects from being hit in the elbow by a pitch on Sunday. UP NEXT Two pitchers who made their major league debuts this season will start the finale of this three-game series. Colorado LHP Tyler Matzek (5-9) is set to make his 17th start. Mets RHP Rafael Montero will be making his seventh career start. He is 0-3 with 4.71 ERA at Citi Field. MOVEEM IN Collins is a fan of general manager Sandy Aldersons idea to bring in the right field fence at Citi Field again. Collins said moving in the fence that is 375 feet from home plate would help players such as Lucas Duda, Wright and Granderson. "I think its going to help us a little bit, confidence-wise," Collins said. WHEELS WORKING A day after returning from a left hamstring strain, Michael Cuddyer made a spectacular diving catch on deGroms sinking liner in the third inning. The right fielder ran a long way before laying out to make the grab in right-centre. "That was a good sign," Weiss said. "He made a heck of a play on that and no issues." Mike Pouncey Jersey . Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers were left fretting over an MRI on the stars left knee. Paul George scored 21 points, Roy Hibbert added 19 and the Pacers used a dominant fourth quarter to blow out the Cavaliers 91-76 on Tuesday The Pacers (25-5) have won eight in a row over Cleveland, their longest active streak against any opponent. Ndamukong Suh Jersey . Al Harrington, another former Knicks forward, scored 22 of his 24 points after halftime for the Nuggets, allowing them to withstand Anthonys attempt to rally the Knicks after his poor shooting had them behind until the final minutes of regulation. Anthony finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, missing 20 of 30 shots in the Knicks sixth straight loss. http://www.dolphinsteamauthenticshop.com/c-25-dolphins-byron-maxwell-jersey.aspx .
