Floyd, Timo Propel Mets Over Rockies 13-4

Cliff Floyd is scheduled to have surgery following Monday's game. He's making the most of the days he has left. The outfielder had three hits and knocked in four runs to help the New York Mets defeat the Colorado Rockies 13-4 on Saturday evening inside Shea Stadium.

Timo Perez drove home four runs, Jose Reyes chipped in with three hits, and Jae Seo (6-8) pitched five innings, allowing four runs, to earn the victory as the Mets won for the eighth time in their last eleven games.

They have also won a season-high four consecutive contests.

Colorado (61-64) took an early 1-0 advantage in the top of the first inning on Preston Wilson's RBI groundout, but Mike Piazza's single and Timo Perez's sacrifice fly handed the Mets a one run lead in the bottom half against Shawn Chacon.

New York (52-69) exploded for six runs in the second on four hits. Jose Reyes doubled, Cliff Floyd singled to drive home two, Jason Phillips added a base hit, and Timo Perez plated two more with a double to deep right center.

Jason Phillips -- who went 2-for-3 with 3 RBI -- had a run scoring double in the fourth and an RBI groundout in the seventh.

The Rockies added a run in the fourth on Larry Walker's eleventh homer of the year. Ron Belliard's triple and Todd Helton's double in the sixth accounted for their final runs.

Shawn Chacon -- 1-1 with a 4.26 ERA in three career starts against the Mets -- lasted just 1 1/3 innings, surrendering five hits and eight runs while walking five.
