The New York Mets scored two runs in the ninth to defeated the Colorado Rockies on Monday by the score of 3-2. The win improved the Mets to 69-75 on the season, fourth in the National League East. On the injury front, Vic Black returned from the disabled list and entered the game in the eighth inning with the score tied at one.

Our own Rose Ingberman reported on August 28 that the Mets were considering putting Black on the disabled list with a neck injury.

As reported by Anthony DiComo of, Black was activated from the disabled list prior to the series opener against the Rockies. Black had been out since August 23 with a herniated disc in his neck, which required an epidural injection.

Although Black's velocity went down during his one-inning appearance on Monday, manager Terry Collins and trainer Ray Ramirez kept him in the game after being convinced by Black that he was fine.

Black, in his second Major League season, is 2-3 with a 2.41 ERA in 40 appearances. He's allowed 25 hits and walked 19 in 33 2/3 innings, while striking out 32. Black has a career record of 5-3 with a 2.84 ERA in 58 games.
