Mets Vs. Reds Final Score: New York Bullpen Coughs Up 6-3 Loss

The New York Mets watched the bullpen squander a two-run in a Wednesday night loss to the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds won by a final score of 6-3, handing the Mets their third loss in their last four games.

Reliever Jon Rauch was given the loss after surrendering three runs in the eighth inning, including a two-run shot from Reds' third baseman Todd Frazier, his second home run of the night. Rauch had a 2.93 ERA prior to this game. It was his second appearance, out of 18 total, in which he allowed three earned runs.

Johan Santana worked six and two-thirds innings for the Mets, striking out five and walking two. It was the second straight no-decision for Santana who has a 1-2 record to go with a 2.89 ERA to go with a 46/14 strike out-to-walk ratio in 43 innings and seven starts this season.

The Mets and the Reds go at it again on Thursday afternoon in the final game of a two-game set. R.A. Dickey will face off against Mat Latos.
