Jay Bruce's three-run walk-off homer fells the Mets.

For nearly nine innings, the Cincinnati Reds and New York Mets had plenty of hits, but no runs to show for it.

Finally, in the bottom of the ninth inning, Reds outfielder Jay Bruce broke the scoreless tie with a walk-off homer to left field off of Mets reliever Josh Edgin, giving the Reds a 3-0 victory in the first game of a three game set against the Mets.

Mets starter Chris Young and Reds starter Mat Latos were both able to work around the hits they gave up to the opposing team, holding the game scoreless well into the night. Bullpens from both squads also stepped up as the zeroes started piling up.

Both teams threatened late, as the Reds got the bases loaded in the seventh and the Mets put runners on second and third with two outs in the top of the ninth, but neither team was able to capitalize in either situation.
