The Mets have now lost four consecutive home games, scoring only nine runs in the process.
Chris Young (1-1, 3.06 ERA) got the start for the Mets in the loss. He went seven innings, allowing nine hits three runs (two earned) and two walks while striking out just two batters. Johnny Cueto (8-3, 2.38 ERA) got the victory for the Reds. He went seven innings, allowing six hits, one walk and one earned run. Cueto also struck out eight batters.
