Reds Recap: Mets take Game 1


There was not a whole lot of scoring in Friday night’s 2-1 loss to the New York Mets. Mets starter Noah Syndergaard was on point and the Cincinnati Reds’ offense was no match for the 97+ MPH fastball.

Game Summary:

Before we get into it, it must be noted that even though Reds’ starting pitcher Johnny Cueto gave up two runs, he only gave up two hits during the contest. The first of which was a lead off homerun by Curtis Granderson, 1-0 Mets.

The Reds answered back in the top of the second inning when Chris Dominguez grounded out to short, which chased in Jay Bruce from third base. That was the first and final run that the reds would score.

The Mets would play add on in the fifth inning. Dilson Herrera would hit a two-out triple to right field. Granderson would then walk and Eric Campbell would follow with a walk of his own. Now with bases loaded and two outs, Cueto would then walk Lucas Duda to give the Mets the go-ahead and ultimately the winning run.
