Mets Complete Four-Game Sweep Of Reds

The Mets completed a four-game sweep of the Reds, winning this afternoon by a score of 10-9.

  • Chris Capuano went 5.1 innings, giving up six runs on eight hits, while striking out four and walking three. Capuano gave up back-to-back doubles in the first inning, but soon settled down. He allowed one more run in the fourth, an RBI single from the pitcher Homer Bailey.
  • Lucas Duda came up big in the fourth inning with the bases loaded, driving in all three runs on a double to right field. When all was said and done, he was 2-4 at the plate.
  • Even Jason Bay had a big day at the plate, hitting a three-run double in the fifth inning. Bay finished the day going 3-4.
  • The Mets went into the sixth inning, winning 9-3. Then Manny Acosta entered the game. After coming in to relieve Capuano with one out, Acosta gave up a three-run homer to Miguel Cairo to make it 9-7. Of course, all but one of those runs was charged to Capuano. The perks of being a relief pitcher.
  • Jason Isringhausen recorded his fourth save of the season, and the 297 of his career.

Next up: The Mets head to Washington D.C. for a three-game series this weekend against the Nationals. Dillon Gee will get the start against Chien-Ming Wang Friday night. Game time is 7:05 p.m.
