Final Score: Reds 3, Mets 0
Player of the Game: Chris Young- 5.2 IP, 8 H, 0 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, 105 pitches (65 strikes)
- Chris Young wasn’t particularly great. Sure, he kept the Reds scoreless, but they were so close to breaking the game open. He had trouble every inning. Despite allowing at least one baserunner in every inning, he didn’t allow the Reds to score.
- The same was true (although to a lesser degree) for the Mets against Mat Latos and the Cincinnati bullpen. They loaded the bases in the sixth and seventh innings, but still couldn’t come up with a single run. This is the third time in six games the Mets have been shut out.
