Mets score seven homers, claim Reds fourth in a row


Another big explosion on Monday came in the eighth inning when batter James McCann broke a two-run homerun against relief pitcher Josh Osich, turning a Reds one-point lead into a 9-8 point deficit. .

It all turned out because the Reds received a bad start from Vladimir Gutierrez and another mess from the bullpen – seven innings, eight runs.

Gutierrez only lasted four innings and allowed six runs and nine hits and three of those hits left the stadium.

The Reds were leading 7-6 after four innings, until RJ Alaniz, called-class AAA Louisville before the game, gave up a homerun to Dominic Smith, the first hitter he faced.

He remained 7-7 until seventh when Jesse Winker’s brace gave the Reds an 8-7 lead.

The advance only survived for a few minutes, until Osich mistook the mound for eighth. Conforto hit a single and batter McCann scored for a 9-8 lead to the Mets.

Gutierrez started the game by awarding a straight home run to All-Star Home Run Derby champion Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeill.

Jerad Eickhoff was the 15th pitcher to start for the Mets this season because Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Carlos Carrasco are missing from the leaders of the National League East Division.

His 3-0 high from the first point guard disappeared low from the first when the Reds scored four times. Shortstop Guillorme missed a double play on the ground to open the door.

The Reds added three more in the second when the Mets made three mistakes, one by second baseman McNeill and two by Guillorme on the same play. He missed Tyler Stephenson’s ground ball and then got it. thrown past third base.

This gave the Reds a 7-3 lead, but Gutierrez ceded a two-run homerun in fourth to Conforto and a single to Alonso, reducing the lead to 7-6.

And the bullpen did its dirty work the rest of the way.

Closest to New York, Edwin Diaz, pitched the ninth and marched Farmer on four throws to open the inning. Tucker Barnhart struck out and India hit the mound, putting pinch runner Aristides Aquino in second with two strikeouts.

And Winker delivered again, a single scoring to tie him, 9-9. Winker took second on the home pitch, moved up to third on a wild pitch, but batter Michael Freeman struck out a full count to send him in extra innings.

The teams traded points in the 10th before the Mets landed in the 11th.

Tyler Naquin produced a career-high five hits, Jonathan India was on base six times (three hits, three walks), Winker had three hits, Joey Votto three hits and Kyle Farmer had two hits … All in a losing cause.
