The Mets have actually been playing pretty good baseball all season, but came up short last night vs. the Reds. Offensively the Mets were led by Lucas Duda who had three hits. Johan Santana posted another strong outing and earned a no decision as he only let up two runs in 6+ innings of work. On Thursday the Mets will turn to RA Dickey in order to try and salvage a split of the two game series. Dickey has won two fo his last three decisions and has a 3.65 ERA in 44 innings of work this season.
The Reds have been playing well lately and continued that quality play on Wednesday night vs. the Mets. Todd Frazier led the Reds with two home runs as the Reds as a team scored 6 runs on 10 hits. Mat Latos will pitched tonight for the visitors who will be looking for a series sweep. Latos got off to a rough start, but has shown signs of turning it around since then. Overall he has a 4.54 ERA in 39 innings of work.
New York is 6-3 in their last nine home games, 7-4 in their last 11 games overall, and 2-8 in Dickey’s last eight starts against the N.L. Central. Cincinnati is 5-2 in their last seven games as a road favorite, 14-6 in their last 20 games against a right handed starter, and 0-4 in their last four game two of a series.
