On a day in which the Mets held a joint press conference with their manager and general manager to announce the arrival of the next top pitching prospect to the majors, the last one to arrive, Noah Syndergaard, tossed a gem against the Reds at Citi Field in a 2-1 Mets win. The tall righty struck out five and walked none over eight innings, allowing just a second-inning RBI ground out to tarnish his effort. The Mets have now won two games in a row after dropping seven straight.

Curtis Granderson led off the game with a home run and is hitting .250/.349/.424 on the year, which is pretty, pretty, pretty good, all things considered. The Mets' other run scored in the fifth inning on a Dilson Herrera triple and consecutive walks to Curtis Granderson, Eric Campbell, and Lucas Duda, the last of which forced Herrera home.

Speaking of Herrera, he turned in this excellent defensive play as well:

In injury news, Ruben Tejada left the game in the top of the fifth with a bruised elbow, but x-rays were negative so he should be back on the field soon.
