In a game that began on Saturday afternoon, was suspended after seven innings, and resumed this afternoon only to carry on for another six innings, the Mets finally scratched together a run in the bottom of the thirteenth inning to beat the Reds, 2-1.
The Mets loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the thirteenth, and with five fielders on the infield Lucas Duda tapped a grounder to Joey Votto that scored Dilson Herrera from third.
Carlos Torres "started" the resumed game for the Mets in the seventh inning and recorded two outs but left with runners on second and third. Andres Torres came in and walked Joey Votto, then Hansel Robles relieved the second Torres and got Todd Frazier to pop out to catcher. Robles pitched a scoreless eighth, then Jeurys Familia and Logan Verrett pitched two scoreless innings apiece. Bobby Parnell pitched the thirteenth inning for the win.
The Mets had runners on base up and down this game but couldn't eke any of them across until Duda's game-winning tapper.
Todays' second game, Steven Matz's big league debut, will air on SNY at 4:36 PM.
