MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

The Reds beat the Mets 7-2 on Tuesday night. In his third start of the season, Jason Vargas once again was very disapointing, lasting just four innings and giving up four runs. The Mets’ offense on the night came from a Wilmer Flores home run and an Adrian Gonzalez bases loaded walk which forced in a run. The Mets will play the rubber game of the series this afternoon with Zack Wheeler taking the mound.
