Despite a tremendous bounceback effort from Jacob deGrom, the Mets fell to the Reds 1-0. deGrom was perfect through three and didn’t allow a hit until the fifth, finishing the night with seven scoreless innings and six strikeouts. Ryan O’Rourke and Seth Lugo navigated a scoreless eighth to keep the game tied, but Edwin Diaz stumbled in a non-save situation again and allowed a solo home run to Jose Iglesias in the top of the ninth that proved to be the difference.

The Met offense, meanwhile, was essentially nonexistant. Jeff McNeil had a hit, as per usual, and Robinson Cano hit a double, easing some concerns about the health of his hand. The Mets’ best scoring chance came in the eighth when they put two men on with one out, but Wilson Ramos struck out and Dominc Smith grounded out to spoil the chance.

With the loss, the Mets’ record drops to 15-15. They’ll play one more against the Reds tomorrow with Noah Syndergaard on the mound.

Full recap to follow.
