Mets Morning News: Mets rally to take down Reds

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

MLB: New York Mets at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

It wasn’t looking great for the Mets for the majority of the game. David Peterson struggled in his first start back from the paternity list and was pulled after giving up three runs to the Reds in less than four innings of work. After his exit the bullpen stopped the bleeding and kept the Mets in it until the ninth when they were finally able to tie the game. They then broke out in the tenth to finally pull ahead capped off by Brandon Nimmo’s three-run home run. Edwin Díaz made quick work of Cincinnati in the bottom of the inning and the Mets walked away with a series win.
