It Was A Boring Afternoon at Citi Field as the Mets Lost to the Reds 7-1


The star of the game was Reds rookie Max Schrock who hit 5 for 5 including a home run to lead his team to a 7-1 win over the listless Mets.  It was his first major league start at first base as he was giving All-Star Joey Votto a rest.  Javier Baez in his second game for the Mets was 0-4.  Reds starting pitcher Vladimir Gutierez allowed only 3 hits over 7 innings.  The only highlight for the Mets was a solo home run by Jeff McNeil.

The Mets are 8-9 since the All-Star break but are still leading the NL East by 3 1/2 games.  They are still the only team in the division over .500 with a record of 55-49.  There are 58 games to go in the regular season.
