Mets vs. Reds Post Game Recap 8/15
The Mets were unable to get much offense going for the second game straight losing to the Red 6-1.
Cincinnati Reds starter Mike Leake was great against the Mets throwing a complete game. Leake went the full nine innings allowing four hits, one run, and had four strikeouts.
Cy Young candidate R.A Dickey had one of his worst outings of the year getting his 4th loss of the season. Dickey went six innings allowing ten hits, two walks, five runs, and had nine strikeouts. Dickey did also give up three solo homeruns to Scott Rolen, Todd Frazier, and Jay Bruce. The start did come with some controversy, as the umpires made Dickey remove two bracelets that his daughters made him.
Mike Baxter was able to have a multi-hit game in the leadoff spot going 2 for 4 with a run scored.
Ruben Tejada was the other Met to get a hit off Leake, also having a multi-hit game going 2 for 4.
The Mets will be looking to avoid the sweep, as they send rookie Matt Harvey (1-3, 3.63) to the mound to face Homer Bailey (10-7, 4.08).
