The Mets were defeated by the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 today at Citi Field.
Why the Mets lost:
The Mets couldn’t muster up enough offense against Reds starter Homer Bailey. Bailey allowed just six hits over eight innings of work.
Why the Red won:
The Reds struck early in the first, with Jay Bruce Hitting a three-run home run that ended up being the difference in the game. Otherwise, Niese pitched very wall, allowing only three hits and one run in the rest of his outing.
- The only run the Mets scored tonight came from a first inning RBI double by David Wright. This offense has been so inconsistent lately. This was not what I was hoping for after that promising Tampa Bay series.
- The offense missed a golden opportunity to get back in the game early during the second inning when they had first and third with no outs. Quintanilla popped out, Niese laid down an awful bunt, and Kirk Nieuwenhuis flied out to end the frame. Missed opportunities were huge in the early part of the game.

- The Mets take on the Reds tomorrow in a Father’s Day matchup between Chris Young and Johnny Cueto as the MEts try to salvage something out of this series.
