The Cincinnati Reds have been up and down lately but their record says the down times have outnumbered the good times.

Cinci failed to get both their arms and bats on the same page with starter Homer Bailey falling to 4-8 with five runs given up on six hits and a trio of bases on balls over six frames. The Reds attack consisted of four hits and six walks with Scott Schrebler’s sacrifice fly scoring Scooter Gennett.

The New York Mets are looking for a strong finish to 2017 although it’s to late to impact the standings. The Mets are heading in that direction with Saturday night’s victory giving the team four consecutive wins with the pitching and hitting coming up big. New York starter Rafael Montero upped his record to 5-9 with the only run scoring on four hits and five free passes through five innings of work while four relievers put up zeros. The Mets logged nine hits and walked three times with Kevin Plawecki clubbing a two run homer while Norichika Aoki ripped a two run single.The New York Mets have scheduled Jacob deGrom for Sunday’s start versus the visiting Cincinnati Reds. DeGrom was defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 9-1 last time out with nine runs given up on ten hits and two bases on balls over 3.2 innings of work.
Cincinnati are 18-40 in their last 58 road games and Cincinnati are 23-51 in their last 74 Sunday games. New York are 2-9 in their last 11 Sunday games and the under is 7-1 in Montero’s last 8 home starts while New York are 2-6 in Montero’s last 8 home starts. Cincinnati are 1-10 in the last 11 meetings in New York and Cincinnati are 4-22 in the last 26 meetings.
DeGrom has a number of games where he seemingly had a big advantage to only get hit hard. I don’t think he has a huge edge here but I’ll give him and the Mets the nod…
