The Cincinnati Reds and New York Mets meet Wednesday in MLB action.
The Cincinnati Reds rode an early lead to a 6-1 victory at the Mets on Tuesday. Cincinnati Sal Romano was at the top of his game with a run given up on two hits and three BB over six frames to get the win.

The Reds did their damage on ten hits and a walk with Dilson Herrara smacking a pinch hit homer while Phillip Ervin clubbed a three run bomb followed by Scooter Gennett who had three hits, an RBI and two runs.
I have seen Robert Stephenson pop up as the Reds starter on Tuesday but please check back.
The New York Mets struggled early on the mound Tuesday and the bats never found a groove. New York starter Jason Vargas was charged with three runs through 1.1 frames before Bobby Wahl gave up two runs.
The Mets offense consisted of four hits and three bases on balls with Jose Bautista driving in Brandon Nimmo who had two hits and a walk.
Jacob deGrom toes the rubber against visiting Cincinnati on Wednesday. DeGrom suffered a 2-1 loss to Atlanta last time out with both runs allowed on six hits over eight innings while striking out nine.
Cincinnati are 1-7 in their last 8 road games and over is 11-4 in Cincinnati last 15 road games and over is 25-12-2 in Cincinnati last 39 overall. NY Mets are 4-10 in their last 14 Wednesday games and under is 7-3 in NY Mets last 10 Wednesday games and NY Mets are 11-25 in their last 36 home games. Cincinnati are 1-10 in the last 11 meetings in New York and are 7-25 in the last 32 meetings.
Stephenson has struggled in the majors while deGrom can’t buy support to save his life so take this with a grain of salt…
