Mets 11, Reds 7
This game was not as close as the score indicates. The bullpen meltdown was reminiscent of the those early season disasters. Relievers gave up six of the 11 runs, and the Reds have lost five straight.
Bill Bray added nearly two runs to his ERA. He did not retire a batter and gave up three runs.
Todd Coffey, freshly back from Louisville, faced four batters and retired none. He gave up Paul Lo Duca's second three-run homer of the night.
I've got to be back here in 10 hours and 46 minutes. So I'll heed Jack McKeon's advice and sleep fast.
