Game Post composed with file from Ted Sharp
On a hot and humid dog day evening at Christie Pits Diamond 3, the Mets defeated the Reds 12-4 in a heated four inning Mosquito Division soiree.
Here are the highlights:
- The Mets jumped out to a 12-0 lead and hung on to beat the Reds 12-4 with all the Red runs coming with two out in the last inning.
- Nigel (5) led the Mets offense with two run scoring doubles. Nigel also pitched a shut out inning. And to cap it off, Nigel also made aleaping bare-handed grab in centerfield to prevent an errant throw from scoring a bunch of runs.
- Matteo (13) and Rory (7) broke hitless slumps, Rory going two for two and Matteo going 1-1 with a double.
