The Mets look to win the rubber game of their three-game set against the Reds and possibly expand their NL East lead.
The Mets‘ bats couldn’t fully come alive Tuesday like they did during Monday’s wild 15-11 win over the Reds. New York eventually lost the matchup 4-3 despite a first-inning solo homer from Pete Alonso.
New York will look to win the rubber game of the three-game set Wednesday afternoon with their NL East lead at just 2.5 games. Marcus Stroman takes the mound to conclude the post-All-Star break road trip.
