The Mets didn’t have much offense tonight with 7 hits and 2 walks. But they didn’t need much behind Santana. Jose Reyes was 2 for 4 with a run in his first game back from straining a muscle in his side. Jason Bay was 1 for 4 but had a big 2-RBI single in the sixth inning that was all the insurance the Mets would need tonight.
The Mets and Reds play the rubber game of the series tomorrow.
