The first three Reds get on against John Maine and the fourth hits a slam. Several innings later the Mets have the bases loaded with one out and Paul Lo Duca grounds into an inning-ending double play. Take your pick which was the bad and which was the ugly.
-We’ll see Oliver Perez Sunday against the Reds.
-Jorge Sosa is possible, but not likely for Monday in San Diego. If not Sosa then Mike Pelfrey.
-The Mets’ bullpen threw 21 straight scoreless innings before Mike Pelfrey gave up a run in the sixth.
-Ruben Gotay has a career-high eight-game hitting streak going.
