FINAL
Cincinnati 4
NY Mets 0

W: M. Leake (4-2)
L: J. Niese (3-5)
BOX SCORE

POSITIVES
–Great start by Mike Leake: seven shutout innings, allowing three hits. I’ll take that every time, thank you very much.

–Todd Frazier had two hits, including a double. Looks like Frazier may finally be emerging from his slump.

–Devin Mesoraco homered and walked, and his CatcherERA is fantastic after the shutout.

–Excellent relief work by Sam LeCure and Logan Ondrusek.

NEGATIVES
–None.

NOT-SO-RANDOM THOUGHTS
–That’s nine wins in eleven games for the mighty Redlegs. Even better, after that miserable start in road games, the Reds are now 12-12 away from home.

–Cincinnati has the highest run differential in the major leagues.

–How good has Cincinnati’s rotation been?
