New York Mets vs Cincinnati Reds – July 5, 2022

The Cincinnati Reds (27-52) have lost five of six, but they are hoping that the return of Nick Lodolo to the Reds rotation can be a positive boost. It won't get any easier against the NL East leaders as the Mets have Max Scherzer on the mound tonight at 6:40 PM.

Offense, defense, umpire let down Luis Castillo in Reds loss

Luis Castillo gave the Reds six very strong innings, but his offense, defense and the home plate umpire let him down on this night. The Cardinals scored both of their runs in the first inning off Castillo, courtesy of a missed call that should have been strike 3 to end the inning, followed by two Reds errors.
