The Reds got off to a great start in Queens when they scored four runs in the second inning. However, starting pitcher Tanner Roark was unable to hold that lead as walks burned him tonight. Jesse Winker hit a 415 foot blast in the top of the ninth off Mets closer Edwin Diaz to give the Reds a 5-4 lead. Raisel Iglesias finished off the Mets with two scoreless innings, including striking out the final four hitters.
