Sam LeCure and Lyle Ondrusek each tossed a shutout frame to complete the Cincinnati's second consecutive win over the Mets and ninth in 11 games overall.

The Reds scored three unearned runs in the first as Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips each came home on David Wright's throwing error.

Devin Mesoraco added a solo homer for Cincinnati.

Mets starter Jonathon Niese (3-5) was tagged for just the three unearned tallies over six full frames. He walked three and fanned seven in the loss.
