Mets come up short in rubber game vs. Reds

Scooter Gennett’s ascension to the National League’s upper crust of infielders continued Thursday, when he hit his career-high 23rd home run off NL Cy Young candidate Jacob deGrom in the Reds’ 7-2 win over the Mets at Great American Ball Park.

Gennett cracked a two-run homer off deGrom in the second inning, then added an RBI double against deGrom in the fifth to finish 2-for-4. Joey Votto and Stuart Turner homered as well to back Reds starter Robert Stephenson, who completed six innings to submit his first quality start of the season.
