Mike Leake struck out four and set down nine of the last 10 New York batters he faced.
Flushing, NY (Sports Network) -
Mike Leake held New York's floundering offense to just three hits over seven innings of work, and the Cincinnati Reds shut out the Mets, 4-0, on Tuesday to take the second test of a three-game set.
The Reds managed only seven hits, but took advantage of a two-out error by Mets third baseman David Wright to score two of their three first-inning runs.
That's all the support Leake (4-2) needed to notch his third straight victory and fourth in five games. The righty struck out four and set down nine of the last 10 New York batters he faced.
