CINCINNATI (AP) - Todd Frazier and Chris Heisey homered, and Johnny Cueto went seven innings on Saturday, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 2-1 victory that ended the New York Mets' winning streak at three games.

Frazier's second homer in two days tied it in the sixth against Dillon Gee (6-7). Heisey pinch-hit for Cueto with two outs in the seventh and broke the 1-all tie with his eighth homer. It was Heisey's fourth pinch-hit homer of the season.

Aroldis Chapman relieved and got the last four outs for his 30th save in 32 chances, escaping a threat in the ninth with the help of a replay.

Curtis Granderson singled was replaced by Eric Young, Jr. Dilson Herrera walked. The runners pulled off what was initially ruled a double steal, but the replay showed Young took his foot off third base after he slid and was tagged out. Pinch-hitter Eric Campbell struck out to end it.
