CINCINNATI (AP) - Curtis Granderson and Anthony Recker homered, and the New York Mets scored four unearned runs in a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

Zach Wheeler (10-9) pitched six solid innings, improving to 7-1 with a 2.21 ERA over his last 13 starts. The right-hander allowed one run and five hits, struck out six and hit two batters.

The Reds began the day with a major league-low 62 errors. But center fielder Billy Hamilton dropped a fly ball in New York's three-run sixth, and first baseman Jack Hannahan flubbed Granderson's foul popup in the eighth. Granderson then hit a solo shot for his 18th homer.
