NEW YORK, NY (FOX19) - The Reds struck out ten times in a 1-0 loss to the Mets to split the four-game series on Thursday.
Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard scored the only run of the game with a home run off Tyler Mahle and became the first pitcher to hit a home run and throw a complete game shutout in a 1-0 game since 1983.
Mahle (0-4, 4.09 ERA) struck out seven batters and gave up four hits over five innings. The Reds bullpen didn’t allow a single hit over three innings of work.
Jesse Winker, who went 0-4 with three strikeouts, was tossed from the game for arguing balls and strikes in the ninth inning. Reds manager David Bell was ejected for running out of the dugout to Winker’s defense. Bell has been ejected three times in 31 games.
The Reds (13-18) return home to face the San Francisco Giants on Friday at 7:10 p.m. with Sonny Gray (0-4, 3.64 ERA) on the mound at GABP.
