Morning Briefing: Ghost In the Big Red Machine

Good morning, Mets fans! Tonight, the New York Mets will take on Cincinnati Reds at 7:10 p.m. The probable starters will be Rafael Montero and Homer Bailey.

Yesterday, Chris Flexen started and was hit hard in the first. Scott Schebler hit a grand slam off him and there wasn’t much offense from the Mets to counter the Reds. Dominic Smith got a couple hits including a two-run single. Hopefully that is the start of something good to jump start the young first baseman.
