Plax 4 Prez Posted June 19, 2006 Share Posted June 19, 2006 Mets look to extend Reds' losing streak Cincinnati (37-32) at NY Mets (43-25) 7:10 pm EDT FLUSHING, New York (Ticker) -- The New York Mets attempt to add to the Cincinnati Reds' struggles when they host the opener of a four-game series on Monday. The Mets snapped a two-game skid with a 9-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the finale of an interleague series. Tom Glavine became the league's first 10-game winner and David Wright hit a grand slam. Looking to extend the Reds' losing streak to four, New York will turn to Cuban righthander Orlando Hernandez (4-5, 5.50 ERA), who was pounded in a game against Cincinnati this year while with Arizona. "El Duque" was tagged for eight runs, including three homers, in 5 2/3 innings of a 9-8 loss on May 7. Hernandez posted his second shortest outing of the year, but did not factor in the decision of a 9-3 triumph over Philadelphia on Wednesday. He yielded two runs and four hits while not issuing a walk in just three frames. The Reds have lost eight of their last nine games. They turn to their ace Bronson Arroyo (8-3, 2.51) on Monday. He dropped his previous decision, a 6-4 setback to Milwaukee on Tuesday which snapped a personal three-game streak. Despite striking out seven, Arroyo gave up four runs and nine hits in seven innings. The righthander has a whopping 7.71 ERA in two starts against New York. The Reds were swept in a three-game interleague series by the Chicago White Sox this past weekend. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
