New Balance 574 Sport Hombre .Reyes hit a leadoff home run, Noah Syndergaard lasted five shaky shutout innings and the Mets won their fifth in a row, beating the Cincinnati Reds 6-3 Wednesday.Were completely focused, manager Terry Collins said. We showed that when they scored three runs and we came right back with big hits. Were in our world right now.Reyes and Curtis Granderson each homered for the second straight day as the Mets beat Cincinnati for the 14th straight time. Wilmer Flores added a pinch-hit, two-run drive.The Mets (74-66) finished off a three-game sweep and have won eight of 10. They pulled within a percentage point of St. Louis (73-65) for the second NL wild card, both a half-game behind San Francisco (74-65).Reyes is trying to not get too caught up in this recent run.Theres still a lot of baseball left, he said. We have to take it one game at a time and win series. Thats what you have to do over the last (22) games.The Mets are one win short of tying the club record for consecutive wins against one team. They won 15 straight against Pittsburgh from June 6, 1986, to April 9, 1987, but theyll have to wait until next season before seeing the Reds again.Syndergaard (13-8) gave up six hits and four walks. But the Reds went 0 for 3 in trying to steal against him -- opposing runners had been previously been 45 for 51 this season.It was 87 degrees and humid at game time, and that mightve taken a toll on Syndergaard.It wasnt what we had been seeing, Collins said. His command wasnt there. I dont know if it was the weather, but when I took him out, I knew he was out of gas. He gave us five. Im glad we got him the win.Jeurys Familia closed for his 47th save, extending his franchise record.Anthony DeSclafani (8-3) took the loss as the Reds fell for the fourth straight time.Jose Peraza doubled twice, singled twice and drove in two runs for the Reds.

He struck out seven and improved to 4-1 with a 1.38 ERA over his last five starts.Reyes sent a shot into the right-field seats for his sixth homer. He later singled, stole a base and scored.I was trying to get ahead and Reyes was trying to hit one out and he did, DeSclafani said. Hes been swinging the bat well lately. They all have this whole series. They have a good lineup, and theyre playing pretty good.Granderson led off the sixth with his 25th home run.LEADOFF POPReyes home run to lead off the game was his 19th with the Mets, snapping a tie with Granderson for the franchise record. It was his third of the season and overall 24th of his career.PINCH POWERFloress homer was the first of his career as a pinch hitter and gave the Mets 12 this season, tying the franchise record set in 1983.TRAINERS ROOMMets: RF Jay Bruce got Wednesday off, as much a break from the strain of returning to his former home for the first time as anything else, Collins said. I told him yesterday, With all youve been through, why dont you catch your breath and get ready for Friday? Collins said.Reds: CF Billy Hamilton, who strained his left oblique on Sunday, wont travel with the team to Pittsburgh for the four-game series.UP NEXTMets: RHP Robert Gsellman (2-1) is scheduled to start Friday in Atlanta. He allowed one run on six hits over six innings of his first career start in a 3-1 win over Washington on Saturday.Reds: RHP Dan Straily (11-7) starts Thursday at Pittsburgh. He was able to overcome issuing a career-high seven walks in his last start, a 9-1 win over St. Louis. New Balance 1500 Hombre . PAUL, Minn.

Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. MINNEAPOLIS -- Nelson Cruz had a big homer in the fourth inning, but that was all the Seattle Mariners struggling offense could muster.Cruz tied Saturdays game against Minnesota at 2-all but the last-place Twins recovered for a 3-2 win Saturday night.Cruzs homer was estimated by MLBs Statcast as 493 feet, the second-longest home run in the majors this season behind a 504-foot strike by Miamis Giancarlo Stanton in Colorados Coors Field.Ive hit a few over there but they havent measured that far, Cruz said. You never know with Statcast, you never know how far its going to go until they say.Mariners manager Scott Servais was also impressed by Cruzs blast.Thats about as far as you can hit it in this park, Servais said. He absolutely killed it. Big hit at the time to give us a little momentum going forward, but then they quickly got it back with the Sano homer. I thought we had a chance there late, we just didnt get it done.Minnesotas Miguel Sano answered Cruz with a tiebreaking homer in the bottom of the fourth and Tyler Duffey pitched seven strong innings for his best start in more than a month to lead Minnesota.They hit a big homer there, Sano said. But I want the team win every day, and not a loss.Ariel Miranda (5-2) lost for the first time in five starts this month, lasting four innings and giving up three runs and three hits. Seattle fell 2 1/2 games behind Baltimore for the second AL wild card.Theyre all important, Servais said. Tonight was important, tomorrows important, the next ones important. Its just where we are in the season.The Mariners threatened in the ninth against Brandon Kintzler when RRobinson Cano singled and Cruz reached on an error by Sano. Air Max 2018 Elite Kpu. But Kyle Seagers hard grounder was snared by Sano, who stepped on third and threw to first for a double play. Adam Lind flied out to end the game and give Kintzler his 15th save in 18 chances.Seattle has struggled offensively even while winning 11 of its previous 15 games. The Mariners have scored two runs or fewer in six of their past eight games.We certainly need to score more than two runs, Servais said. Not a sharp night all around; just not a lot going on offensively. Obviously we had some chances late and didnt get the big hit.NO UNDEFEATED MONTH FOR MIRANDAMiranda was vying to become just the 14th rookie in major league history to go 5-0 in September. Acquired from the Baltimore Orioles for Wade Miley at trade deadline, Miranda had allowed a total of six earned runs in four September starts.My secondary pitches were not very good, Miranda said through an interpreter. When I had a chance to throw my breaking ball, it was not working. So thats when I threw my fastball and got hit. The fastball was a little bit up.UP NEXTMariners RHP Taijuan Walker (6-11, 4.32 ERA) starts against Twins LHP Hector Santiago (12-9, 4.82). Walker gave up five runs in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Twins earlier this season. Santiago was 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA in two starts against the Mariners this season with the Los Angeles Angels.
