Reds 4, Mets 0: Three Up, Three Down

“Boo,” the fans at Citi Field say to Ike Davis. “Boo.”

Three Up:
1. OF Lucas Duda: Duda was the only Mets player to reach base safely more than once, which says more about the rest of the team than it does about Duda.

2. LHP Scott Rice: This guy pitches every day, and he just continues to pitch well. More than a great story for Rice, it’s a boon for the bullpen.

3. C John Buck: He and Jon Niese made the necessary adjustments after a tough first inning, and Buck added what should have been an RBI double in the fourth. It wasn’t.

Three Down:
1. 3B David Wright: His error, plain and simple, lost the Mets the game. And it was an easily-preventable error, a ball right through his legs. Wright also finished 0-for-4 at the plate.

2. 1B Ike Davis: Another hitless game for Davis, including a groundout with two men in scoring position and two outs in the fourth. The boos at Citi Field are growing in intensity.

3. OF Rick Ankiel: So much for that little hitting streak. Ankiel finished 0-for-4 with — guess what? — a strikeout.
