Mets 4, Reds 3: Three Up, Three Down

Three Up
1. Lucas Duda: Two home runs as the new starter at first base. That’ll earn you props every time.

2. Jenrry Mejia: It may not have been the most efficient start in the world, but it got the job done. Good enough for a Mets team that badly needs consistency.

3. Anthony Recker: How about that throw to nail known speedster Billy Hamilton trying to steal second? Not bad, Recker.

Three Down
1. Travis d’Arnaud: Through four games, he’s given the Mets virtually nothing. A critical player for them, d’Arnaud must be better.

2. Ruben Tejada: Tejada is quietly batting just .231 himself. This is more of a cumulative “down” that anything he did particularly wrong Friday.

3. John Lannan: Very little has gone right for Lannan so far this season, making him one of the biggest culprits in a greater bullpen struggle.
