CINCINNATI (AP) Bartolo Colon pitched six innings of five-hit ball and Matt Reynolds homered to the lead the New York Mets to a 5-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.
Kelly Johnson also went deep as the Mets won for the sixth time in eight games. It was New York's 12th straight victory over Cincinnati.
Colon (13-7) improved to 4-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his last seven starts. The Reds put a runner on third with nobody out on two occasions, and Colon wiggled out of the jam each time.
