The Mets continued their mastery over the Reds with a 7-2 win Thursday night in Citi Field.
So, which one was most surprising?
1. Matt Harvey going five innings and only allowing two earned runs to earn his first win since May.
2. Brandon Nimmo with three extra-base hits, including two homers.
3. Josh Smoker striking out the side in his only inning of work.
4. Jeurys Familia contributing two scoreless innings.
5. Travis Taijeron getting a pinch-hit single.
All excellent choices. And while not surprising enough to make the above list, Juan Lagares delivered a solo homer, too. Mets win back-to-back games for the first time in nearly a month. They haven’t won three games in a row since the third week in July.
