-Reds 6 Mets 5: Jose Reyes recorded the first cycle in the majors this year, but Billy Wagner blew the save and the Mets lost. Wagner got the first two outs of the ninth, but then walked Austin Kearns and David Ross and gave up back-to-back singles to Rich Aurilia and Brandon Phillips. Carlos Beltran led off the bottom of the ninth with a walk, but Carlos Delgado flied out and David Wright grounded into a double play to end the game. The Mets finish their homestand tomorrow before heading to Toronto.
-Yankees 5 Phillies 0: Five Yankees’ pitchers combined to shut out Philadelphia and give the Yankees a big win.

Miguel Cairo went 2 for 3 with a triple and scored two runs. Melky Cabrera added two hits and made a nice catch in the ninth inning. The Yankees have tomorrow off before facing old friend, Joe Girardi and his Florida Marlins this weekend.
