Barajas Hits Go Ahead Home Run As Mets Slip Past Reds

Last updated on Wednesday, May 5, 2010

(CINCINNATI, OH) - Rod Barajas spoiled a Cincinnati comeback, hitting a solo home run in the top of the ninth to give the New York Mets a 5-4 win over the Reds.

The Mets scored two runs in the top of the sixth to take a 4-2 lead.

They held the lead until the bottom of the eighth when Joey Votto and Scott Rolen hit back-to-back solo homers off Fernando Nieve to tie the game at four.

That set up Barajas' two-out game-winner off Reds closer Francisco Cordero as New York snapped a three-game losing streak.
