Reds try to avoid sweep
Reds lineup vs. Mets
*The Reds are trying to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Mets for the first time since July 18-21, 1997 at Shea Stadium. The Mets have never swept a four-game series in Cincinnati.
*The last time the Reds were handed a four-game sweep by anybody was Sept. 6-10 of last season Colorado. (Remember the steal of home for a loss?)
