Simon, Parra brilliant in win
I’ve got a plane to St. Louis to catch so this is going to be brief. It was a nice 2-1 win for the Reds over the Mets as it salvaged the three game series with a victory and also chased the bad taste left over from Saturday’s heartbreaker.
Alfredo Simon had 79 pitches over seven innings and Manny Parra notched a six-out save.
Items of note:
*For Simon, it was his longest outing since a career-high eight innings in a start for the Orioles on 9/23/11 at Det.
*The save was Parra’s first of his professional career.
*Brayan Pena notched his first stolen base since 7/21/10 for KC vs Toronto.
