Taijuan Walker dominates the Reds lineup and boosts Mets' third straight win

Cincinnati — Mets needs an ace with two of the most famous pitchers on the injured list, and Taijuan Walker plays that role well. 

Simply put, the right-handed player was the power Mets received in the first half of last year to represent the team in an All-Star game in Colorado. His series of work suggests that he participates in repetitive conversations as a National League All-Star. 

Walker bent his muscles again on Monday night. With the exception of an early home run allowed, he manually processed the Reds lineup with a 7-4 win at Mets at the Great American Ball Park. The victory was three consecutive victories following the first three consecutive losses of the Mets season. 

With more than 6 innings, Walker has scored three earned runs with four hits in nine strikeouts and one walk. His ERA has risen to 2.86 and is ranked 9th in the NL. Walker threw at least 6 innings on each of his last 6 starts, and only once this season he allowed more than 4 earned runs on the start. With his last 11 starts, he owns the 2.53 ERA and carries Jacob DeGrom and Max Scherzer's luggage at IL. Scherzer will return on Tuesday night to make his first start since May 18th.

Mets (50-30) with the soaring Braves Before heading to Atlanta next week for the three-match series, we certainly welcome the backlash of this schedule against the Reds and Marlins. 

The fifth Francisco Lindor solohomer gave the Mets a 4-3 lead over Hunter Green. The explosion was Lindo's 13th season and was second only to Pete Alonso's 22 home runs at the Mets. Lindor took full advantage of the count before pulling a 100 mph fastball into the right fielder's seat. For Green, who needed 12 pitches to retire Brandon Nimmo's lead, it was like a fierce inning. 

In the second inning, Nimo's three-run homer gave Mets a 3-0 advantage. Mark Canha was hit on the pitch in the innings, and Tomas Nido became a single before Nimo jumped to the right-wing seat on the opening slider. Nimo's home run is the sixth in the season.

Mets extended his lead to 6th place in a two-run double with left-handed Rabel Saint Martin and Dominic Smith. Smith, who entered the night at .487 OPS against left-handers this season, has been punching Mets since he recently returned from the Triple A Syracuse stint. For the seventh time, Eduardo Escobar, who became homeless for the first time in four games, stroked the RBI single that sank the Reds in the 7-3 hole. 

Former Mets utilityman Brandon Drury continued the first half of the All-Star with a three-run home run in the third inning, drawing 3-3. Homer was the fourth allowed by Walker this season and the first since June 7th in San Diego. Walker in play was third in the major leagues (at least 70 innings pitcher) with a ratio of 0.35 home runs per 9 innings.
