Preview: Brewers at Mets

  Preview: Brewers at Mets Chase Anderson and Milwaukee look to end the winning streak of Matt Harvey and the MetsNEW YORK — Todd Frazier says the New York Mets won’t win every day, but the Milwaukee Brewers and the rest of baseball could be forgiven for wondering just if and when the Mets will finally lose again.

The Reds rejoined the winner's circle.

Riding an eight-game losing streak, Cincinnati went into Monday's game against the Brewers with little confidence and few positive results this season. But that all changed.

Cincinnati started quickly with three runs in the second inning, and then really poured things on with six runs in the sixth inning en route to a 10-4 victory.

Billy Hamilton led the Reds with two hits, two runs scored, three RBIs and a walk. Known as a base-stealing specialist, Hamilton has become more well-rounded during the last two seasons.

The Reds have some solid pieces with Joey Votto and Adam Duvall providing power and Hamilton and Jose Peraza adding speed. Raisel Iglesias has turned into an elite closer, but Cincinnati's rotation and depth issues will likely play a factor all season.
