Votto's bat not enough vs. Mets

Quote:
CINCINNATI -- Joey Votto slugged a three-run homer in the first inning, but Carlos Delgado's four-RBI night helped send the Reds to a 9-7 loss vs. the Mets on Wednesday night at Great American Ball Park.
Reds starter Edinson Volquez was not sharp as he allowed five earned runs and six hits over 4 1/3 innings. Volquez (0-1) walked four and struck out four.

After David Wright drew a two-out walk from Volquez, Delgado crushed a 438-foot homer to right field for a 2-0 Mets lead. Cincinnati answered with four runs in the bottom of the first while sending nine to the plate.

With two on and no outs against Mets starter Mike Pelfrey (1-0), Votto lifted a 3-2 fastball over the wall in left-center field for a three-run homer. Shortstop Jose Reyes' throwing error turned what would have been a double play into a scoring opportunity for Brandon Phillips, which gave the Reds a 4-2 lead.

Volquez, who threw 107 pitches, labored into the fifth. After back-to-back singles, Alex Gonzalez's fielding error loaded the bases and Delgado drove in a run with a groundout to first base. Beltran's two-run single gave New York the go-ahead run.

The Mets added four runs in the seventh against Mike Lincoln and the Reds responded with two in the bottom of the inning, including an RBI single by Hernandez off of the right-field wall, and one in the eighth when pinch-hitter Willy Taveras tripled and scored.
