The Mets win seventh straight and sweep Tribe, 6-4

compiled from staff and wire reports

Jose Reyes and R.A. Dickey kept the Mets winning streak going on Thursday.

Reyes, playing with a big gash on his right hand due to being spiked during a first-round pickoff attempt, had three hits and Dickey won his fifth straight start as the Mets pushed their winning streak to seven games by beating the Cleveland Indians 6-4.

Reyes scored twice and rookie Ike Davis drove in two runs for the surging Mets, who have won 18 of 23 to go fom last place to a half-game behind NL East-leading Atlanta. They have six straight road wins for the first time since a six-game run in August of 2008, and have won a team-record eight in a row in interleague play.

The Mets are 8-1 against AL teams entering a three-game Subway Series at Yankee Stadium starting Friday night. They took two of three at home May 21-23 from the crosstown rivals.

The 5-and-0 Dickey tied a club record for a starter by winning his first five decisions. Bobby Ojeda (1986), Armando Reynoso (1997) and Kenny Rogers (1999) also accomplished it. Dickey is the only Met to be 5-0 in his first six starts.

The 35-year-old knuckleballer, called up May 19 from Triple-A Buffalo, allowed three runs, two earned, and seven hits over six innings. He struck out seven walked two and credited pitching coach Dan Warthen for suggesting he go with a hard knuckler.

Francisco Rodriguez struck out three in the ninth for his 15th save in 18 chances.

The Reds were facing Miami University alumnus, rookie John Ely of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 24-year-old went to Miami, located 35 minutes northwest up the road in Oxford, Ohio and he had numerous college coaches and friends in the stands, as he faced the Reds for the first time, he had the worst showing in his 10 major league starts so far.

Ely pitched 4-1-3 innings, giving up seven runs, eight hits and allowed three walks. The three homers matched the totaled he allowed in his nine previous starts combined.

Ely was very disgusted when he gave up Bronson Arroyo’s three-run shot in the second inning. It was Arroyo’s first homer in two years.

The Dodgers rookie gave up a two-run shot to Joey Votto and a solo blast to Brandon Phillips.

Arroyo (6-3) issued a career-high six walks and allowed five hits, but helped himself stay in the game longer with his defense. He was on the back end of three double plays covering first for the relay throws. Those double plays were the very rare 3-6-1 variety. All three ended LA rallies.

The Reds moved a half-game ahead of idle St. Louis in the NL Central. This is the latest that Cincinnati has been in first place since June 17, 2002, the final year of Cinergy Field.

The Reds went 4-6 on its longest homestand of 2010, but managed to stay tied or alone in first throughout because the St. Louis Cardinals struggled as well.

* John Ely singled home LA’s only run, his first career RBI.

* The Reds make their first West Coast trip of the season to Seattle and Oakland. They were 2-7 last year and are only 12-32 out there during the past four seasons.

compiled from staff and wire reports

Los Angeles Dodgers 6 Cincinnati Reds 2

You knew rookie Mike Leake was not going to win every game he pitched. After all, he is playing Major League Baseball.

Andre Eithier hit a home run, his first since breaking a finger and Clayton Kershaw outpitched Mike Leake, in leading the Dodgers over the slumping Reds in Cincinnati Wednesday night.

Kershaw (7-3) won a matchup of  talented and promising 22-year-old starting pitchers, giving up one run and seven hits in 71/3 innings.

The Dodgers are 25-6 against the Reds since 2006, a team they’ve beaten with ease. LA  has won the first two games of the series by a combined 18-2, shutting down the NL’s most prolific offense.

The Reds have been in first place in the NL Central for the last 10 days, the Reds have struggled to 3-6 on the current homestand which concludes on Thursday.

Both Scott Rolen and Reds manager Dusty Baker were ejected for arguing a strike three call in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt.

New York Mets 8  Cleveland Indians 4

Just as Mike Leake absorbed his first loss after starting the season in sensational fashion, Cleveland Indians rookie starter Mitch Talbot turned in the worst start of the season, allowing season highs in runs (eight) and hits (13). Talbot’s ERA jumped from 3.59 to 4.21. He and fellow rookie catcher Carlos Santana didn’t seem to be on the same page when pitches were being called for 5 2/3 innings.

Jonathon Niese (mlb)

The Mets used four straight doubles to take a 5-0 lead in the second inning. After Talbot retired Jeff Francoeur to start the inning, Reuben Tejada and Jose Reyes singled. Angel Pagan, David Wright, Ike Davis and Jason Bay followed with doubles to left or left-center field. They went on to beat the Indians in Cleveland.

Mets lefty Jonathon Niese was the winner, he’s 4-2.
