Cincinnati Reds vs. New York Mets - 8/31/17 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Jeurys Familia, in his third appearance since returning from the disabled list, allowed a solo homer to Joey Votto in the seventh.

The Mets offense gave Montero some run support early in the game. The target seems well within reach. The boy, Walter Herbert, sat next to the dugout and wore a blue shirt with the words "Be Kind".

In a rare daytime misstep, the right-hander scuffled over six innings in the Mets' 7-2 loss to the Reds.

Scooter Gennett had himself an afternoon with a double, a home run and three RBI.

Votto declined to talk about his gesture after the game.

With five strikeouts on Thursday, deGrom brought his season total to 206, eclipsing his career high of 205 set in his All-Star season of 2015.

Already known for gifting donkeys to teammates and baseballs to the often-ignored upper decks (though sometimes he doesn't know his own strength), Votto made a young fan's day during the Reds' 7-2 victory over the Mets on Thursday. Arkansas has struggled the past couple of seasons stopping dual threat quarterbacks. That's possible, but it's hard to deny that part of the motivation for it was because Sabathia has a gimpy knee.

Jose Reyes scored both runs, one in the first and one in the third, but the bats were largely quiet. Going into the ninth inning, he had only surrendered one hit and three walks. He's been out since May 1 with a torn muscle in his back. "It shows what they got over there", Sabathia said. Mets RF Travis Taijeron logged his first career hit with a double into the left-field corner with one out in the fourth inning.

Although it wouldn't not be funny if he tried to throw the jersey and bat out of the stadium, this was clearly the best choice for everybody involved.

Nationals 4, Marlins 0: Stephen Strasburg tossed a complete game six-hitter and also homered, Wilmer Difo added a home run and Washington defeated Miami to complete a three-game sweep. Votto also gave Superbubz his game-worn jersey.
