    CINCINNATI -- One pitch into the game, the New York Mets once again were headed in the right direction. Wholesale Vans Authentic Shoes .Reyes hit a leadoff home run, Noah Syndergaard lasted five shaky shutout innings and the Mets won their fifth in a row, beating the Cincinnati Reds 6-3 Wednesday.Were completely focused, manager Terry Collins said. We showed that when they scored three runs and we came right back with big hits. Were in our world right now.Reyes and Curtis Granderson each homered for the second straight day as the Mets beat Cincinnati for the 14th straight time. Wilmer Flores added a pinch-hit, two-run drive.The Mets (74-66) finished off a three-game sweep and have won eight of 10. They pulled within a percentage point of St. Louis (73-65) for the second NL wild card, both a half-game behind San Francisco (74-65).Reyes is trying to not get too caught up in this recent run.Theres still a lot of baseball left, he said. We have to take it one game at a time and win series. Thats what you have to do over the last (22) games.The Mets are one win short of tying the club record for consecutive wins against one team. They won 15 straight against Pittsburgh from June 6, 1986, to April 9, 1987, but theyll have to wait until next season before seeing the Reds again.Syndergaard (13-8) gave up six hits and four walks. But the Reds went 0 for 3 in trying to steal against him -- opposing runners had been previously been 45 for 51 this season.It was 87 degrees and humid at game time, and that mightve taken a toll on Syndergaard.It wasnt what we had been seeing, Collins said. His command wasnt there. I dont know if it was the weather, but when I took him out, I knew he was out of gas. He gave us five. Im glad we got him the win.Jeurys Familia closed for his 47th save, extending his franchise record.Anthony DeSclafani (8-3) took the loss as the Reds fell for the fourth straight time.Jose Peraza doubled twice, singled twice and drove in two runs for the Reds. Cincinnati trailed 5-0 in the eighth before scoring three times, two on Perazas double off Addison Reed that barely missed being a tying grand slam.Cincinnati went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position against Syndergaard. He struck out seven and improved to 4-1 with a 1.38 ERA over his last five starts.Reyes sent a shot into the right-field seats for his sixth homer. He later singled, stole a base and scored.I was trying to get ahead and Reyes was trying to hit one out and he did, DeSclafani said. Hes been swinging the bat well lately. They all have this whole series. They have a good lineup, and theyre playing pretty good.Granderson led off the sixth with his 25th home run.LEADOFF POPReyes home run to lead off the game was his 19th with the Mets, snapping a tie with Granderson for the franchise record. It was his third of the season and overall 24th of his career.PINCH POWERFloress homer was the first of his career as a pinch hitter and gave the Mets 12 this season, tying the franchise record set in 1983.TRAINERS ROOMMets: RF Jay Bruce got Wednesday off, as much a break from the strain of returning to his former home for the first time as anything else, Collins said. I told him yesterday, With all youve been through, why dont you catch your breath and get ready for Friday? Collins said.Reds: CF Billy Hamilton, who strained his left oblique on Sunday, wont travel with the team to Pittsburgh for the four-game series.UP NEXTMets: RHP Robert Gsellman (2-1) is scheduled to start Friday in Atlanta. He allowed one run on six hits over six innings of his first career start in a 3-1 win over Washington on Saturday.Reds: RHP Dan Straily (11-7) starts Thursday at Pittsburgh. He was able to overcome issuing a career-high seven walks in his last start, a 9-1 win over St. Louis. China Vans Shoes Wholesale .

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings season began with an ambulance rushing to team headquarters to save the leg of their starting quarterback.A blockbuster trade followed to get another quarterback in town just ahead of the season opener in hopes of keeping a championship window open only to have the offensive line decimated by injuries, their star running back go down with a knee injury and their offensive coordinator to walk away midseason with the offense struggling to get going.And after all that, their head coach showed up to work this week with an eye patch after needing emergency eye surgery.Few teams have faced more adversity this season than the Vikings (6-6), and their play on the field has reflected the chaos.They started the season 5-0 thanks to an elite defense and Sam Bradfords smooth transition from Philadelphia to Minnesota.But they have lost six of their past seven games as they prepare to play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, and have gone from Super Bowl hopefuls to holding on to their playoff lives over the past month.As far as last year, things are a little bit different, like smooth sailing, good things happen, everybodys happy, receiver Stefon Diggs said, thinking back to an NFC North-championship winning season in 2015.This year, things are a little bumpy in a road. But just like a football game, when youre going in a football game, adversity is going to hit at one point. What youre going to do after that is going to determine the rest of the game.For an organization that is well-versed in drama and pratfall -- Adrian Petersons child abuse case two years ago, Brett Favres downfall in 2010, the Love Boat, etc., etc. -- this season ranks nowhere near the top of the list when it comes to misfortune. But it has had no shortage of adversity.-Teddy Bridgewater suffered a dislocated knee that, were it not for the fast action by the Vikings training staff and trauma medics who rushed to the scene, could have resulted in an amputation from a non-contact drill.-Peterson tore the meniscus in his right knee in Week 3, robbing the offense of its most potent and well-established playmaker.There remains a chance he will play before the season is over, but only if the Vikings playoff hopes remain alive.-The offensive line lost tackles Andre Smith, Matt Kalil, Jakee Long and Phil Loadholt and guard Mike Harris for the season with injuries. Cheap Vans Shoes For Sale. Center Joe Berger and right guard Brandon Fusco have also missed time and left guard Alex Boone has been playing through pain for weeks.All of the injuries have made an essential position group the biggest weakness on the team and the biggest reason the offense is ranked 31st in the league.-Norv Turner, coach Mike Zimmers right-hand man in charge of the offense, abruptly left the team in early November with the offense having trouble pulling its own weight.Pat Shurmer was elevated from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator, but the change has done little to spark a unit ranked 26th in the league in scoring.-Kicker Blair Walsh needed to be cut after leading the NFL in missed extra points, forcing the Vikings to scramble to add Kai Forbath in free agency.-Zimmer has needed multiple surgeries on his right eye to address a detached retina, which caused him to miss the game last week against the Cowboys.He wore an eye patch during practice on Tuesday and sunglasses on Wednesday and Thursday and will be coaching the team in Jacksonville on Sunday.We have to take advantage of the opportunities we have, said special teams coordinator Mike Priefer, who filled in as head coach for Zimmer last week.Coach Zimmer talked to the team this week about our backs being against the wall. Weve got to go get a win on Sunday and then hopefully the sky is the limit from there. But weve got to get this one first.The Vikings are operating under the assumption that they have to win their final four games to get into the playoffs, a stark difference from the team that was flying high after routing the Houston Texans in Week 5.The margin for error has disappeared, and now theyre hoping for a 4-0 finish to the season just like the one in 2012 that pushed them into the postseason after a 6-6 start.Youre so frustrated because it is things that were doing to ourselves, Boone said. At the same time you have to learn and really grow. This is the time where youre either going to take a step forward or take a step back.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals JerseysCheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates JerseysCheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
