NEW YORK (AP) — Jose Iglesias homered off Edwin Diaz in the ninth inning to give the Cincinnati Reds a 1-0 victory over the New York Mets on Wednesday night.

Mets ace Jacob deGrom rediscovered his Cy Young form, throwing seven shutout innings of three-hit ball after losing his previous three starts. But as was often the case last season, his teammates didn’t provide much support.

It was the second time in three nights that Diaz (0-2) gave up a tiebreaking homer to the Reds in the ninth. Jesse Winker connected against the All-Star closer in the series opener Monday to give Cincinnati a 5-4 victory.

This time, the diminutive Iglesias pulled an 89 mph slider into the left field corner with two outs for his second home run this year and 23rd overall in eight major league seasons. A frustrated Diaz snapped his head and yelled on the mound after the ball cleared the fence.

Zach Duke (2-1) got one out for the win. Michael Lorenzen worked a perfect ninth for his second save, as heavily used closer Raisel Iglesias was rested.

Winker made a sliding catch in foul territory on Brandon Nimmo’s fly to left for the final out. Winker waved bye-bye to Mets fans seated nearby as he got up and trotted off.

Cincinnati right-hander Anthony DeSclafani, from nearby New Jersey, struck out eight in 5 2/3 sharp innings. He has permitted only one run in 17 2/3 innings over his last three starts.

On a misty night with a game-time temperature of 50 degrees, the Mets fell back to .500 at 15-15.
