Who's hot: The Mets' Mike Piazza extended his hitting streak to 19 games, matching his career high, with a double in the second.

Who's not: After winning eight in a row to climb over .500 and get into contention, the Reds have lost most of their gains by dropping seven of nine.

On deck: Reds bench coach Ken Griffey Sr. will fill in today for manager Jack McKeon, who will miss one game to be with his wife. She is having surgery for breast cancer.
