The Mets got swept in this pre-all-star-break doubleheader for their seventh loss in a row and they fell ten games out of first place.
Tony Perez drove in all five runs in game two, with the crusher being a three run eighth inning homer off Tom Seaver, who came in to relieve starter Jon Matlack. Jim McGlothlin had twelve strkieouts for the Reds.
