or duty.Illinois gives up 407.2 yards per game,

CINCINNATI -- Bartolo Colon got an early start on New Yorks trip to Cincinnati, and it paid off in a big way for the Mets. Alonzo Mourning Jersey .Colon pitched six innings of five-hit ball and Matt Reynolds homered to the lead the Mets to a 5-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.We had a man on the mound today, New York manager Terry Collins said. Nothing fazes him. Gave us what he always does, quality innings. Hes an amazing guy.Colon (13-7) improved to 4-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his last seven starts. The Reds put a runner on third with nobody out on two occasions, and Colon wiggled out of the jam each time.Kelly Johnson also went deep as the Mets won for the sixth time in eight games. It was New Yorks 12th straight victory over Cincinnati.The Mets remained one game back of St. Louis for the second NL wild card after the Cardinals won 12-6 at sliding Pittsburgh.New York had a short turnaround after a 5-1 victory over Washington on Sunday night, arriving in Cincinnati early Monday morning. Four regulars -- outfielders Curtis Granderson and Yoenis Cespedes and infielders Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabera -- were out of the starting lineup.But the 43-year-old Colon got plenty of rest after traveling to Cincy on Sunday.Never had any pressure at all. I knew a lot of the veterans were getting a day off today, Colon said through a translator. Getting ahead of the hitters was key for me.Jay Bruce went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in his first game in Cincinnati since the Reds traded him to the Mets on Aug. 1.It was a bit odd, coming over to the visiting side for the first time, Bruce said. Definitely odd being on the other side, but once the first pitch is thrown, its just baseball.Robert Stephenson, one of Cincinnatis top prospects, struck out nine in 5 1/3 innings. He allowed two runs and six hits, but fell short in his bid to become the first Cincinnati pitcher since Wayne Simpson in 1970 to win each of his first three major league starts.The 23-year-old Stephenson (2-1), who beat Philadelphia and Colorado in a pair of spot starts in April, said feels less pressure in the majors than he did in the minor leagues.Its just confidence, he said. Im not trying to get back to this level. Im already here. Now Im just trying to have fun.Reynolds, recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas before the game, hit his third homer of the season with one out in the third inning. He also had an RBI single in New Yorks three-run seventh and finished with three hits.Reynolds checked into the Mets Cincinnati hotel at 9:15 Monday morning after flying all night from Salt Lake City.Its everything I can ask for, Reynolds said. I just want to help the team win. It just happened I had a couple of big hits.Johnson led off the fifth with his 10th homer.The Mets have hit 18 home runs in their last 11 games at Great American Ball Park and 185 overall this season for their best total since the 2006 team set the franchise record with 200.GRACIOUS HOSTSThe Reds honored Bruce and his wife, Hannah, in a pregame ceremony for his contributions to the team on the field and the couples work in the community during his nearly nine seasons with Cincinnati.AMBITIOUSNew Yorks Wilmer Flores was thrown out by left fielder Adam Duvall trying to stretch hits in each of his first two at bats, at second in the first inning and at third in the fourth. Duvall is the first Cincinnati outfielder with two assists in one game since Bruce on Aug. 5, 2014, at Cleveland, according to the Reds.DOUBLE TROUBLEAfter tying their season high by hitting into four double plays in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis on Sunday, the Reds hit into double plays in each of the first two innings on Monday against the Mets.TRAINERS ROOMReds: 2B Brandon Phillips returned to the starting lineup after being scratched each of the previous two days with a sore left foot.UP NEXTMets RHP Rafael Montero (0-0) and Reds LHP Brandon Finnegan (8-10) are scheduled to start on Tuesday. Finnegan has limited opposing batters to a .132 average (9 for 68) over his last three starts. Wayne Ellington Jersey . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. Dwyane Wade Jersey . Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April. American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. . After a replay, the winner will meet Sunderland in the quarterfinals. Sagbo did well to control Sone Alukos right cross and fire past Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury. Style points arent in fashion at Wisconsin.The seventh-ranked Badgers will push opponents around with withering defense , and try to grind it out on the ground on offense. Theyre not necessarily going to stray from that successful formula just to make an impression on the College Football Playoff selection committee.Coach Paul Chryst is just fine with how his team looks, so long as it can close out the regular season with three straight wins, starting against Illinois on Saturday.I dont spend a lot of time trying to figure that out, Chryst said about blowout wins for other playoff contenders. If we can find a way to score one more point than our opponent each week, thats big. Thats the only guarantee to victory.In one sense, Chrysts club can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Wisconsin (7-2, 4-2 Big Ten, No. 7 CFP) emerged from its rigorous schedule -- five Top 10 opponents in nine games -- about as well as it could have hoped, other than going undefeated. The losses to Michigan and Ohio State were by a combined 14 points.Yet there are no signs of a letdown at Camp Randall Stadium.Doubted nearly every week this season, the Badgers can win the Big Ten West Division by winning their final three regular-season games. That would give Wisconsin a berth in the Big Ten title game, with the playoff potentially in reach.The Badgers should be favored in each of their last three games. After Illinois (3-6, 2-4) comes a trip to Purdue, followed by the rivalry game against Minnesota -- not that Wisconsin is peeking ahead.No, when we do that we lose focus on what we need to do. So just take care of one day at a time, one game at a time and then well see where we are at the end of this thing, tight end Troy Fumagalli said.Illinois has lost six straight to Wisconsin, last winning in 2007. But coach Lovie Smiths team is also brimming with confidence after ending another extended drought with a win over Michigan State last week. It was the Illinis first victory over the Spartans in a decade.I think you just get to the point where you keep pounding the rock, eventually you see a crack, Smith said. Now its about putting a big game together back-to-back.That will nott be easy in Madison on homecoming weekend. Chris Bosh Jersey. Here are a couple of reasons why, plus other notes ahead of Saturdays game:RED WALL: Wisconsin is third in the FBS in scoring defense (13.7 points per game) and 11th in total defense (302.8 yards), quite the achievement considering the Badgers have lost their starting inside linebackers to injuries for the season. Theyve also had key injuries at nose tackle and in the secondary. But coordinator Justin Wilcox keeps plugging in replacements, with little drop-off in performance.BY GEORGE: Injuries have led Illinois to play Jeff George Jr. at quarterback, and the third-stringer came through last week against the Spartans with a touchdown pass for the go-ahead score with 1:25 left. It was a confidence-building play for the redshirt sophomore, the son of the former NFL quarterback and Illinois great. But George will be severely tested by Wisconsins defense.GIVE AND TAKE: Illinois quarterbacks have combined to throw just three interceptions, which is tied for fewest in the Big Ten, in spite of the turnover at the position. The defense is also second in the league in fumble recoveries (nine).IN AND OUT: Wisconsin rotates two quarterbacks, with freshman starter Alex Hornibrook taking the majority of snaps. He has shown poise and accuracy, but will give way to senior Bart Houston at times. Houston is a rocket-armed passer with mobility. The system has had middling success, but Chryst is committed to having both passers ready for duty.Illinois gives up 407.2 yards per game, which is 11th in the 14-team Big Ten.BALL HOGS: Running back Corey Clement is averaging 121.5 yards his last four games, and 4.38 yards per carry over that span. Still, the running game has moved along at times in fits and starts. That could change against Illinois, which is giving up 191.9 yards per game on the ground.---AP freelancer Dennis Semrau in Madison, Wisconsin, contributed to this story.---More AP college football: Genaro Armas at: White NFL Jerseys Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL T-shirts From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
