NEW YORK (AP) -- Jay Bruce hit a tie breaking homer and drove in two runs to back Johnny Cueto's wild but effective return from the disabled list, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets 4-3 Monday night.

Brandon Phillips had a two-run single for his first career hit off Shaun Marcum in 13 at-bats. Phillips also made two sparkling plays in the field to help the Reds bounce back from a stunning 3-2 loss to the Phillies in which closer Aroldis Chapman gave up two home runs.

Chapman, the Reds' fifth reliever, struck out two - one on a 99 mph fastball - in a perfect ninth for his ninth save. He had blown his two previous save chances.
