Reed entered the game in relief of Bartolo Colon with the bases loaded and one out in the seventh inning, and allowed an RBI single to Michael Bourn and a two-run double to Freddie Freeman to erase a 2-0 lead.
"I went to a guy who was pitching brilliantly," manager Terry Collins said of Reed, who had not been charged with a run since joining the Mets, though he has two blown saves.
In a non-save situation in the ninth inning, Familia allowed a go-ahead three-run home run to Freeman, which turned a tie game into a 6-3 deficit. Familia started the ninth with a strikeout, but allowed an infield single and a walk to set up Freeman, who crushed his 0-1 splitter over the left-centerfield fence.
"His split has been outstanding," Collins said. "He left it up to Freddie. If the ball is down, he gets a double play or gets a groundball or gets a swing and miss. He left it up in the hitting area, and he did what good hitters do."
The Mets' bullpen, which allowed 11 runs in four innings on Sunday, recorded a 6.42 ERA over the team's nine-game homestand, during which the Mets went 3-6.

I'm concerned about Familia. I don't know if he has a dead arm or if he is out in front with his shoulder, but his pitches are flat and he appears to be over-throwing. The pitch to Freeman was a 93 mph meatball down the plate. They say it was his split, but it looked like a batting practice. In either case, it stayed up in the strikezone and Freeman teed off on it. Familia can get by with diminished velocity, but his location is way, way off. He has little command of his off-speed pitches and it's killing him the last few times he's gone out there. I don't know the answer. It could be mechanics. It could be that he actually needs to pitch more than he has. But, whatever it is, his slide is coming at a terrible time...
