CINCINNATI -- Shin-Soo Choo drove in the winning run with a single off the wall in the 10th inning, and the Cincinnati Reds secured a playoff spot Monday night moments after beating the New York Mets 3-2.

Second-place Cincinnati clinched at least an NL wild card when Washington lost to first-place St. Louis 4-3 just a few minutes after the Reds' game ended. Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said there would be no celebration of a wild-card clinching, not with a second straight NL Central title still in play.

David Aardsma pitched out of a bases-loaded threat in the ninth, retiring Todd Frazier on a flyout. Greg Burke (0-3) gave up a one-out single by Devin Mesoraco in the 10th, and Derrick Robinson singled him to third.
