7,387: Mets score 5 in final two innings but fall short in 8-7 loss

The New York Mets rallied back with five runs in the eighth and ninth innings Sunday afternoon but fell one run short as the Texas Rangers topped the Mets 8-7 in the first game of a Fathers Day doubleheader.

After Ramon Castro hit a two out, two-RBI, pinch-hit single to cut the deficit to one, Damian Easley flied out to left to end the game.

John Maine lost his no-hit bid in the third inning when Rangers catcher Gerald Laird opened with a single to left to increase the NoNoHitters.com count to 7,387 games without a New York Mets no hitter.
