The Mets’ winning streak ended at 10 Friday night as the Cincinnati Reds tagged starter John Maine for five runs en route to a 5-2 victory.
Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with an RBI, but the Mets managed just two other hits in the game. The Reds, meanwhile, had just six hits, but it was enough for the victory as runs scored both on a walk and a hit batsman.
Maine lost the no hitter right off the bat as Jay Bruce led off the first inning with a single to left. It marked the 905th time during the Mets’ 46 1/2-year history that their pitcher has given up a leadoff hit.
