7,620: Pair of two-run homers off Redding lift Marlins over Mets

The Longballs killed us

Tim Redding held the Marlins hitless until the third inning, but Hanley Ramirez killed his no-no with a two-run homer Tuesday night as Florida topped the Mets 4-2 at Citi Field.

Redding had walked Chris Coughlin before giving up the dinger, which bumped our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,620 New York Mets games without a no-no.

Deja vu in the fourth, as Cameron Maybin tagged Redding for a homer into the apple to make it 4-0 Marlins. He left after pitching the fifth, yielding five hits and four walks over his start.

The Mets got their first run in fourth on a sacrifice fly by Josh Thole, his first Major League RBI. Angel Pagan hit a deep triple to center in the fourth inning, and Luis Castillo drove him in with an infield hit to make it 4-2.

Carlos Beltran, who returned to the lineup Tuesday night, hit a deep fly ball to the right-field warning track with the bases loaded in the seventh, but it fell just short of giving the Mets the lead.

At least Gary, Keith and Ron shook it up a bit with a 10-year-old announcer in the second inning and the “Silent Sixth,” in which the SNY team abandoned the booth in favor of ambient sounds.
