 NEW YORK (AP) -Jose Reyes and Ruben Gotay opened with consecutive home runs, the first time that happened in the Mets' 46-season history, and New York beat Cincinnati 3-2 on Thursday night.
Reyes led off the bottom of the first with his fifth homer and Gotay followed with his fourth, both against Bronson Arroyo (3-10). It was the third time this season the Mets hit back-to-back homers.
Orlando Hernandez (5-4) allowed three hits and two runs in six innings. He struck out seven and walked three.
Scott Hatteberg hit a two-run single in the second to tie it at 2.
Lastings Milledge, recalled from the minors earlier in the day, led off the New York fifth with a single. After two outs, Gotay's drive fell just in front of diving center fielder Ryan Freel. Milledge barely beat the play at home.
Billy Wagner got the last three outs for his 18th save.
