FIRST FOR METS
Jose Reyes and Ruben Gotay opened the game with consecutive home runs, the first time that's happened in the Mets' 46-season history, and New York beat Cincinnati 3-2 on Thursday night. Reyes' drive was his ninth career leadoff homer, a franchise record.

YANKS BREAK EVEN
Alex Rodriguez hit his major league-leading 31st home run to help the New York Yankees (43-43) climb back to .500 for the first time since June 23 with a 7-3 win over Tampa Bay on Thursday night. Rodriguez's blast came as part of a three-run fourth inning that also included home runs by Derek Jeter and Bobby Abreu. The Devil Rays have lost 14 of 15.

COMEBACK DENIED
Baltimore trailed the Chicago White Sox 9-2 before scoring five runs in the ninth inning Thursday night. After Corey Patterson hit an RBI single and Luis Hernandez got his first major league hit, a run-scoring double, Kevin Millar hit a three-run homer off Boone Logan. Aubrey Huff followed with a single before White Sox closer Bobby Jenks got the final out for his 24th save to preserve the 9-7 win.

WACKY PLAY
run from first base. Detroit manager Jim Leyland ordered an appeal play to second base and Beltre was called out for never touching the bag.

SPEAKING
It's kind of a team-wide funk right now, besides Stew. Hopefully we'll break out of it. It just takes one game.'' - Oakland second baseman Mark Ellis on the slumping Athletics' 6-2 loss to Minnesota on Thursday night.

SEASONS
July 13
1934 - Babe Ruth hit his 700th home run in a 4-2 victory over Tommy Bridges and the Detroit Tigers. Lou Gehrig left in the first with a severe case of lumbago, the most serious threat to his streak. He returned for one at bat the next day.
1943 - The first night game in All-Star history, at Philadelphia's Shibe Park, went to the AL, 5-3, despite a single, triple and home run by NL center fielder Vince DiMaggio of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The big blow was a three-run homer by Bobby Doerr of the Boston Red Sox, which gave the AL the lead for good.
1954 - Pitcher Dean Stone did not retire a batter but received credit for the AL's 11-9 All-Star victory at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium. Red Schoendienst tried to steal a run for the NL after Stone was summoned in the eighth inning, but the pitcher's throw to the plate nailed the runner for the third out.
1963 - Early Wynn, at 43, registered his 300th and last victory, pitching the first five innings of Cleveland's 7-4 triumph over the Kansas City A's.
1965 - The NL took the lead over the AL for the first time since the All-Star series began, winning 6-5 at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minn.
1971 - Reggie Jackson's mammoth home run off the power generator on the right-field roof at Tiger Stadium highlighted a barrage of six homers - three by each team - as the AL beat the NL 6-4 in the All-Star game.
1982 - The NL registered its 11th consecutive All-Star victory over the AL with a 4-1 victory at Montreal's Olympic Stadium, the first All-Star game played outside the United States. Dave Concepcion's two-run homer off Dennis Eckersley in the second inning was the deciding hit.
1993 - Minnesota's Kirby Puckett homered and doubled to win the MVP award in the AL's 9-3 victory in the All-Star game at Camden Yards in Baltimore.
1999 - Boston's Pedro Martinez pitched himself into the All-Star game record book, becoming the first to strike out the first four hitters in an All-Star game, fanning Barry Larkin, Larry Walker and Sammy Sosa in the first inning, and Mark McGwire to start the second. Martinez struck out five in the first two innings - tying an American League record - to lead the AL to a 4-1 victory over the National League.
Today's birthdays: Yadier Molina, 25; Kei Igawa, 28.
