Mets: Lance Johnson had a first-inning double to boost his major-league-leading hits total to 227.

Reds: Hal Morris went 2-for-5 to end the season on a 29-game hitting streak, the longest in the majors this year. The streak is the second longest in team history, trailing only Pete Rose's 44-game run in 1978. Cincinnati finished a perfect 75-0 when leading after eight innings.

Dodgers: Completed their fourth straight season without having a left-handed pitcher start a game. It's been a big league-record 591 games since a left-hander started a game for Los Angeles -- Bob Ojeda opened against Cincinnati on Sept. 24, 1992.
