    PITTSBURGH ó Homer Bailey of the Cincinnati Reds threw the seasonís seventh no-hitter, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 1-0 on Friday night.

    The seven no-hitters matches the modern record for most in a season, tying 1990 and 1991. There were eight no-hitters in 1884.

    The last no-hitter for the Reds was a perfect game by Tom Browning on Sept. 16, 1988.

    Bailey (13-10) walked one and struck out 10. The last out was a popup by Alex Presley and when it was caught Bailey was mobbed near the mound.

    Mets 3, Braves 1

    ATLANTA ó Lucas Dudaís three-run homer in the seventh gave New York the lead, Jonathon Niese pitched seven strong innings for his third straight win and the Mets beat Tim Hudson and the Braves 3-1 on Friday night.

    The Braves, who have wrapped up at least a wild-card berth, began the night four games behind the Nationals in the NL East. Atlanta has only five games remaining.

    Chipper Jones, starting his final regular-season home series before retirement, was 0-for-4 with four groundouts. Jones was honored by the Braves in a pregame ceremony that included former Atlanta manager Bobby Cox.
