Simon sharp as Reds beat Mets 2-1

Updated: Sunday, April 6 2014, 04:05 PM EDT

NEW YORK (AP) -- Alfredo Simon pitched seven impressive innings in his first start in more than two years and began the go-ahead rally with his second career hit, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets 2-1 Sunday to salvage a win in the three-game series.

Joey Votto had a sacrifice fly and Ryan Ludwick a tiebreaking single off Jonathon Niese (0-1), who was making his first start of the season after a being slowed by shoulder and elbow injuries this spring.

Simon (1-0) made 99 relief appearances for the Reds since his previous start, on Sept. 28, 2011, for Baltimore, but manager Bryan Price tapped the right-hander because Mat Latos is rehabbing from knee and elbow operations.

Manny Parra retired all six batters he faced for his first career save.
