Flushing, NY (WIBX) – Jose Reyes led off the bottom of the 1st inning in the Mets season finale with a bunt single, then was taken out of the game to a standing ovation at Citi Field.

Reyes says he chose to leave the game after getting the hit. Why? Likely because he holds a narrow lead over Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun for the National League batting title. Including today’s bunt single, Reyes ends the year with a .337 batting average.

According to ESPN, Braun will need to have three hits in no more than four at-bats to overcome the Met shortshop and win the batting crown.

The Mets went on to beat the Cincinnati Reds this afternoon by a final of 3-0, finishing the 2012 campaign with a record of 77-85.

Reyes, who will be a highly sought free-agent this offseason and may have played his last game with the Mets, would become the first player in franchise history to win the National League batting title.
