Luis Castillo ended Johnson's no-hit bid in the sixth with a broken-bat single. Castillo advanced on a sacrifice, but Reyes grounded out to end the threat.
With the score 2-0, David Wright singled with one out in the seventh and Bonifacio bobbled a potential double-play grounder for an error that put the tying run aboard. But Johnson overcame the mistake, turning a comebacker by Beltran into a 1-6-3 double play, then heading for the dugout with a pump of his fist.
The Mets put runners at the corners with two outs in the eighth, but Reyes grounded back to Johnson.
Notes: Marlins 1B Jorge Cantu, who had seven RBIs in the first five games, sat out after aggravating a bruise on his left hand. Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez said he expects Cantu back in the lineup for the team's next game Tuesday at Atlanta. ... The crowd of 18,104 included former Mets ace Dwight Gooden, who is also expected to be on hand Monday night for opening ceremonies at Citi Field.
