Because the less reactive metal has less reduction potential than the more reactive metal.

A single-displacement reaction, also named single-replacement reaction, is a type of oxidation-reduction chemical reaction when an element or ion moves out of one compound and into another - that is, one element is replaced by another in a compound. This is represented by the general reaction scheme:

A + B-C → A-C + B

This will most often occur if A is more reactive than B.
