why there be used "in" instead of "with" in following sentence?

there's a sentence in an English book, said:

Words are connected when a word ends in a consonant sound and the next word starts with a vowel sound,

there, "ends in" , I just wonder why use "in" instead of "with", and if I use "ends with", does it mean different?

however, please tell me the difference between "in" and "with" in such sentences.

    You could use "with" for both (although you can't use "in" with both!). "Ends in" is often used for expressions like, "ends in tears" or "ends in confusion," so people also use it in other sentences.
