The New York Mets just completed a series with the Milwaukee Brewers in Milwaukee. The Mets lost two out of the three games. Here is a look at the series and how it went. What was good, what was bad and what happened.
The Mets won the first game by the score of 7-3, ending the Brewers streak of nine straight home wins. Jon Niese pitched well to get his 11th win of the season and the Mets bullpen did it’s job. The offense was led by Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda who each had two hits and two RBI.
In the second game of the series the Mets lost by the score of 9-6. It was an offensive game as Jenrry Mejia made the start for the Mets. It was his first start of the season and he did not pitch well at all. The Mets bullpen couldn’t hold down the Brewers offense either. Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy each had three hits and they produced three RBI to lead the Mets offense. The Mets actually had a 1-0 and 4-1 lead but each time gave it right back. In the first they gave up a run to tie it and then five runs in the fourth to trail 6-4 and then they never recovered.
In the third and final game of the series, the rubber match, the Brewers won by the score of 3-0. Chris Young started for the Mets and pitched well and the bullpen pitched well. The Mets offense only produced two hits. The Brewers had Wily Peralta start and he was brilliant and John Axford closed the game out. The Mets had no chance in this game as they were dominated by the Brewers pitching.
The New York Mets will head home to begin a series with the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night. They have been a much better team on the road but in this game it was like a lot of the home games they have played lately, they get behind and never recover and don’t show much life either.
