The New York Mets fell to the Milwaukee Brewers, 10-2, on Wednesday night at Citi Field. The three-game series is now even at a game apiece.
David Peterson started on the mound for New York and surrendered four runs on six hits over four innings while walking two and striking out three. Jake Reed was the first one out of the bullpen, and he recorded just two outs and allowed five runs. Trevor Williams allowed one run over 2 1/3 innings, while Adam Ottavino and Joely Rodríguez had scoreless outings.
Jeff McNeil provided all of the Mets’ offense. He crushed his fourth home run of the season over the right-field wall in the fourth inning and ripped an RBI single to right in the sixth. Brandon Nimmo also had a multi-hit game.
New York finished 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position and left five on base.
Starling Marte left the game after getting hit in the area of his right hand with a 97-mph Corbin Burnes sinker. His X-Rays came back negative, and he is considered day-to-day.
The Mets will try to bounce back on Thursday night in the series finale. Tylor Megill is slated to start on the hill for New York.
