The New York Mets were blanked by the Milwaukee Brewers, 6-0, in the series finale on Wednesday afternoon at American Family Field. Despite the loss, New York won the series by taking two of three.
The Mets could not generate any offense as they had just four hits and went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position while leaving nine on base.
Taijuan Walker started on the mound and surrendered four runs on six hits over six innings. Drew Smith served up a grand slam in the seventh inning, but two of the runs were charged to Walker, and the other was charged to David Peterson.
Brandon Nimmo left the game in the first inning with left quad tightness. He told reporters after the game that he believes he caught his quad injury early enough to avoid a major issue and doesn’t expect to miss much time.
The Mets will get the day off on Thursday before they head to Oakland to begin a three-game series with the Athletics on Friday night.
