Mets shut out by Brewers for second straight game

It was another ugly game for the New York Mets (3-3) as they were shut out by the Milwaukee Brewers (4-1) for the second straight day, this time by a score of 9-0.

Max Scherzer made his second start of the season and really struggled. The right-hander gave up back-to-back-back home runs for the first time in six years while allowing five runs, his highest regular-season run total as a Met.

The offense was a no-show again. New York had eight hits, but Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil combined for six of them. None of the hits were for extra bases.

Brooks Raley surrendered a season-high four runs out of the bullpen, while Denyi Reyes and Adam Ottavino had scoreless outings.

The Mets will send David Peterson to the hill on Wednesday as they look to avoid the three-game sweep. The first pitch is slated for 1:40 p.m.
