The New York Mets (36-44) continue to have trouble stringing together wins and that was the case again Wednesday night at Citi Field as they fell to the Milwaukee Brewers (42-38), 5-2.

New York fell behind 2-0 and tied the game in the fourth but the bullpen blew the lead and the offense couldn’t generate enough as they went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

Tommy Pham put the Mets on the board with his eighth home run of the season and Francisco Alvarez worked a bases-loaded walk.

Kodai Senga allowed two runs over five innings of work while striking out eight. Grant Hartwig and Adam Ottavino surrendered runs in relief.

The Mets will try to avoid another series loss on Thursday at 7:10 p.m. with Max Scherzer toeing the rubber.

Mets owner Steve Cohen says Buck Showalter, Billy Eppler will keep their jobs through season
