The New York Mets fell to 0-2 on the season with a 7-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citi Field on Saturday afternoon.

New York trailed 3-0 early on and 7-2 in the eighth inning but fought back in the final two frames to make it a one-run game before falling short.

Francisco Alvarez went 3-for-4 at the plate with a home run and two RBI. Brett Baty crushed a pinch-hit three-run homer, while Pete Alonso also went deep.

Luis Severino made his Mets debut, and it did not go well. The right-hander gave up three first-inning runs and six over five innings. He also gave up 12 hits and struck out six.

Adam Ottavino gave up the seventh run while the rest of the bullpen had scoreless outings, including Edwin Díaz, who made his first appearance since October 9. Also, Yohan Ramirez was ejected for throwing behind Rhys Hoskins.

Box Score

The Mets will try to avoid the three-game sweep on Sunday at 1:40 p.m. Tylor Megill will take the ball.
