Recap:
Travis Ishikawa homered twice and knocked in a career-high five RBI as the Milwaukee Brewers hammered the New York Mets, 8-0, in the finale of a two-game series.

Rickie Weeks also went deep for the Brewers, who snapped a two-game slide.

Zack Greinke (4-1) struck out seven while allowing five hits and no walks through seven scoreless innings to earn the win.

Dillon Gee (2-3) was touched for seven runs on eight hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings in New York's third loss in five games.

After the Mets stranded a runner on second in the first inning, Milwaukee took the lead in the second when Aramis Ramirez led off the frame with a walk, advanced to third on Jonathan Lucroy's double and came home on an Ishikawa groundout to first.

Cesar Izturis then hit a single back up the middle to plate Lucroy and give the Brewers a 2-0 advantage.

Ishikawa led off the fifth inning with a blast over the right-field wall to increase Milwaukee's lead, and an RBI single by Lucroy followed by Ishikawa's three-run shot to center in the sixth made the score 7-0.

Weeks' solo homer in the seventh inning off D.J. Carrasco added to the rout. Carrasco then hit Ryan Braun in the shoulder with his next pitch and was immediately ejected from the game.

The bottom of the inning David Wright was taken out of the game for precautionary reasons as Terry Collins feared that the Brewers might retaliate by hitting him.

New York only threatened to score on Greinke one more time after the first inning, when Mike Baxter hit a one-out pinch-hit double in the sixth. But Andre Torres and Kirk Nieuwenhuis followed with back-to-back groundouts to end the inning.

Tim Dillard then pitched a perfect eighth before John Axford tossed a scoreless ninth to preserve the shutout for Milwaukee.

Game Notes

It was the first time in Ishikawa's career that he hit multiple home runs in a game...Milwaukee improved to 7-11 on the road this season, while New York fell to 11-7 at home...The Brewers have now won 57 straight games when taking a lead into the eighth inning...Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy went 1-for-2 to extend his hit streak to a career-high 11 games.
