HR: MIL - A. Ramirez (7),J. Lucroy (5)   NYM - None

Recap:

Jonathan Lucroy's go-ahead two-run homer in the 13th inning helped lift the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-1 win over the New York Mets in the finale of a three-game set.

Rickie Weeks, Aramis Ramirez and Mark Reynolds each drove in a run for the Brewers, who have won four of their last five. Zach Duke (4-0) pitched a flawless 12th inning to get the win.

Bobby Abreu knocked in the only run of the game for the Mets, who have lost eight of their last nine games. Carlos Torres (2-4) suffered the loss for allowing four runs in the 13th.

Neither starter factored into the decision despite both pitching well. Kyle Lohse went eight innings for the Brewers and gave up just an unearned run on four hits, while Jon Niese allowed a run on six hits over 7 2/3 innings for the Mets.

Ryan Braun led off the 13th with a single and Lucroy gave the Brewers the lead with a homer just inside the left field foul pole. Reynolds later drove in a run with a single, and Weeks was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded for a 5-1 lead.

Francisco Rodriguez set the Mets down quietly in the home half of the 13th to wrap up the win.

Ramirez's home run in the second got the Brewers on the board, but the team left a runner on second in the fourth and fifth, and stranded a man on base in each of the next three innings as well.

The Mets tied the game in the fourth as Daniel Murphy led off with a single to center that saw him move to third as Carols Gomez misplayed the ball. Abreu followed with a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

There was a very brief rain delay in the top of the 11th as the umps waved the players off the field with one out, but a brief huddle between the umps and the grounds crew saw them quickly resume play.

In the bottom of the 11th, New York loaded the bases with one out, but Wilmer Flores hit a grounder to first that saw a force out at home, and Anthony Recker looked at strike three to end the inning. Recker argued the call as he thought the pitch was low, and was tossed from the game by umpire Angel Hernandez.

Milwaukee had two men on with one out in the 12th, but Scooter Gennett struck out as did Weeks to end the frame.

Game Notes

Niese has allowed three earned runs or less in 17 straight starts, the longest current streak in the majors ... Gomez went 2-for-6 and has reached base safely in 27 straight games, the longest current streak in the majors. Second on that list is New York's Curtis Granderson, who drew a pinch-hit intentional walk in the 11th inning to extend his run to 24 straight games ... Milwaukee welcomes Cincinnati to town for three games beginning Friday ... The Mets host the Padres for three games starting Friday.

Preview: Game 66
Milwaukee Brewers (39-27) at New York Mets (29-36)

Probable Pitchers:
Kyle Lohse (7-2) 3.27 ERA vs Jon Niese (3-3) 2.68 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - 710 AM - First Pitch 7:10 PM

Preview:

Kyle Lohse (7-2, 3.27 ERA) has been a key contributor to Milwaukee's surge to the top of the NL Central. After an off outing May 26 -- when he was reached for four runs in 6 2/3 innings -- he fired a three-hit shutout against the Chicago Cubs on June 1.

This time, the right-hander is coming off a disastrous showing Friday in Pittsburgh, where he was drilled for season worsts of eight runs and nine hits in five-plus innings of a 15-5 rout by the Pirates that ended his seven-game winning streak.

He hasn't beaten the Mets (29-36) since 2009, but also hasn't faced them since pitching for St. Louis in 2012. David Wright and Curtis Granderson have given Lohse fits, with Wright going 9 for 21 with two homers and Granderson 8 for 17 with a pair of home runs.

Lohse is 2-4 with a 5.40 ERA in 10 lifetime starts versus New York and is 0-2 with a 6.28 ERA in three starts at Citi Field.

Milwaukee (39-27) beat the Mets 3-1 on Thursday, their seventh loss in eight games. New York went 0 for 3 with runners in scoring position, dropping to 9 for 64 (.141) in such instances over this eight-game swoon.

That lack of clutch production doesn't bode well for Jonathon Niese (3-3, 2.68), who has no record in his last three starts despite giving up two runs in each game while totaling 20 2/3 innings. The Mets backed him with two runs in each outing, and the left-hander left Friday's start at San Francisco after giving up five hits in seven innings of New York's eventual 4-2 defeat.

Though Niese has a 5.68 ERA in five lifetime starts against the Brewers, he's been solid in the last three -- limiting them to five runs and 15 hits in 19 2/3 innings while winning twice. He did not get a decision in his only start versus Milwaukee in 2013, giving up two runs in six innings before New York rallied for a 3-2 win.

Jonathan Lucroy continued his hot June, going 3 for 5 with two doubles and an RBI. Batting a team-high .341 overall and .444 (16 for 36) this month, the Brewers catcher is also 5 for 11 lifetime versus Niese.

HR: MIL - None   NYM - None

Recap:

Wily Peralta retired nine of the last 10 batters he faced in 6 1/3 solid innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Mets 3-1 on Wednesday night.

Peralta (6-5) won his second straight start, giving up just one run on four hits and a walk while trimming his ERA from 3.03 to 2.90 for the season.

Jonathan Lucroy had three hits, including two doubles, and scored a run for the Brewers, who have won three of their last four.

Curtis Granderson reached base the first three times he was up on a walk, a single and a double for the Mets, who had won the opener of the three-game series 6-2 on Tuesday after losing the last six games of a brutal 11-game road trip.

Granderson scored New York's only run on Lucas Duda's sacrifice fly in the second inning.

Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom (0-3) remained winless in his first six MLB starts. The 25-year-old rookie gave up three runs on nine hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings.

New York manager Terry Collins was ejected by home plate umpire Gary Cederstrom in the fifth inning after challenging a bang-bang play at first base in which Taylor Teagarden was called out.

Collins came back out of the dugout to argue when the ruling on the field was upheld upon review. He said Cederstrom handled the situation "like he's supposed to" and didn't offer an explanation on the decision. (Plays are reviewed in MLB's offices in New York.)

"(Cederstrom) said, 'The play stands. I don't have anything else to tell you," recalled Collins. "I said, 'Well, I have something to say.'"

DeGrom pitched his way out if a bases-loaded jam in the first inning with back-to-back strikeouts of Aramis Ramirez and Kris Davis. The Mets then took a 1-0 lead in the second after Granderson walked, went first-to-third on Bobby Abreu's single and scored on Duda's sacrifice fly.

But Scooter Gennett led off the third inning with a double for Milwaukee, went to third base on a line out and scored on Lucroy's groundout to tie the score.

And the Brewers took a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning after Aramis Ramirez doubled, went to third base on Davis' single and scored on Jean Segura's hit.

They scraped together another run in the fifth after Ryan Braun drew a leadoff walk, advanced to third on Lucroy's double and scored on Carlos Gomez's single.

Braun was thrown out at home plate in the seventh inning trying to score from first base on Lucroy's double to the right-center field gap. Center fielder Matt den Dekker didn't field the ball cleanly but got the ball in fast and second baseman Daniel Murphy's relay throw was on target to nab Braun.

Peralta had thrown 57 of his 92 pitches for strikes when he was lifted for reliever Zach Duke with a runner on first base on the seventh inning. Duke got Duda on a pop up and Rob Wooten retired Teagarden on a fly ball to end the inning.

Will Smith pitched around a single in a scoreless eighth for Milwaukee and Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 ninth against his former team for his 20th save of the season.

Game Notes

Collins said he thinks the new replay system "has been good" but added about the Teagarden play, "I have seen closer plays than this one overturned. ... I'm not sure which cameras or angles they were looking at."

TV - SNY - Radio WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 7:10 PM

Preview:

New York (29-35) is among the worst offensive teams in the majors with a .234 average, .351 slugging percentage and 47 homers. The Mets are batting .228 over the past seven games but homered on two of their five hits while ending a six-game slide with Tuesday's 6-2 win over Milwaukee.

The victory in the opener of this three-game series came after general manager Sandy Alderson refuted reports that Collins' job was in danger.

The Mets are aiming for their first four-game home winning streak since Aug. 6-20, but they're batting .202 over their last three at Citi Field.

Taylor Teagarden may have done enough to earn another start behind the plate after hitting a grand slam in his Mets debut, hours after being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace demoted catcher Travis d'Arnaud.

Despite Teagarden's unexpected slam, the Mets will likely continue to rely on a staff that has compiled a 1.33 ERA over the past three home games.

Jacob deGrom owns a 1.83 ERA in three home starts, but he's still seeking his first win anywhere in the majors.

The rookie right-hander has allowed seven runs in 11 1/3 innings while not getting a decision over his last two starts -- both on the road. Each of his three previous outings came at Citi Field, and he'll be looking to rebound from his worst performance of the season.

DeGrom (0-2, 3.19 ERA) was tagged for four runs in five innings of Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs. He served up a two-run homer to opposing starter Travis Wood.

The Brewers (38-27) will counter with Wily Peralta (5-5, 3.03), who has struggled with his command while splitting his past two starts. The right-hander allowed 10 runs and three homers with five walks in 10 2/3 innings over those outings after he had a 2.12 ERA in his first 10 games.

Peralta's recent issues were on display during Thursday's 8-5 win at Minnesota. He yielded four runs with three walks while throwing 101 pitches in five innings, but was backed by six runs and got his first win in six starts.

Peralta had little trouble in his only meeting with the Mets on Sept. 16, 2012, allowing two hits in eight innings of a 3-0 victory.

Recap:

Taylor Teagarden homered in his Mets debut, Daniel Murphy had a two-run shot and New York beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 Tuesday night to snap a six-game skid.

Called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday to replace demoted catcher Travis d'Arnaud, Teagarden connected for his second career slam after Marco Estrada walked the bases loaded in the sixth inning.

The 30-year-old Teagarden had struck out in his first two at-bats. He said his teammates let him know just how poorly they've done with the bases loaded after he returned to the dugout.

Playing in front of a season-low Citi Field crowd of 20,206 that booed Ryan Braun in each of his four plate appearances, the Mets improved to 11 for 64 (.172) with the sacks full.

Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-0) pitched six effective innings and Murphy homered off Estrada in the third. Before the game, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Collins' job is secure after the team returned from a 4-7 road trip a season-worst seven games under .500.

Outhit 6-5, the Mets scored their most runs in 16 home games since a 7-6 loss in 10 innings to Miami on April 26.

Matsuzaka was hit high on the outside of his right thigh by a line drive in the sixth. Making his third start of the year, the right-hander recovered to throw out Carlos Gomez and finished the inning.

Collins said the plan was to send Matsuzaka out for the start of the seventh because he was at 100 pitches.

Estrada (5-3) has given up a major league-worst 20 homers this season, and both long balls Tuesday followed walks.

Murphy connected after Ruben Tejada walked with two outs in the third, the ball just clearing the right field wall for a 2-0 lead. Murphy, who spent his off day Monday participating in a White House summit on working families, has five homers.

The Brewers cut the lead in half in the fourth after Khris Davis was hit by a pitch from Matsuzaka. Running on a full-count pitch to Lyle Overbay, Davis scored from first when Overbay hit a sharp grounder inside first base for a run-scoring double.

Matsuzaka, however, kept the NL Central leaders in check. He allowed three hits and three walks, striking out five.

Estrada walked David Wright and Curtis Granderson with one out in the sixth. After Chris Young struck out, Lucas Duda walked to load the bases. Teagarden's drive hit off the top of the wall down the right field line and ricocheted into the seats for his first slam since 2008 with Texas.

Gomez, traded by the Mets to Minnesota as part of the deal that brought Johan Santana to New York in February 2008, had an RBI double in the eighth off Jeurys Familia.

Notes

Mets RHP Matt Harvey (Tommy John surgery) was scheduled to throw off a slope but that was pushed back. Alderson said Harvey is doing well. The schedule was changed because the team's doctors didn't want Harvey pitching too soon. ... Mets RHP Gonzalez Germen (virus and abscess) was activated from the 15-day DL after the game. LHP Scott Rice was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas. ... OF Eric Young Jr. (hamstring) has started running, but not at full speed. He has also been hitting. ... Brewers RHP Tyler Thornburg (elbow soreness) had an MRI. Manager Ron Roenicke said the team is waiting for a radiologist to examine the results before revealing anything. He did say it's not an injury that would require Tommy John surgery.

Preview:

RHP Marco Estrada looks to turn things around for the Brewers as he tries to send the host Mets to their longest losing streak in three years in the opener of a three-game series Tuesday night.

Yovani Gallardo ended his recent struggles with seven innings in Sunday's 1-0 victory at Pittsburgh. Now NL Central-leading Milwaukee (38-26) is looking for a similar performance from Estrada (5-2, 4.19 ERA) as it continues this eight-game trip.

The right-hander, however, has posted a 5.30 ERA in his last six starts after recording a 3.13 mark in his first six.

Estrada has surrendered the most home runs in baseball with 18 and has walked seven in his last two outings. He did not get a decision Wednesday when he allowed four runs over six innings of a 6-4 loss at Minnesota.

Milwaukee starters ranked seventh in the major leagues with a 3.05 ERA on May 1, but have a 4.89 mark over the last 13 games.

Estrada allowed one run and two hits over seven innings in his only career start at Citi Field on Sept. 29, when the bullpen blew his one-run lead in a 3-2 loss.

He'll face a New York team that dropped the final six on an 11-day, 11-game, three-city road trip, leaving it on the cusp of its worst losing streak since April 10-16, 2011.

The Mets (28-35) have batted .145 with runners in scoring position during the slide. Curtis Granderson hit two homers Sunday, but he's 0 for 14 with seven strikeouts in his last five home games.

David Wright has gone 1 for 19 in the past six games and is hitting .167 over his past 14 home contests against the Brewers.

The Mets haven't fared well at home against Milwaukee, averaging 2.8 runs and hitting .212 while dropping 10 of the last 12 meetings there.

Former New York outfielder Carlos Gomez ranks among the NL leaders in most offensive categories, including batting average (.307), home runs (12) and stolen bases (11). He's 8 for 15 with a homer in six career games at Citi Field.

Ryan Braun has hit .339 with 14 RBIs in his last 14 games overall and batting .417 with three homers and eight RBIs in his past 10 against New York.

They'll try to continue that production against Daisuke Matsuzaka (2-0, 3.21), who makes his third start of the season after giving up four runs and walking five over 4 1/3 innings of Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

In his only career start against Milwaukee in 2008, Matsuzaka gave up two runs -- none earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a 5-3 win with Boston. Gomez is hitless in seven career at-bats in the matchup.

HR: MIL - None   NYM - None

Recap:

Eric Young won the National League stolen base crown with 46 and helped the Mets rally past Milwaukee 3-2 on Sunday when the Brewers botched two bunts in the eighth inning.

The speedy Young swiped two bases in the first, scored on a shallow sacrifice fly and later threw out a runner at the plate from left field. He began the day tied for the NL lead in steals with Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura, who sat out for the 10th time in 11 games.

Young's father led the NL in stolen bases with 53 for the Rockies in 1996.

Playing in front of their third sellout this season, the injury-riddled Mets prevented a four-game sweep by Milwaukee and finished 74-88 for the second consecutive year. They have endured five straight losing seasons since moving into Citi Field.

Before the game, former slugger Mike Piazza was inducted into the team's Hall of Fame during a 30-minute ceremony on the field.

After the final out, Young applauded as Mets players tossed their caps into the stands behind the dugout.

Center fielder Juan Lagares also cut down a Milwaukee runner at the plate in the fourth to help starter Jonathon Niese escape further damage.

Marco Estrada allowed two hits in seven sharp innings for the Brewers, who finished 74-88 for fourth place in the NL Central. They had won four games in a row and 12 of 17.

Estrada struck out eight and walked none.

Milwaukee scored twice on five singles and a walk in the fourth, then carried a 2-1 lead into the eighth. Lagares reached on a throwing error by shortstop Jeff Bianchi, and Juan Centeno dropped down a bunt in front of home plate.

Second baseman Scooter Gennett was late covering first and bumped into umpire CB Bucknor while trying to navigate his way toward the bag. The low throw from catcher Jonathan Lucroy skipped up the right field line for an error that allowed Lagares to score all the way from first.

Wilfredo Tovar sacrificed and reached safely when first baseman Sean Halton made an ill-advised throw to third. Pinch-runner Matt den Dekker beat the play, putting runners at the corners.

One out later, Young drove in the go-ahead run with a dribbler to reliever Brandon Kintzler (3-3).

Vic Black (3-0) pitched a hitless inning for the win and Frank Francisco struck out two of three batters in the ninth for his first save since Sept. 1 last year.

The Brewers try to cap the season with a four-game sweep of the Mets on Sunday at Citi Field. The Mets will also celebrate Mike Piazza going into the Mets Hall of Fame.

Milwaukee (74-87) won Saturday 4-2 in 10 innings to pick up its 12th win in 17 games, a far departure from its 2-8 start to the season. Carlos Gomez snapped out of a 3-for-25 slump with four hits, including the go-ahead single.

The Mets (73-88) have lost three straight and will finish with a losing record for a fifth straight year, but Collins is close to an agreement to remain manager as the club attempts to build a winner.

Fielding an inexperienced lineup depleted by injuries and trades, Collins has kept the Mets competitive down the stretch without most of his top players.

One thing Collins has been unable to do is find a way to beat Milwaukee at Citi Field.

The Brewers have won 10 of 11 at the Mets' ballpark.

Recap:
Looks like he has to take a shit

The Ex Met - Carlos Gomez homered and had four hits, including a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning that sent Milwaukee past the New York Mets 4-2 on Saturday for its fourth straight victory. Gomez stole two bases in the second to give him 39 this season. The All-Star center fielder singled in the eighth before Betancourt's bases-loaded sacrifice fly gave the Brewers a 2-1 lead.

Yuniesky Betancourt drove in two runs for the Brewers (74-87), who have won six of seven and 12 of 17. Milwaukee has taken the first three in a four-game set at Citi Field -- all by the same score -- to give the club five victories in its final seven series.

Eric Young Jr. singled home the tying run for the Mets in the ninth on an 0-2 pitch from rookie Donovan Hand. David Wright had a chance to win it, but he grounded sharply into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded.

Pinch-hitter Caleb Gindl drew a four-pitch walk from Scott Atchison (3-3) to start the 10th and went to third on Jonathan Lucroy's broken-bat single. Gomez followed with a flare to right-center to put Milwaukee ahead. Betancourt added an RBI single.

Donovan Hand (1-5) initially tried for a six-out save and instead wound up with his first major league win. With the Brewers resting closer Jim Henderson, Alfredo Figaro got three straight outs for his first career save.

Captain David Wright went 0 for 5 and stranded six runners after sitting out Friday night with a sore right thumb. He grounded out ending the seventh, leaving three aboard after New York loaded the bases with no outs.

Young lined out to center field and Lucas Duda popped up before Wright came to bat. The Mets, who have managed 13 runs in their last six games, are 2 for 27 (.074) with runners in scoring position during the series.

All-Star shortstop Jean Segura returned to Milwaukee's lineup after missing nine games because of a strained right hamstring, but was lifted in the eighth. Segura and Young remained tied for tops in the NL with 44 stolen bases.

Brewers prospect Jimmy Nelson allowed one hit over five innings in his first major league start.

Preview:

The Brewers (73-87) hope to have Jean Segura in their lineup on Saturday against New York, while the Mets could be without David Wright again.

A win Saturday would clinch Milwaukee's fifth series victory in its last seven to end the year. The club has won nine of 13.

Segura has missed nine straight contests due to a strained right hamstring, but manager Ron Roenicke said he could start Saturday. He's hitting .296 in 145 games and his 44 stolen bases have him tied with New York's Eric Young for the NL lead.

Wright, who has played in five games since returning from his own strained right hamstring, missed Friday's contest due to a thumb injury. He cleared concussion tests after a changeup to the helmet forced him to leave Thursday's opener, but jammed his right thumb while hitting the dirt on the same play. The Mets (73-87) could use his bat after totaling 11 runs over their last five games.
