Recap:Johnny Hellweg had beaned Mets All-Star David Wright, hit another batter and walked four in the first four innings. Wright too was fine, after being hit in the helmet by a changeup from Hellweg.
The All-Star third baseman went down on hands and knees for several moments before a Mets trainer rushed out to check on him. He then walked off without assistance, flipping his batting helmet in one hand.
Hellweg, the PCL pitcher of the year for Triple-A Nashville, where he was 12-5 with a 3.15 ERA, said he was shaken by the two-out pitch, and it showed. He hit Lucas Duda in the back of the leg with the next pitch and then walked Mike Baxter on four pitches to load the bases.
After loading the bases, Matt den Dekker struck out for the Mets, who entered with a home record worse than all in the National League except the Cubs (31-50).
Coming off a road trip in which they won five of six, the Mets were 0 for 14 with runners in scoring position in dropping to 32-46 at Citi Field.
Alfredo Figaro (3-3) took over and he balked a runner to second when he dropped the ball to the mound while bringing his arm back during his delivery. He pitched two innings for the win.
Dillon Gee (12-11) has been one of the Mets' most consistent pitchers since May 30. He entered with a 2.57 ERA in 21 starts since then and, except for an unfortunate third inning, he shut down the short-handed Brewers for six innings.
Milwaukee was playing without Carlos Gomez, who was serving a one-game suspension for inciting a benches-clearing fracas against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night. Jean Segura missed his eighth straight game because of a strained right hamstring. He entered leading the NL with 44 steals but Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. tied him by swiping two bases. Young scored on Daniel Murphy's groundout in the third.
Jim Henderson gave up a homer, affirmed by video review, to pinch-hitter Josh Satin before striking out three for his 27th save.
The Brewers scored four times in the second, Gee walked Khris Davis to start the inning. Caleb Gindl singled to left-center and, after an out, Juan Francisco drove in a run with a slow-rolling grounder up the middle. Jeff Bianchi added another RBI with a soft blooper to left. Scooter Gennett capped the inning with a two-run single.
Lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth, Gee gave up four runs and seven hits. He walked two in finishing the season at 199 innings, an encouraging sign after missing much of last season following surgery to remove a blood clot from an artery in his pitching shoulder.
