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.
