TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch: 8:10 PM

Preview:

Matt Garza should be pretty well-rested when he takes the mound Thursday night.

That's because the Milwaukee Brewers right-hander followed some time off for the All-Star break with the shortest start of his career, leaving him with fewer than 50 pitches thrown in the last two weeks as he gets ready to face the visiting New York Mets in the opener of a four-game series.

Garza (6-7, 4.04 ERA) allowed two runs and three hits over 7 2/3 innings in his final outing before the break, a 9-1 home loss to Philadelphia on July 10. He had eight days off before starting in Washington on Saturday, and the rest didn't help.

Garza gave up five runs and five hits while walking two and recording just one out while throwing 42 pitches.

Garza, who went 4-2 with a 2.35 ERA in his previous six starts, also said he wasn't concerned.

The Brewers (57-45) considered bringing Garza back earlier, but he said he didn't want to mess up anyone else's routine.

The decision has paid off for NL Central-leading Milwaukee, which is coming off a three-game sweep of Cincinnati highlighted by a 2.29 ERA from its starters. Kyle Lohse pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and Mark Reynolds homered twice in Wednesday's 5-1 victory.

The Brewers have won five of seven following a 1-11 stretch.

The Brewers will next face Dillon Gee, who also lost his first start after the break. Gee (4-2, 2.92) allowed four runs and five hits -- two homers -- in five innings of a 6-0 defeat at San Diego on Saturday.

The Mets (48-53) enter this series after Bartolo Colon was perfect through 6 2/3 innings of a 3-2 win over Seattle on Wednesday. They took two of three against the Mariners and have split the first six contests of a 10-game trip.

Gee has lost all three starts against Milwaukee behind a 6.75 ERA, while Garza hasn't received a decision in two outings versus the Mets despite posting a 1.93 ERA.

Neither pitched when the Brewers took two of three in New York from June 10-12.

Happy Recap: Game 85 Mets (2) at Brewers (1) - Hefner takes care of Brewers

W: J. Hefner (4-6) L: T. Gorzelanny (1-2) S: B. Parnell (15)
HR: NYM - None   MIL - J. Lucroy (10)

Recap:

Jeremy Hefner tossed seven effective innings and Josh Satin went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI to lead the New York Mets over the Milwaukee Brewers, 2-1, in the finale of a three-game series at Miller Park.

Hefner (4-6) struck out eight and allowed only two hits -- one a home run to Jonathan Lucroy -- to win his third straight decision.

"He had command of his stuff," Mets manager Terry Collins said of his starter. "He made one bad pitch pretty much the whole game."

Bobby Parnell recorded a four-out save for the Mets, who took the rubber match and improved to 4-1-2 in their last seven series

Tom Gorzelanny (1-2) was a hard-luck loser in a spot start for the Brewers, surrendering just two unearned runs and eight hits over six innings.

Juan Francisco, starting at third base in place of the injured Aramis Ramirez, had a pair of throwing errors that led to both New York runs, and Milwaukee was unable to recover in losing for the third time in four games.

With a runner on second and two outs in the fourth, Andrew Brown hit a slow chopper down the line that Francisco barehanded and threw wildly to first. The throw was high and got away from Sean Halton and allowed Satin to cross the plate and break the scoreless tie.

In the sixth, another errant throw from Francisco advanced Marlon Byrd to second, and Satin followed with an double off the bottom of the right-field wall to put the Mets on top by a 2-0 margin.

"Slow rollers are always tough plays," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of the errors. "If he makes good throws, both are outs."

The only hit allowed by Hefner in the first six innings was an infield single to Halton in the second frame. Hefner went up 0-2 in the count on Lucroy leading off the seventh before Lucroy hammered a fastball over the wall in left center to get the Brewers on the board.

Hefner retired the next three and gave way to the bullpen after throwing 105 pitches, 71 for strikes.

Josh Edgin recorded the first two outs in the eighth, and Parnell got All-Star Jean Segura on a routine groundout to second to strand a runner in scoring position.

Parnell worked around a two-out walk in the ninth to pick up his 15th save of the year.

Game Notes

The Mets picked up 11 hits to Milwaukee's three ... Hefner has not lost since June 11 against the Cardinals. He has allowed one earned run in six of his last seven starts, lowering his ERA from 4.74 to 3.39 ... Satin is riding an 11-game hitting streak ... Gorzelanny also recorded eight strikeouts in starting for the injured Wily Peralta, who had his outing pushed back because of a left hamstring issue.

Preview:

Jeremy Hefner got off to a disappointing start to the season, but has since turned things around and proven to be a reliable option in the New York Mets' rotation.

New York hopes Hefner's run of solid starts continues on Sunday as they visit the Milwaukee Brewers for the finale of their three-game series.

Hefner (3-6, 3.54 ERA) opened the season 0-5 with a 4.50 ERA, with the Mets (36-48) losing all nine of his starts. In seven starts since, he is 3-1 with a 2.09 ERA with a walk rate of 1.47 per nine innings. The right-hander issued 3.60 base on balls per nine in his first nine starts.

He held Arizona to a run and four hits over seven innings in a 9-1 win on Tuesday -- his seventh quality start in eight games.

"If I give a quality outing, go deep into games, I've done my job," said Hefner, who yielded a solo homer. "If we score runs, then I'll get a win. If we don't, then I might get a no-decision or whatever. Just as long as the team wins, I'm happy."

Recap:

Jonathan Lucroy hit a solo homer and added an RBI single while Logan Schafer went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead the Milwaukee Brewers over the New York Mets, 7-6, in the middle test of a three-game series.

Francisco Rodriguez gave up a solo homer to Marlon Byrd in the ninth, but struck out the side to close out the win and his eighth save of the year.

Norichika Aoki added two hits, scored a run and knocked in another during Milwaukee's 12-hit outburst, which snapped a two-game slide and gave the Brewers just their third win in their last 11 games.

Yovani Gallardo (7-8) picked up a win after failing to make it past the fourth in his previous two outings, as the veteran righty gave up six hits and four runs over six innings of work.

John Buck homered and drove in three runs and Daniel Murphy went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored for the Mets, who couldn't build off Friday's 12-5 victory.

Shaun Marcum (1-10) suffered his 10th loss by allowing his former team to score six times on 11 hits over his five-plus innings on the hill. Marcum played for the Brewers the previous two seasons and allowed them to score in each of the first four frames.

"He left a lot of balls up," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Marcum. "Tonight was a tough night for him pitching back here. It wasn't a normal night for him."

Aoki scored on Lucroy's base hit in the first inning and added an RBI single himself in the second.

Jean Segura, who was voted to his first All-Star Game on Saturday, tacked on a run-scoring sacrifice fly in the second and singled in Gallardo in the fourth after Lucroy had made it 4-0 an inning earlier with his ninth home run of the season.

Buck put the Mets on the board with a leadoff homer in the fifth before Murphy doubled home Omar Quintanilla later in the frame.

Both teams scored runs in the sixth, with Buck driving in a pair with a one- out base hit and Schafer coming around on Murphy's two-base error.

Brewers reliever John Axford loaded the bases with one out in the seventh and limited the damage to Byrd's sacrifice fly. Milwaukee got the run back in the bottom half when Rickie Weeks worked a two-out walk, stole second and scored on Schafer's double.

"Aggressive baserunning worked out well for us," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.

Game Notes

Both teams stranded nine runners ... Sunday's rubber match will pit Milwaukee's Wily Peralta against New York's Jeremy Hefner ... Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez will join Segura at the All-Star Game, while the host Mets are sending third baseman David Wright and pitcher Matt Harvey.

Recap:

Ike Davis made his return to the New York Mets after tweaking some things in the minors and hopes to stay on track when his club resumes a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday.

Davis last played with the Mets on June 9 and returned for Friday's 12-5 pounding of the Brewers at Miller Park, finishing 3-for-5 with two RBI and a pair of runs scored. Davis batted .293 with seven home runs in 75 Minor League at-bats.

But the story of Friday's win was Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who went 4-for-4 with five RBI and three runs scored. Nieuwenhuis became the first Met since Mike Piazza on May 27, 2000 to reach base six times in a nine-inning game.

"I don't know if I've ever done that at any level," he said. "It felt great. It was a good night. I just felt relaxed at the plate."

Juan Lagares drove in three runs and Eric Young recorded two hits and three runs scored for the Mets, who opened a nine-game road trip and have won 11 of their last 18 games. The Mets are unbeaten in three straight road games and took advantage of three Milwaukee errors.

"That's how you win at this level," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "If you're going to have games where teams are going to give you outs, you'd better take advantage of it."

Zack Wheeler earned the win in his third major league start and wasn't sharp, as he gave up three runs -- one earned -- and seven hits in five innings. Josh Edgin pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief for his first save.

Josh Satin did not play Friday and has reached base safely in his last 15 games played. He has also hit in a career-best 10 straight games.

Recap:

Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 4-for-4 with five RBI and three runs scored to lead the New York Mets to a 12-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game set at Miller Park.

Juan Lagares drove in three runs and Ike Davis went 3-for-5 with two RBI in his first game in the majors since he was demoted to Triple-A earlier this season. John Buck also drove in a run for the Mets, winners in three of their last five games.

Zack Wheeler (2-1) gave up three runs -- one earned -- on seven hits over five innings to earn the win.

Nieuwenhuis became the first Met since Mike Piazza, May 27, 2000, to reach base six times in a nine-inning game.

"I don't know if I've ever done that at any level," he said. "It felt great. It was a good night. I just felt relaxed at the plate."

Carlos Gomez went 4-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI, Juan Francisco hit a solo homer while Aramis Ramirez added am RBI for the Brewers, losers in eight of their last 10 games.

Johnny Hellweg (0-2) was tagged for seven runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and five walks over 3 2/3 innings to absorb the loss.

"He has a great fastball, a nice moving fastball, and a great breaking ball, but he has to command those pitches," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "Unless you can command it in the big leagues, you're not going to do well."

The Mets wasted no time and jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. With the bases loaded, Nieuwenhuis walked to force home Eric Young. Lagares then grounded into a force out, but it was enough to plate David Wright.

Milwaukee, though, came back with a pair of runs of their own in the home half to tie the game. Norichika Aoki singled and Jean Segura reached on Daniel Murphy's fielding error to put two on and no outs for Gomez, who laced a double to right field to score Aoki. Segura also tried to score on the play, but was cut down at the plate after Omar Quintanilla delivered a strike to Buck at home.

Ramirez followed with a sacrifice fly to left push Gomez across.

New York scored three in the second inning. With two on and one out, Davis slapped a single to the left side to score Quintanilla. Nieuwenhuis followed with a two-run single to right to give the Mets a 5-2 lead.

"Tonight was great for us after yesterday," Nieuwenhuis said, referring to a 15-inning loss to Arizona Thursday. "We weren't dragging."

The Mets extended their spread to 7-2 in the fourth. Nieuwenhuis singled home Wright and Davis scored on Ramirez's throwing error to make it a five-run game.

Francisco smacked a solo homer in the fourth inning to make it 7-3.

Buck singled home Nieuwenhuis in the sixth, but Gomez ripped an RBI double in the seventh to keep the Brewers within four runs.

The teams traded RBI singles in the eighth before the Mets busted it open with a three-run ninth inning. Ike Davis got things started with an RBI single to right field. Nieuwenhuis followed with a triple to center to score Davis and Lagares capped the scoring with a base hit to center to give New York the decisive 12-5 advantage.

Josh Edgin pitched the final 1 1/3 innings for his first major league save.

Game Notes

Davis was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier on Friday. To make room on the active roster, pitcher Gonzalez Germen was optioned to Las Vegas ... Nieuwenhuis also walked twice and reached base safely in all six of his plate appearances ... Wright has scored 18 runs over his last 27 games ... Milwaukee fell to 19-24 at home this season.

Preview:

Right-handed phenom Zack Wheeler gets his fourth crack at a major-league mound on Friday when the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers meet at Miller Park to begin a three-game weekend series.

The sixth overall pick of the 2009 draft by the San Francisco Giants, Wheeler came to New York's organization as part of the trade that sent Carlos Beltran to the west coast in July 2011.

Wheeler debuted in the majors in his native Georgia against the Atlanta Braves and emerged with a 6-1 win after holding the hosts to four hits in six scoreless innings with five walks and seven strikeouts.

The two subsequent outings haven't gone quite as smoothly for the 23-year-old, who's allowed nine runs on 10 hits in just 10 innings against the Chicago White Sox and Washington Nationals.

He allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Nationals on June 30, walking two batters and striking out five in a game the Mets ultimately lost, 13-2.

For the Brewers, righty Johnny Hellweg makes his second start in his third big-league outing.

The 24-year-old Michigan native made his inaugural start at Pittsburgh on June 28, but retired just five batters while allowing five earned runs on six hits in a 10-3 loss to the Pirates.

He made a one-inning relief appearance for the Brewers three days later and allowed one earned run on two hits in a 10-5 loss at Washington.

Recap: Game 146 - Mets at Brewers - Braun, Peralta Enough for Mets, Lose 3-0

S: J. Axford (29)
HR: NYM - None   MIL - R. Braun (39),A. Ramirez (24),R. Braun (40)

Recap:
Ryan Braun hit two homers, Wily Peralta pitched eight shutout innings, and John Axford closed it out in the ninth as the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the New York Mets 3-0 to take the rubber match of a three-game set.

Braun's second homer was his 40th of the season, marking the first time in his career that he has reached the plateau.

The Brewers won for the 20th time in their last 26 games and trail the Cardinals by 2 1/2 games for the final NL wild card spot.

The Mets managed only two hits, both off of Peralta (2-0), who made just the third start of his career. He fanned five and walked only one.

"He had a good 96 mph fastball and a good sinker," said manager Ron Roenicke, who was very impressed with his young pitcher. "He kept the ball down in the zone and had a good slider with great command."

Chris Young (4-8) pitched well, but gave up three homers to account for all of the Brewers' runs. He lasted 6 2/3 innings, giving up eight hits while striking out two.

Braun and Aramis Ramirez went back-to-back to start the bottom half of the fourth to give the Brewers a 2-0 lead. Braun added another run when he hit his second homer to lead off the bottom of the sixth.

"They can do damage in this ballpark," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "Two hits won't get you far."

Josh Thole and Andres Torres were the only batters to record hits for the Mets.

Axford record his 29th save of the season after working around a one-out walk to Daniel Murphy.

Game Notes

The Mets have lost the season series with the Brewers for three straight years ... The Brewers set a franchise record for season strikeouts with 1,259 when Peralta struck out Lucas Duda in the second inning ... Peralta's double in the seventh inning was the first of his career ... Braun now has 201 home runs for his career.

Preview:
Dominican rookie Wily Peralta makes the third start of his brief big-league career - and first against New York - when the Milwaukee Brewers host the Mets in the finale of a three-game series at Miller Park.

Peralta, who debuted with the Milwaukee organization as a 17-year-old in 2006, made his big-league debut on April 22 when he tossed an inning of one-run relief, allowing three hits, in the Brewers' 4-1 loss to Colorado.

He made 28 starts at Triple-A Nashville and posted a 4.66 earned run average in 146 2/3 innings, then returned to the majors and earned his initial victory with six innings of three-run ball in his first start at Miami on Sept. 5.

Peralta allowed a run on seven hits in the follow-up effort five days later against Atlanta and got a no-decision in Milwaukee's 4-1 victory.

In 13 combined innings, Peralta has walked five batters, struck out eight and allowed a composite .319 batting average.

He'll be opposed by 33-year-old Texas native Chris Young, who faces the Brewers for the third time in his 157th big-league start.

It's his first meeting with them since Sept. 7, 2008, when he tossed a complete-game two-hitter, allowing a single run and striking out five in a 10-1 triumph.

Recap:
Rickie Weeks hit a home run, scored twice and drove in three to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-6 victory over the New York Mets in the second meeting of three-game set.

Pinch-hit triples from Logan Schafer and Travis Ishikawa plated three runs for the Brewers, who have won 19 of their last 25 games to stay within striking distance of the NL Wild Card chase.

Ike Davis hit a two-run homer in the ninth to bring the Mets within three, but it wasn't enough, as New York dropped its seventh game in its last eight tries.

Shaun Marcum didn't pitch long enough to be considered for the win as he was pinch-hit for during a five-run fourth inning for the Brewers. Brandon Kitnzler (2-0) positioned himself for the victory after pitching a scoreless fifth.

Ruben Tejada, Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda each came through with an RBI for the Mets, but starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia (0-1) lasted just three-plus innings in his first start of the season, allowing five runs on six hits while walking five.

"Command is what we really have to get straightened out," said Mets manager Terry Collins of his young pitcher. "Once the game starts you hope he settles down. I'm sure he was pretty excited. It's tough to pitch up here behind in the count."

After Duda brought home Murphy in the top of the first, Ryan Braun came through with an RBI double in the bottom half to plate Weeks, who drew a one- out walk.

The Mets put together a three-run fourth before being shut out over the next four innings. Jordany Valdespin singled on the ground to right, moved to second on a wild pitch from Marcum and stole third with Andres Torres at the plate. Torres drew a walk and Mejia sacrificed him to second while Valdespin came around to score.

Tejada reached on a base hit through the right side to bring Torres home from second before Murphy doubled to left to plate Tejada and give the Mets a 4-1 lead. Marcum struck out David Wright to end his outing, scattering four runs on seven hits.

"Shaun didn't have good command. He's a command pitcher but he didn't have it," said Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke. "I don't know what the reason is. I thought his stuff was good, his fastball was good, but his location wasn't."

The Mets' advantage didn't last long as the Brewers struck back in the bottom half of the fourth. Nyjer Morgan drew a leadoff walk and moved to second on a base hit by Jean Segura. Schafer pinch-hit for Marcum and drove both runners in with a triple to right field.

Mejia walked Norichika Aoki before he was replaced by Jeremy Hefner, who threw a wild pitch to Weeks which allowed Aoki to advance to second and Schafer to score from third. Weeks then hit a two-run homer to left-center, his 20th of the season, to cap a five-run inning for the Brewers.

After Ishikawa and Aoki each brought home a run in the bottom of the fifth, Milwaukee added one more in the seventh. Segura got on with a leadoff walk, stole second and moved to third on Kelly Shoppach's throwing error before scoring on an RBI double from Weeks.

Game Notes

The Mets were 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left nine on base ... The Brewers went 6-for-15 with runners in scoring position and also left nine stranded ... New York will send Chris Young to the mound on Sunday to face Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta in the rubber match of the series.

Preview:
Right-hander Jenrry Mejia makes his first start of 2012 and fourth of his career Saturday when the New York Mets try to make it two straight over the Milwaukee Brewers in the middle contest of a three-game series at Miller Park.

The 205-pounder debuted in the minors with the Mets as a 17-year-old and gradually climbed the ladder, initially winning two games in 14 appearances in Single-A ball in 2007.

He reached Double-A in 2009 and ultimately debuted in the majors in 2010, starting three times in 33 appearances while posting an 0-4 record and a 4.62 earned run average across 39 innings.

Mejia was limited to just five starts at Triple-A Buffalo last season, and was 4-4 in 30 appearances in the minors this year before a Sept. 7 return to majors yielded a two-inning relief outing against Atlanta in a 3-0 Mets loss.

He has faced the Brewers once and allowed a hit in a scoreless relief outing.

For Milwaukee, righty Shaun Marcum makes his first appearance at home since June 8.

The 30-year-old was a 9-5 winner over the San Diego Padres on June 8 at Miller Park, where he allowed three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings to improve 5-3 on the season.

He's 0-1 in five road appearances since, including a no-decision in Milwaukee's 5-4 loss at St. Louis on Sept. 9, when Marcum allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings of work.

In two career meetings with the Mets, he's 1-0 and has given up just one run on eight hits in 13 innings.

Marcum is 3-1 in six home starts with a 4.17 ERA in 2012.

Recap:
Daniel Murphy stroked a two-run homer and Lucas Duda added a solo shot to lead the New York Mets to a 7-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game set at Miller Park.

Ike Davis and Josh Thole also drove in a run for the Mets, who had dropped eight of their last nine entering the game.

"They (the Brewers) play great here," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "They're still in the (playoff) hunt. If they make a mistake we have to capitalize, and tonight we did."

Jonathon Niese (11-9) gave up two runs on six hits and struck out five over six innings to snap a three-start losing streak.

Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 and Travis Ishikawa, Nyjer Morgan and Mike Fiers each knocked in a run for the Brewers, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Fiers (9-8) was tagged for four runs on six hits and struck out four over five innings to absorb the loss.

"Larry was tight. I know pitchers want pitches off the plate, but there weren't many that Larry missed," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of home plate umpire Larry Vanover." We haven't played this type of game in quite a while. We're going to have one every once in a while. No one expected us to be in this thing (the wild card race), but we got back in it. We just didn't play that well today.

The Mets pushed two across in each of the first two innings.

In the first, Murphy walked then moved to third on David Wright's double to left field. Davis followed with a ground out to first base, allowing Murphy to score.

Duda then ripped a ground-rule double to right field to score Wright.

In the second, Niese singled before Murphy smacked a two-run homer over the right-field wall.

The Brewers got two back in the home half to cut it to 4-2. Jonathan Lucroy singled, moved to second on a Carlos Gomez bloop single, then scored when Ishikawa hit a ground-rule double to left field.

Two batters later, Fiers helped his own cause with a single to score Ishikawa.

New York added three in the sixth inning to push its lead to 7-2.

Duda opened the inning with his 14th homer of the season. After a Jordany Valdespin pop out, Andres Torres reached on a throwing error before coming around on a Thole double. Niese's infield single allowed Thole to move to third before crossing the plate on Ruben Tejada's ground out.

Milwaukee added a run in the ninth when Morgan roped a triple to right-center field to score Jean Segura.

Game Notes

Niese walked three batters for the first time in his last 18 starts in which he went at least six innings ... New York was just 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position ... Wright, who went 2-for-5, extended his hitting streak to eight games ... The Brewers fell to 11-17 against the NL East ... Milwaukee went 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left eight on base.

Preview:
Right-hander Mike Fiers tries for the 10th win of his major-league career Friday when the Milwaukee Brewers host the New York Mets to begin a three-game weekend series at Miller Park.

The Hollywood, Fla. native allowed two hits in two scoreless relief innings with the Brewers last season, then debuted this season in late May and posted a 1.96 earned run average through 10 outings while winning just three times.

He's been more successful with wins and losses since, however, going 6-3 in his last nine appearances, though the ERA has climbed substantially from 1.96 to 3.05.

Fiers was a 6-3 winner at St. Louis in his most recent outing on Sept. 8, allowing a run on five hits in five innings with three walks and five strikeouts.

He has never faced the Mets.

For New York, lefty Jonathon Niese takes the mound with a chance to equal his career-high in wins.

The seventh-round draft pick in 2005 had his major-league breakout season with 11 wins in 27 outings while putting up a 4.40 earned run average in 157 1/3 innings.

He got to win No. 10 this season with a 2-0 defeat of Washington on Aug. 18, but has dropped three consecutive attempts at the record-tying triumph while losing to Houston, Philadelphia and Atlanta.

In those three games, Niese has allowed seven runs in 20 hits in 19 innings.

Happy Recap : 2011 Regular Season Game 62 - Mets at Brewers (Niese Notches Win)


Final Score: New York 4, Milwaukee 1

Jon Niese gave up just one run to help the New York Mets take a 4-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the finale of a three-game set.

Niese (5-5) went 7 2/3 innings and was charged with three hits and four walks along with eight strikeouts for the Mets, who have won four of five. Daniel Murphy, Angel Pagan, Jason Pridie and Ruben Tejada each had an RBI in the win.

"Niese looked really great tonight," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "He took it to them and got ahead of the hitters. It was a really impressive performance from him."

Yovani Gallardo (8-3) lost for the first time since May 2 as he gave up four runs on 10 hits over just four-plus innings for the Brewers, who dropped two of three in the series after taking a four-game sweep of Florida. Prince Fielder drove in the lone run.

"He was off tonight and he had trouble with his command," said Brewers skipper Ron Roenicke. "They didn't miss much with the bats. He just couldn't put his curveball in there and they took advantage of it."

What can we say, the Mets are going against the Brewers' Ace Gallardo and the Mets have Jon Niese to counter. Jon Niese's numbers are lousy against the Brewers in the past.  The Brewers are hitting a even .500 ( 14 for 28) against Niese. It looks like the Mets have their work cut for them tonight as the Mets numbers (below) are not good against Gallardo. Jose Reyes is the only lone Met to have some success against Gallardo. Reyes is hitting .500 (5 for 10) with 2 2B's and 1 3B. Can Reyes rally the Mets to victory?  We will see! LGM!
Reyes proving the Mets need him.
