Brewers 8, Mets 0: Zack Attack

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 15: Zack Greinke #13 of the Milwaukee Brewers delivers a pitch in the first-inning against the New York Mets at CitiField on May 15, 2012 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City. (Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images)

Zack Greinke dominated the Mets in seven shutout innings, allowing just five hits while striking out seven and walking none. Dillon Gee was decidedly less impressive. He gave up two home runs to Travis Ishikawa as the Brewers knocked him out after 5.1 innings.

We knew it was over when...

Ishikawa hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning, giving the Brewers a 7-0 lead. It was too large a deficit for even the Mets' spirited offense to come back from.

What else?

David Wright continued to go absolutely H.A.M., finishing 2-for-2 with a double before being lifted in the seventh inning. He didn't take kindly to being removed, as it appeared he gave Terry Collins some lip in the dugout about the decision.

D.J. Carrasco was ejected for hitting Ryan Braun with a pitch in the top of the seventh, ending an opportunity to give the bullpen a rest with some long relief. It looked like an unnecessary heave-ho by home plate umpire Gary Darling, even if Carrasco had given up a solo home run to Rickie Weeks on the previous pitch.

[UPDATE]

Collins said in the post-game Q&A that he pulled Wright and Daniel Murphy specifically to avoid retaliation for hitting Braun.
