Final Score: Brewers 4, Mets 2 – Just another boring 4-2 defeat

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets clinched a protected draft pick by falling to the Milwaukee Brewers this afternoon by a score of 4-2.

On Saturday afternoon, the Mets played their second to last game of the 2013 season and fell to the Milwaukee Brewers for the third game in a row by a score of 4-2. In losing this one, the Mets have officially clinched a protected first round pick in the 2014 amateur draft. With a win on Mike Piazza day tomorrow afternoon, they can match their 2012 season record of 74-88.

This one was a quiet affair, as both Aaron Harang and Jimmy Nelson traded mostly scoreless frames. The Brewers got a run across the plate first on Carlos Gomez's long home run off of Harang in the top of the fourth inning (and thankfully, catcher Anthony Recker did not block Gomez from crossing home plate like a certain Braves' catcher did earlier this week). The Mets got the run back on a Daniel Murphy sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fourth. The two teams put up zeroes until the top of the eighth inning, when Vic Black loaded up the bases on a walk and a pair of soft singles, and Yuniesky Betancourt drove a sacrifice fly to left field to plate the go-ahead run. The Mets tied things up in the ninth against Donovan Hand, as Eric Young grounded an RBI double down the third base line but Scott Atchison allowed a pair of runs in the top of the 10th to seal it for the Brew Crew.
