Fresh off his trip to the White House, Daniel Murphy gave the Mets an early lead with a two-run shot in the bottom of the third. The Brewers got a run back in the top of the fourth on a Lyle Overbay RBI single, but the Mets expanded their lead from an unlikely source in the bottom of the sixth, when three walks set the stage for a two-out grand slam by recent recall Taylor Teagarden. Daisuke Matsuzaka limited the damage in his six innings on the mound, despite getting hit in the leg with a line drive, and the bullpen allowed one run but nought else to help snap the Mets' six-game slide.
Full recap to come.
