The Mets led this game 1-0 after two innings, thanks to a Lucas Duda sacrifice fly. That would be both the beginning and the end of Mets scoring on the night. All told, the lineup mustered just five hits and one walk. Curtis Granderson had a nice game at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double and a walk. David Wright went 0-for-4.
deGrom pounded the strike zone, walking just one while striking out four in 5.2 innings pitched. However, the Brewers made solid contact against him, notching nine hits. Their first run came on a Jonathan Lucroy RBI groundout in the third inning that tied the score 1-1. Then Jean Segura gave his team a 2-1 lead with an RBI single in the fourth inning. Carlos Gomez closed the Brewers' account with an RBI single in the fifth inning. The Brew Crew had runners on base all game and the Mets were lucky to give up just three runs.
Terry Collins was ejected in the fifth inning for arguing a call that umpires reviewed, upheld, and, apparently, still got wrong. Taylor Teagarden was called out on a bang-bang play at first base, but replays seemed to show that he was safe. Weird.
Francisco "Perp-Rod" Rodriguez pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning to earn the save.
