Noah Syndergaard continued his stretch of brilliance with another dominant outing, this time against the Brewers in a 3-1 Mets win. He allowed one unearned run in the first and shut down the Brewers until the seventh. With runners on first and third and nobody out, Alex Presley was thrown out at second by Rene Rivera when he attempted to move up a base on a ball in the dirt. Syndergaard then struck out Ramon Flores and Aaron Hill grounded out to end the threat. Syndergaard finished the day with seven innings and 11 strikeouts. He now owns an 1.94 ERA for the year.
Michael Conforto got the scoring started for the Mets in the bottom of the first with a bomb to right field to tie the game at one. The game remained tied until the fourth when Ryan Braun misplayed a ball off Cespedes's bat, setting up a second-and-third situation. Asdrubal Cabrera came through with a single giving the Mets a 3-1 lead.
The Mets' bullpen continued its recent stretch of solid outings. Jim Henderson and Jeurys Familia pitched the final innings and kept the Brewers off the board to nail down the victory and the series sweep.
