Thanks to Robert Gsellman’s performance on the mound and at the plate and a quick rally after the team briefly fell behind, the Mets beat the Brewers today by a 4-2 score. Gsellman drove in two runs, one of them on a sacrifice fly in the fifth and the other on a bases-loaded walk—with an assist to C.B. Bucknor’s strike zone—in the sixth.

And it wasn’t just those things that Gsellman did. He threw seven innings, gave up just three hits, two runs—one of which was unearned—and struck out five with two walks. He’s looking at a switch to the bullpen in the near future, but another start like this one might make the Mets at least rethink things.

As for the Mets’ other two runs, Rene Rivera doubled in one of them just before Gsellman’s sac fly, and Michael Conforto double in Rivera later in that fifth inning. And the Mets’ lead held up, with Paul Sewald and Addison Reed throwing a scoreless inning apiece, the latter with just a tiny bit of drama.

Full recap to follow.
