The Milwaukee Brewers never felt out of the game, only being down 1-0 in the sixth inning on the road against the New York Mets. Joey Weimer hit his 11th home run of the season off of Drew Smith on a two-run shot, and that is all the Brewers would need over the Mets in a 2-1 win.
Milwaukee Brewers Top the Lifeless New York Mets
This is one of four that the Milwaukee Brewers need to claim in the win column over the reeling New York Mets. Milwaukee is a baseball team that is trying to catch the Cincinnati Reds in the NL Central. As for New York, it is a baseball team that looks like it has quit on manager Buck Showalter.
Craig Counsell, the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers, continues to push the right buttons for this ball club. Milwaukee’s starting pitcher Colin Rea pitched 6.1 innings and only gave up three hits, one run, one walk, and struck out three batters against this reeling New York Mets offense. The Mets’ only run in the game came on a sacrifice fly by Francisco Lindor in the fourth inning. It was a good sign for Rea to have a strong start for this ball club.
Devin Williams picked up his 14th save of the season for the Milwaukee Brewers. One of the most embarrassing things for the Mets is that they made him throw only six pitches in that inning.
The Brewers need to find a way to win at least two more games in this series and maybe potentially sweep it. If the Milwaukee Brewers win or even sweep this series, the New York media will grow louder and louder about the New York Mets’ struggles.
