The Happy Nightcap
Mets take the series from the team with the best home record in baseball.
Jonathan Niese gave the Brewers a steady diet of, old-school, wicked curveballs tonight going 7.2 innings - giving up just 1 run on 3 hits and striking out 8 - for the win.
K-Rod came on with 2 outs and 2 on in the 8th and got Ryan Braun out to end the threat. Braun crushed the ball but Jason Pridie - playing for
The Mets pounded out 10 hits and scored 4 runs against Yovani Gallardo, chasing him from the game before he recorded an out in the 5th. Gallardo had won his last 6 starts, pitching to a 1.32 ERA over that span, so knocking him out of the game was no small task. The Mets totaled 11 hits for the game, without any coming off the bat of the red-hot Jose Reyes, who took a rare 0 for 5.
