Mets 3, Brewers 2

Share

Two hits from Travis Shaw and home runs from Jett Bandy, Jonathan Villar, and Orlando Arcia lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-1 win over the New York Mets on Saturday.

The Mets improved to 12-2 - their best start ever - and also have won five series to open a season for the first time.

After Sean Doolittle (0-1) struck out Carlos Gonzalez and Gerardo Parra to open the ninth, Desmond sent a belt-high, 3-2 fastball over the 402-foot sign in straightaway center as Colorado took 3 of 4 in its only visit to Washington. Scoring would be halted until the 9 when Flores, famously known for tearing up on the field when he thought he had been dealt to Milwaukee in 2015, ended the game, with a solo homer to left center. Nimmo connected for a tying home run against Taylor Williams leading off the sixth on a cold, blustery afternoon at Citi Field. Jesus Aguilar and Lorenzo Cain both scored on a throwing error in the sixth to give the Brewers a 2-1 lead.

About the only bit of bad news for the banged-up Brewers was another injury: Ryan Braun was removed in the fifth inning with back tightness.

Right-handers Noah Syndergaard of the Mets and Jhoulys Chacin of the Brewers didn't factor into the decision despite eventful starts. He struck out eight straight between the second and the fourth, two shy of the major league record set by ex-Mets pitcher Tom Seaver.

The only offense the Mets (11-2) could muster came on a bloop RBI single by Yoenis Cespedes off Anderson (1-1), who allowed just two hits in 6 1/3 innings. Anderson allowed just two hits and a single earned run while walking two and striking out five.
