Two costly throwing errors by Brewers third baseman Juan Francisco led to a pair of unearned runs Sunday. That was enough to send the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. The Mets took the weekend series 2-1.
Tom Gorzelanny took the hard-luck loss in a spot-start our of the bullpen. Gorzelanny lasted 6-innings, allowing the 2-unearned runs on 8-hits while fanning 8-Mets. Manager Ron Roenicke was happy with the efforts of his starter…
As good as Gorzelanny was for Milwaukee, Jeremy Hefner was better for New York. Hefner pitched 7-innings of 2-hit baseball for the win. His only mishap was serving up a solo home run to Jonathan Lucroy in the 7th inning. For Lucroy, it was his 10th of the year.
Milwaukee sits at 35-52 on the year, a season-low 17-games under .500. The Cincinnati Reds are in town Monday night for a 7:10 first pitch to open a 3-game series. Kyle Lohse (4-6, 3.43 ERA) pitches for Milwaukee against Homer Bailey (5-6, 3.57 ERA) of Cincinnati. Bailey tossed a no-hitter against San Francisco in his last outing.
