Matt Garza rebounded from a poor start last weekend to pitch the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-1 win over the New York Mets last night at Miller Park.
Garza allowed a run on two hits in eight innings of work to improve to 7-7 on the season. He gave up five runs in one-third of an inning last Saturday in Washington. The only run surrendered by Garza came on a seventh-inning homer by Lucas Duda.
Jonathan Lucroy, Khris Davis and Ryan Braun all homered for the Brewers, who won their fourth consecutive game.
The Brewers win gives them the best record (58-45) in the National League and a 3-game lead in the National League Central Division over both St. Louis and Pittsburgh.
Yovani Gallardo (5-5, 3.79) pitches tonight’s game at Miller Park. The Mets go with Zach Wheeler (5-8, 3.78).
