The Milwaukee Brewers opened up their six-game homestand by beating the New York Mets on Monday night at Miller Park, 3-2.
Adam Lind had two hits and an RBI, centerfielder Carlos Gomez went 1-2 in his return from a nagging hip injury, and Mike Fiers surrendered two earned runs and four hits over six innings for Milwaukee (26-46), who sent New York (36-36) down to their sixth straight defeat.
Mets leftfielder Michael Cuddyer’s error on Lind’s seventh inning double, allowing Gomez to score opened the door for the Brewers, who had lost eight of their last nine games coming into Monday’s contest.
While Fiers did not factor into the decision, he notch a quality start. Francisco Rodriguez came on in the ninth inning and recorded his 14th save.
Game two of the series is Tuesday night. Jimmy Nelson (3-8, 4.64 ERA) pitches for Milwaukee against New York’s Bartolo Colon (9-5, 4.81 ERA).
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
