The Milwaukee Brewers have been swept for the first time this year in a series of at least three games, after falling to the Mets 3-1 at Citi Field on Sunday.
Noah Syndergaard dominated the Brewers for seven innings, striking out 11.
Chase Anderson took the loss but deserved a better fate. The Brewers failed to make a play on a shallow fly ball in left inning off the bat of Yoenis Cespedes. That kept the fourth inning alive longer and eventually saw Asdrubal Cabrera line a single to right that scored a pair of runs to make it 3-1. That’s all the Mets and Syndergaard would need.
The Brewers did actually have runners at the corners in the 7th inning with nobody out but came up empty.
The Brewers managed to score just seven runs in the three game series. They scored their only run of the game in the first inning on a Jonathan Lucroy run scoring single.
The Brewers are off today. They’ll open a 3-game series in Atlanta against the Braves on Tuesday night.
