Rapid Reaction: Brewers 4, Mets 2
By Adam Rubin
NEW YORK -- Carlos Torres allowed first-inning homers to Norichika Aoki and Khris Davis during a three-run frame and the Milwaukee Brewers ultimately beat the Mets 4-2 Friday at Citi Field.
The Mets had closed to within a run and loaded the bases with one out in the sixth against Yovani Gallardo. But Juan Lagares struck out. And Daniel Murphy then was tagged out at the plate to end the inning. Murphy unsuccessfully tried to score on a pitch that squirted not far from catcher Martin Maldonado.
Maldonado homered the following half-inning against Scott Atchison as the Brewers took a 4-2 lead.
What’s next: Aaron Harang (5-12, 5.57 ERA) opposes rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson (0-0, 0.00) at 4:10 p.m. Saturday in Game No. 161.
