–Jeff McNeil’s two-run single in the bottom of the eighth helped the Mets walk-off with a win over the Brewers in game one of the doubleheader in New York on Wednesday afternoon.
The Brewers got solo home runs from Luis Urias and Jace Peterson off of Mets’ starter Jacob DeGrom to take a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh, but Josh Hader gave up the tying home run to Jose Peraza in the seventh to send the game to extras – Hader’s first blown save of the year.
Christian Yelich got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the top of the eighth to put the Brewers back in front, but Brent Suter loaded the bases right back up after hitting a batter and walking another – leading to McNeil’s heroics with nobody out.
Milwaukee 5, NY Mets 0 (Game 2)
–Manny Pina and Luis Urias each clubbed a two-run homer, while Willy Adames added a solo shot as the Brewers earned a split with the Mets in Wednesday’s doubleheader.
