"She watched the game today in Venezuela", Pina said.
The Brewers swept the three-game series. "The offense was incredible". That can be crucial if he provides a similar effort this afternoon because if we get the desirable standout performance from deGrom, Peralta is capable of doing the rest until the Brewers' above-average bullpen gets involved. The Mets had led 7-1 with two outs in the sixth when Jacob deGrom allowed a two-run homer to Keon Broxton, and he departed after a leadoff single in the seventh.
Both Jerry Blevins and Fernando Salas pitched on Sunday after three days, so while the whole being overused early on in the season is completely valid, for this specific game, they should have been somewhat fresh and ready.
Conforto batted in the third spot of the order for the first time this season, and he delivered. "I think that's the first time I've ever gotten two hits in the same inning", Shaw said.
Knebel worked a flawless ninth to earn his first save of the season.
"I felt like there were some calls missed, specifically on our side, so I made a decision to let him know", Walker said, adding he believed the Mets pitchers faced a small strike zone. "We just kind of chipped away". That homerun was part of an 8 run 5th inning for Milwaukee. "They have all been through a game like this, they have all been through a series like this before", manager Terry Collins said. "I thought he burned himself out getting out of the fifth".
Rangers 6, A's 4 • Nomar Mazara snapped a 4-4 tie with an RBI single, the second game in a row he had the go-ahead hit in the seventh inning. Starter Wily Peralta struggled through 4 1/3 innings for Milwaukee, allowing seven hits and seven runs.
"That was on me", Walker said. "Sometimes those games are going to be like that, and the only thing that matters is we get a win".
He fired a 3-2 slider to Manny Pina that caught too much of the plate, and Pina hit a three-run homer into the second deck in left field that put the Mets in an 11-9 hole.
NOTES: The Brewers moved to four games over.500 for the first time since September 24 of that same season. Robert Gsellman (2-3) was charged with six runs, five earned, and nine hits in four-plus innings.
It was a solid game for Travis Shaw as the the third baseman went 3-5 with 4 RBIs including a homerun in the 5th inning.
The ejection was Walker's first in his seven major league seasons.
The Brewers had their biggest comeback since July 2, 2011, when the beat the Twins in Minnesota 8-7 after falling behind 7-0.
