Brewers bash Mets pitching again, come back for 11-9 win

Once again, the Mets starter could not get through seven innings.

Rays 11, Red Sox 2 • A day after striking out 16 times in a 6-3 loss, visiting Tampa Bay matched its season high with 16 hits, including a three-run homer by Steven Souza Jr.

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Manny Pina blasted a three-run homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, propelling the Brewers to an 11-9 comeback victory over the New York Mets.

Sunday in Milwaukee, with the Mets desperately trying to salvage a series that had been lost because of pitching already, hitters gave the pitchers more than enough to work, carrying a six-run lead into the sixth inning.

New York Mets' Robert Gsellman pitches to a Milwaukee Brewers batter during the first inning of a baseball game Saturday, May 13, 2017, in Milwaukee.

"This is the big leagues". We were playing two good teams and had a good homestand. Jay Bruce received a day off in right field, but will return to the lineup Monday, according to Collins. "Today was a day we didn't get an out when we needed an out, we didn't make a pitch when we needed to make a pitch".

The Mets bullpen has been taxed this year due to the consistent short outings by the starters, and there's even more of a burden on the unit now that Familia is sidelined.

Shaw finished with three hits and four RBIs.

Neil Walker continued his May resurgence, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles.

The Mets led 8-3 with one on and no outs in the seventh when the first reliever, Jerry Blevins, entered. Wheeler is 1-0 with a 3.48 ERA in two road starts this season.

DeGrom allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings.

"I was fighting every pitch, every pitch. That is all there is to it", deGrom said.

"When I hit that ball, I knew that ball was gone", Pina said. "It's time to do something about it".

Fernando Salas got out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh but was charged with two runs in the eighth.

Reed surrendered a two-run single to Hernan Perez, and came within one pitch of getting out of the inning before allowing the fatal blow. Jose Reyes and T.J. Rivera each chipped in two hits and a run scored.

It marked the first blown save for Reed, who has not had as much bite on his pitches as he did last season during his fantastic campaign. "I don't think it went there, I think it was a slider right out over the middle of the plate".

"That was on me", Walker said. "Nothing I can do now".

Early in the game the Mets had their chances to knock Davies out of the game.

"We have a clubhouse full of veterans".

Manager Terry Collins had feared Familia was dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome, which ended the season of Mets right-hander Matt Harvey past year. Neil Walker got a run back for the Mets in the top of the 7th with an RBI single, but Jonathan Villar hit a two-run dinger of his own bottom half, and Jesus Aguilar followed with an RBI double that was almost a game-tying home run to center.
