Jon Niese was shaky and assuredly nervous in his first start for the Mets. That’s to be expected. He got hit pretty hard including Rickie Weeks hitting a lead off home run. Niese only lasted into the fourth inning and gave up five runs.
Carlos Beltran had a great offensive game going 2 for 3 with 3 RBI’s and his 22nd home run. The Brewers defense was really bad including two errors that allowed Daniel Murphy to make it to third base on a sacrifice bunt by Jose Reyes in the tenth. He would score the winning run on a sac fly by Endy Chavez.
The bullpen held up really well tonight throwing seven scoreless innings. That was great to see.
