Brewers Beat Mets 9-7 To Take Game, Series

Jorge Sosa took the loss for the Mets after entering the game in the fifth and pitching 1.2 innings and giving up 2 runs.

Both starting pitchers were terrible today. If there was a way to give Oliver Perez and Jeff Suppan a loss, this would be the game to do it.

The Brewers turned an eye popping 5 double plays in the game. For a team with no defense, they were able to shut the Mets down with timely double plays.

David Wright hit his third homer in the game and Brian Schneider was 3 for 5 with 3 RBI’s. Schneider’s defense was questionable once again today. Although he didn’t have any PB’s or errors, he couldn’t keep the ball in his glove. I’m starting to think there may be something wrong with him, like a hand injury, that we don’t know about.

The Mets are off on Monday and the Nationals come to town on Tuesday after ending their nine game losing streak today against Tom Glavine and the Braves.

Jeff Suppan (1-0) vs. Oliver Perez (1-0)

What to watch: This is another important game to win a home series. They don’t want to lose home series, especially this early in the season. Oliver Perez has been terrific in his first two starts. He’s pitched 11.2 innings, 0 runs, 4 BB, 10 K’s. Jeff Suppan has done almost as well in his first two starts so this could end up being a good pitching match up.
