Milwaukee Brewers End New York Mets 9-Game Winning Streak - This Is Sports Zone
 
 

After rolling along for nearly two weeks, the New York Mets met their match on the mound. Chase Anderson breezed into the seventh inning on a windy Fireworks Night at Citi Field, and the Milwaukee Brewers stopped New York’s nine-game winning streak with a 5-1 victory Saturday. Jonathan Villar sliced a three-run homer inside the foul pole and Jett Bandy also went deep against Matt Harvey as Milwaukee finally cooled off the Mets (11-2) and improved to 6-2 away from home. Slumping shortstop Orlando Arcia came off the bench and homered in the ninth inning.

The only bad news for the banged-up Brewers: Ryan Braun was removed as a precaution in the fifth with back tightness and said he was unsure if he’ll play Sunday.

The only offense the Mets could muster was a bloop RBI single by Yoenis Cespedes off Anderson (1-1), who allowed just two hits on 87 pitches in 6 1/3 innings. The first was Amed Rosario’s single up the middle on an 0-2 delivery with two outs in the fifth. Anderson made a slight mechanical adjustment between starts, changing the placement of his hand after Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo was picking up pitches in a previous outing. Jeremy Jeffress and Josh Hader finished the three-hitter. Hader retired all six batters he faced, striking out the first five, for his first major league save . He kept the game ball as a souvenir.

Harvey (0-1) gave up a leadoff double to Travis Shaw in the second and walked Domingo Santana. One out later, Villar curled an opposite-field drive just inside the left-field pole. Bandy, subbing for injured catcher Manny Pina, homered to left in the fourth. Harvey was charged with four runs and eight hits in five innings. He threw 95 pitches and has gone 11 consecutive starts without getting an out in the sixth, the longest current streak in the majors.

The former ace gave up homers to the No. 7 and No. 8 batters in Milwaukee’s lineup. Both connected for the first time this season — Bandy’s long ball was his first in the majors since May 26 last year.
