Win Expectancy Graph

I guess they had to lose again eventually.

The Brewers had won a Miller Park record nine consecutive home games before falling behind early and trailing all night against the Mets tonight. Mike Fiers allowed two runs in the first, two runs in the second and that was enough to doom the Crew. Fiers lasted just five innings tonight and allowed the aforementioned four runs on six hits, walking two and striking out four.

The offense, meanwhile, plated two runs in the second inning and was more or less done for the night after that. From the third through the seventh inning they managed just one hit but it was Aramis Ramirez's 45th double, and he's now tied for the sixth highest single season total in franchise history. Nyjer Morgan plated the Brewers' final run with an RBI triple in the ninth.

The Mets blew the game open in the sixth inning when four of the five batters to face Manny Parra reached base on a single, double, home run and error. Three runs scored to give New York a 7-2 lead.

Tonight's loss dropped the Brewers back to .500 at 72-72, and back behind the Phillies in the race for the final wild card spot. This series continues tomorrow night when Shaun Marcum faces Jenrry Mejia at 6:10.
