Yesterday's Results

Brewers 3, Mets 1

The Brewers put up single runs in the third, fourth, and fifth innings to back a solid start from Wily Peralta. Peralta pitched 6 1/3 innings and allowed only one run, allowing four hits, a walk, and striking out three. Meanwhile, Jonathan Lucroy led the offense with a 3-for-5 day, and Carlos Gomez and Scooter Gennett also recorded 2-for-5 games. Francisco Rodriguez closed the game for his 20th save of the season.
