Carlos Beltran hit a three-run homer and then Endy Chavez drove in the decisive run in the 10th inning and New York beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 Tuesday night thanks to a stellar effort from its shaky bullpen.
Six relievers combined for seven shutout innings, helping the NL East leaders remain two games ahead of second-place Philadelphia. The Mets improved to 5-2 on their eight-game road trip against playoff contenders, winning for the 16th time in 21 games overall.
The Mets seem to be hitting their stride at exactly the right moment. Well for them, not us. It’s making things very tough as every night when we look at the scoreboard theres a W next to the Mets. Come on you yahoos, start losing some games.
