A two-out walk-off blast by New York Mets utility infielder Wilmer Flores handed the Mets the series win over the Brewers, with a 3-2 score on Sunday. Early on, it appeared that pitching would dominate the headlines with Mets ace Noah Syndergaard looking strong early, pitching 5.1 innings and striking out 11 Brewers, including eight in a row. Syndergaard exited the game in the 6th after a Jesus Aguilar single, giving the ball to Robert Gsellman. Gsellman then walked Lorenzo Cain and allowed an infield single to Domingo Santana to load the bases. Hernan Perez would knock in two, reaching on a throwing error by shortstop Amed Rosario, giving the Brewers a 2-1 lead. New York wasted no time to get at least one run back, as Brandon Nimmo hit a lead-off home run to tie the game at 2 in the 6th. Scoring would be halted until the 9th when Flores, famously known for tearing up on the field when he thought he had been dealt to Milwaukee in 2015, ended the game, with a solo homer to left center. The Brewers fall to 8-8 in the 2018 campaign and return to Milwaukee to start a 3 game series against the Cincinnati Reds. Brent Suter takes the mound tonight with the first pitch scheduled for 6:40.
