The Milwaukee Brewers remain the best team in the National League following another late-inning win on Friday, defeating the New York Mets 4-3 in extra innings. Travis Shaw had a huge night for the Brewers, tallying 3 RBI on 3 hits including a home run of Mets ace Noah Syndergaard in the second, and the game-winning walk with the bases loaded. The early homer gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the second, but it was short-lived as Amed Rosario took Junior Guerra deep in the top of the 3rd inning to tie the game. Christian Yelich continued his hot hitting ways with an RBI single to score Lorenzo Cain in the bottom of the 3rd to give Milwaukee the lead once again. Travis Shaw padded the lead later in the inning with an RBI single of his own to score Yelich giving Milwaukee a 3-1 lead. New York inched back in the game in the top of the 4th, following a Michael Conforto home run to put the Mets within one run, 3-2. Following four straight half innings of scoring, both teams slowed down, until the 9th when newly acquired utility man Jose Bautista singled off Corey Knebel to tie the game, giving Knebel a blown save. In the bottom of the 10th, Eric Sogard, who was called back up to the MLB squad earlier Friday, hit a one-out single to start the rally. Lorenzo Cain flew out, setting the stage for Christian Yelich who came up with one of his biggest hits as a Brewer, doubling to right field to advance Sogard to third. Hernan Perez came off the bench and drew a walk to load the bases for Travis Shaw, who walked with the bases loaded to win the game. Jeremy Jeffress earned the win, pitching 1.1 innings following the Knebel blown save, dancing out of danger once again after inheriting base runners, followed by a near perfect 10th inning. Milwaukee and New York square off in the third game of the four-game series with Chase Anderson on the mound. First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 pm.
