New York-Milwaukee: Mets Defeat Brew Crew Behind Nelson Figueroa

Dave DoyleCorrespondent IApril 12, 2008

Nelson Figueroa made his first start for the Mets this season, and made it an impressive one. He went six strong innings, giving up two runs, two hits, and two walks with six strikeouts for the win.

The bullpen took over for Figueroa and did a great job for the final three innings. Joe Smith, Aaron Heilman, and Billy Wagner shut the Brewers down without giving up a hit.

The offense, as usual, was powered by Angel Pagan. He continued his hot hitting, going two for four with another RBI, raising his season average to .387.

There is some concern that Jose Reyes left the game with a tight hamstring. Marlon Anderson came in to play second, and Damion Easley moved to shortstop, replacing Reyes.
