Brewers Beat Mets 9-7 To Take Game, Series

Dave Doyle@dave_doyleCorrespondent IApril 13, 2008

The Brewers took the rubber game of the series in a poorly pitched game by both teams. Jorge Sosa took the loss for the Mets after entering the game in the fifth and pitching 1.2 innings and giving up two runs.

Both starting pitchers were terrible today! If there was a way to give Oliver Perez and Jeff Suppan both a loss, this would be the game to do it.

The Brewers turned an eye popping five double plays in the game. For a team with no defense, they were able to shut the Mets down with timely double plays.

David Wright hit his third homer in the game and Brian Schneider was three for five with three RBI’s. Schneider’s defense however, was questionable once again today. Although he didn’t have any passed balls or errors, he couldn’t keep the ball in his glove. I’m starting to think there may be something wrong with him, like a hand injury, that we don’t know about.

The Mets are off on Monday and the Nationals come to town on Tuesday after ending their nine game losing streak yesterday against Tom Glavine and the Braves.
