National League Game Summary - New York at Milwaukee|
(Sunday, July 27)
Final Score: New York 2, Milwaukee 0
Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Lucas Duda capped his incredible series
with a two-run homer on Sunday and Jacob deGrom pitched 6 1/3 scoreless
innings in the New York Mets' 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Duda's recent power surge helped the Mets leave Milwaukee with a series split
and finish a 10-game road trip with a 5-5 mark. He homered three times in four
games against the Brewers and drove in six runs.
"He's had a tremendous road trip," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "You
certainly can't say enough about the way he's hit the ball."
DeGrom, meanwhile, has been one of the best pitchers in the majors this month
and Sunday was no different. The rookie right-hander surrendered just four
hits with a pair of walks.
DeGrom (5-5) has won his last four starts, yielding just two runs with 30
strikeouts during that stretch.
Chris Young doubled twice for the Mets, doing so for the second straight game.
Jimmy Nelson (1-2) pitched well for the Brewers despite the loss, going seven
innings of two-run ball with six strikeouts. Nelson also picked up his first
"I was alright, I kept us in it," Nelson said. "I made pitches when I needed
to, except for the one to Duda. I just got too much of the plate and he did
what he was supposed to with it."
Duda broke a scoreless draw in the sixth inning. Daniel Murphy led off the
frame with a double to center and two batters later, Duda belted a no-doubter
to the second deck in right.
Singles by Khris Davis and Jean Segura in the seventh chased deGrom from the
game. Vic Black came on and induced consecutive pop-ups to pinch-hitters to
keep the shutout intact.
Jeurys Familia pitched a 1-2-3 eighth and Jenrry Mejia picked up his second
save of the series. Mejia allowed a pair of singles in the ninth, but Lyle
Overbay grounded to second for the final out.
Duda has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games ... Mejia's save was his 15th
of the year ... The Mets have won four of six overall ... New York finished 1-
for-11 with runners in scoring position ... Davis and Segura had two hits
apiece for Milwaukee.
