Mets Homer Twice In 7-3 Win Over Brewers

His line ends with six innings pitched, two runs allowed on six hits, three runs, while striking out five batters.
Josh Edgin and Jon Rauch combine for a scoreless seventh. Bobby Parnell handled the eighth with two hits allowed, but no runs against him. Ramon Ramirez was given the ninth and allowed an RBI triple.
