Rapid Reaction: Gsellman Struggles As Mets Fall To Brewers 11-4

The Mets dropped the second game of this three game set with the Brewers 11-4 Saturday night in Milwaukee.

Pitching

Robert Gsellman made the start for the Mets and he struggled again. Gsellman lasted only four innings and allowed six runs, five earned, on nine hits, walked three and struck out three.

Hansel Robles was inserted into the game in a mess, with the bases loaded and no men out. He allowed all four inherited runners to score, and was charged with four earned runs of his own.

Paul Sewald was solid in two innings of work, as he allowed a run on three hits and struck out three.

Rafael Montero tossed a perfect inning in relief, and struck out one.

Offense

Kevin Plawecki got the start behind the plate and reached base twice and drove in a pair of runs.

Neil Walker reached base twice as well, including his second home run of the series and his fourth of the season.

T.J. Rivera made another start at third base and reached base again, he is hitting .299 on the year.

Michael Conforto and Juan Lagares both lined doubles on the night. The double was Conforto’s first of two hits on the night.

The Mets went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position on the night.

Jose Reyes played an inning in center field and T.J. Rivera played two innings in left field, the first big league exposure for each of them in the outfield.

Asdrubal Cabrera left the game in the seventh inning after looking like the thumb on his left hand was in pain yet again.

Up Next

The Mets look to salvage the series and avoid the sweep as Jacob deGrom takes the mound tomorrow afternoon at 2:10 PM at Miller Park.
