Wasting away early scoring opportunities on Tuesday night came back to haunt the Milwaukee Brewers in their 7-2 loss to the New York Mets at Citi Field.
The Brewers had Mets starting pitcher David Peterson in trouble in the first three innings, but could not score, even with the bases loaded and one out in the first inning.
Peterson settled down and did not allow a run in six innings of work. Brewer starter Julio Teheran started strong again but then gave up seven runs from the fourth through the sixth inning, including two home runs to Brandon Nimmo.
The Brewers managed to finally score in the eighth inning on a two-run single by Brian Anderson for Milwaukee’s only two runs.
Game three of the four-game series will be at 6:10 p.m. Wednesday with Wade Miley (5-2) going for the Brewers and Kodai Senga (6-5) pitching for the Mets.
