Har­vey hit hard; Mets’ run ends at 9

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK — Chase An­der­son breezed into the sev­enth in­ning, Jonathan Vil­lar sliced a three­run homer in­side the foul pole and the Brew­ers stopped the Mets’ nine-game win­ning streak 5-1 on Satur­day night.

Jett Bandy also went deep against Matt Har­vey as the Brew­ers fi­nally cooled off the Mets and im­proved to 6-2 away from home. Slump­ing short­stop Or­lando Ar­cia came off the bench and home­red in the ninth.

About the only bit of bad news for the banged-up Brew­ers was an­other in­jury: Ryan Braun was re­moved in the fifth with back tight­ness.

The only of­fense the Mets (11-2) could muster came on a bloop RBI sin­gle by Yoe­nis Ce­s­pedes off An­der­son (1-1), who al­lowed just two hits in 61⁄3 in­nings. The first was Amed Rosario’s sin­gle up the mid­dle on an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the fifth.

Jeremy Jef­fress and Josh Hader fin­ished the three-hit­ter. Hader re­tired all six bat­ters he faced, strik­ing out the first five, for his first ma­jor-league save.

Har­vey (0-1) gave up a lead­off dou­ble to Travis Shaw in the second and walked Domingo Santana. One out later, Vil­lar curled an op­po­site-field drive just in­side the left-field foul pole. Bandy home­red to left in the fourth.

Har­vey was charged with four runs on eight hits in five in­nings. He threw 95 pitches and has gone 11 con­sec­u­tive starts with­out get­ting an out in the sixth, the long­est cur­rent streak in the ma­jors.

The Mets will try to start a new streak Sun­day when they send out Noah Syn­der­gaard (2-0, 3.94). He has struck out 16 and walked one in 13 in­nings this sea­son. Syn­der­gaard will face Jhoulys Chacin (0-1, 6.59).
