Mets fall in 18 innings

New York lost by a count of 4-3 in 18 innings Saturday night at Milwaukee as it was unable to hold on after taking a lead in the marathon game. The Mets scored once in the top of the 18th frame, but allowed two runs in the bottom half to end it with a loss. Jeff McNeil ended the contest 3-for-8 with an RBI in the defeat. Pete Alonso finished 2-for-7 with a solo home run in the ninth inning that tied the score and led to the historic length of the contest. Angel Hechavarria was 2-for-4 with a run. Chris Flexen took the loss in relief as he gave up two earned runs on two hits with one strikeout and four walks over 1 1/3 innings. Jason Vargas starts today for New York as he comes in with a 1-1 record, 5.75 ERA and 1.72 WHIP plus 15 strikeouts over 20 1/3 innings.

Braun carries Brewers with big night

Ryan Braun hit a two-run double in the bottom of the 18th inning for his last of six hits on the night to send host Milwaukee to a 4-3 victory in the longest game ever at Miller Park. Braun ended the night 6-for-8 with two doubles and the two RBIs. Mike Moustakas finished 1-for-7 with a double, a walk and an RBI. Ben Gamel was 1-for-6 with a walk and a run. Taylor Williams picked up the win in relief as he gave up one earned run on three hits with three strikeouts and no walks over four innings. Zach Davies will start today for the Brewers as he comes in with a 3-0 record, 1.38 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 21 strikeouts over 32 23 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 3-7 in their last 10 games overall. New York is 0-4 in its last four road games.

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 5-2 in Davies' last seven starts. Milwaukee is 9-4 in its last 13 Sunday games. 

Prediction:

Neither team is in good bullpen shape today for obvious reasons and Davis has the much better chance of going deep in the game. Vargas has been dreadful this season and his best days are long behind him. Look for the Brewers to get after him early and lead to another long day for New York, especially if Christian Yelich returns to the lineup after pinch-hitting last night.
