NEW YORK, NY (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers have won four of their last five after beating the Mets in New York 4-2 Thursday night. The Crew scored all its runs in the second inning. Scooter Gennett capped off the rally with a two-run single. Johnny Hellweg had another rough outing. He gave up a run on two hits in four innings, but he hit two batters, threw a wild pitch, and walked four. Hellweg, the pitcher of the year in the Triple-"A" Pacific Coast League, only threw 37-of-80 pitches for strikes. He hit Mets' All-Star David Wright in the helmet. Wright left the game, and passed his concussion tests. Brewers' manager Ron Roenicke says Hellweg has a long way to go to get his control in check. In eight starts for Milwaukee this season, he walked 40 batters in 30 and two-thirds innings, with a 1-4 record and a 6.75 E-R-A. Alfredo Figaro got the win with two innings of scoreless relief. He's 3-3. Jim Henderson allowed a solo homer to Josh Satin in the ninth, but still picked up his 27th save. Dillon Gee went six innings and took the loss. He's now 0-3 lifetime against the Brewers. The Mets went 0 for 14 with runners in scoring position. Like Milwaukee, the Mets are playing out the string well below .500. The two teams will play again tonight at Citi Field. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo will face Mets' right-hander Carlos Torres.
