NEW YORK, NY (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers ended their season by blowing an eighth-inning lead on Sunday, losing to the Mets in New York 3-2. The Crew was up 2-1 when Jonathan Lucroy made a throwing error on a bunt by Juan Centano, and Juan Lagares tied the game by scoring all the way from first. The Mets then had runners at the corners when Eric Young Junior hit a slow-rolling groundout to first that scored the game-winner. Brandon Kintzler took the loss and fell to 3-3. It ruined another strong performance by Milwaukee starter Marco Estrada. He struck out eight in seven innings, giving up a run on two hits. Estrada went 3-0 in his final nine starts with a 2.15 E-R-A. He went 7-4 for the year, and he's up for salary arbitration this winter. Vic Black got the win with a scoreless inning of relief. The Brewers scored both their runs in the fourth inning with the help of a questionable call. Replays showed that Sean Halton grounded into an inning-ending double play -- but he was called safe at first instead of out, which scored the first run. Logan Schafer then hit an R-B-I single. The Brewers won 12 of their last 17, but they ended up fourth in the National League Central at 74-88.
