Brewers beat Mets on Cuddyer’s misplay
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Gomez scored the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning when outfielder Michael Cuddyer misplayed a double off the wall, helping the Milwaukee Brewers beat the injury-riddled New York Mets 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Gomez had yet to reach third on Adam Lind's double down the left-field line off Sean Gilmartin when the ball took a high hop off the side wall on Cuddyer. The ball bounced just over Cuddyer's glove and trickled through his legs, allowing Gomez to score.
New York lost its sixth straight, falling to .500 (36-36) for the first time since it was 3-3 on April 12.
Will Smith (3-0) pitched 1 1-3 innings of scoreless relief before Francisco Rodriguez tossed a perfect ninth for his 14th save in 14 chances.
The Mets placed starting catcher Travis d'Arnaud on the disabled list before the game with a left elbow injury.
