Wright swings away, gives Mets 5-4 comeback win over Brewers
David Wright singled home the winning run on a 3-0 pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the New York Mets rallied past the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 on Saturday.
Curtis Granderson hit his latest leadoff homer for the Mets, and Yoenis Cespedes tied the score in the sixth with a two-run shot that chased rookie starter Zach Davies.
That got Jacob deGrom off the hook after the right-hander left trailing 4-1. The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year, winless in four starts since winning his first three, struck out seven and walked three while throwing 100 pitches in five innings.
Jeurys Familia (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win. Wright singled off Michael Blazek (1-1) for his first game-ending hit since July 5, 2012.
Ramon Flores hit his first major league homer and knocked in three runs for Milwaukee.
