Chris Capuano was victorious in his return to Milwaukee tonight. He did a great job again and, this time, got just enough run support to get a win. He went 6 innings allowing only a Prince Fielder solo shot to center field. The bullpen cleaned up with three perfect innings. Pedro Beato, Jason Isringhausen, and K-Rod didn’t allow a batter to reach base after taking over for Capuano. It was exactly how the Mets would have drawn it up.
The Mets didn’t do a lot on offense. They only had 5 hits and 5 walks in the game. But Jose Reyes came through with a 2-run triple in the seventh inning. He may have scored on an infield play but got thrown out at the plate and didn’t slide.
It’s a good start to the three game series in Milwaukee against a hot Brewers team.
