(Updated: ADDS that Peralta is tied for most wins in the majors in Para 3)
Brewers 5, Mets 2: Mark Reynolds homered and Wily Peralta notched his career-best 12th victory as host Milwaukee knocked off New York.
Ryan Braun, Khris Davis and Jonathan Lucroy added RBI hits as the Brewers won for the seventh time in 10 games. Curtis Granderson homered for the Mets, who are 4-5 on a 10-game road trip.
Peralta (12-6) gave up two runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings to tie for the major-league lead in victories and relievers Zach Duke and Will Smith each struck out three batters in an inning of relief. Francisco Rodriguez bounced back from Friday’s blown save to strike out two in the ninth and record his 30th save in 34 opportunities.
Jean Segura scored on a wild pitch by Jonathon Niese (5-6) for Milwaukee’s first run in a three-run fifth and Lucroy hit a tying double later in the inning and scored on Braun’s single to right. Reynolds launched a booming shot to center off Carlos Torres with two outs in sixth to give the Brewers a 4-2 edge and Davis added a run-scoring double in the eighth.
Lucas Duda’s RBI single in the third got New York on the board and the lead reached 2-0 when Granderson homered to lead off the fifth. Niese allowed three runs and five hits in five innings.
