Manny Pina leads the Brewers comeback charge over the Mets


Manny Pina hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, capping the Milwaukee Brewers' comeback from a six-run deficit for an 11-9 win Sunday over the New York Mets.

Pina spoke to his mother in Venezuela by phone after the game. "I don't think it went there, I think it was a slider right out over the middle of the plate".

The wild rally was the culmination of a three-game sweep for the Brewers (21-17) who outscored the Mets 29-17 in the series. We're not seeing that good sinker, we're not seeing that good command of those secondary pitches.

Fernando Salas, who recently served as a mop-up man, allowed Thames to score to slice the lead to 8-6, and two runners reached against him with one out in the eighth in a 9-6 game. Rivera to an 0-2 count with two outs, Feliz left a fastball up that Rivera poked into right field to drive in a run.

"I was concerned that any time those blood clots get in certain places, they can cut off the blood supply and then, all of a sudden, the muscles don't fire like they once did", Collins said.

Brewers: Reliever Corey Knebel, who threw 41 pitches in 1 1/3 innings on Thursday against Boston, remained unavailable to pitch.


"I felt like there were some calls missed, specifically on our side, so I made a decision to let him know", Walker said, adding he believed the Mets pitchers faced a small strike zone. "We just kind of chipped away". They answered back but the eighth inning, that was absolutely incredible. Starter Wily Peralta was taken out of the game in the fifth inning, after allowing seven hits and seven runs.

"The way he felt today, probably not tomorrow", manager Terry Collins said, when asked of when Cabrera can return. "I thought he burned himself out getting out of the fifth". Rivera made it over to third on a "triple" after Domingo Santana had trouble stopping the ball in right field (he took a bad route and the ball rolled to the wall), but Feliz got out of the inning without further damage.

After the fifth the Mets offense was shut down, managing only three hits in four innings against the Brewers bullpen. The Rockies boosted their lead back to 1½ games in the NL West. Neil Walker continues to swing a hot bat for NY, however, going 5-for-8 this weekend while clubbing a solo home run in each of the first two games of this series to lift his May batting average to.333 after hitting.195 last month.

NOTES: The Brewers moved to four games over.500 for the first time since September 24 of that same season.

It was the fourth straight loss for the Mets (16-20). Brewers 3B Travis Shaw went 1-for-3 with an RBI but left the game after the sixth inning with a right index finger injury. The Mets haven't been swept by the Brewers since August 19-20, 2011 and haven't been swept in Milwaukee since the 2001 season.
