The Mets will look to avoid being swept in Milwaukee on Sunday with Jason Vargas taking the mound for the 2:10 p.m. first pitch. 

Mets notes

It's been quite the up-and-down season for Brandon Nimmo. He's hitless in his last six games and is currently in the midst of an 0-for-22 skid since April 28, but is batting third Sunday. ... The Mets have scored three or fewer runs in their last four games and they've scored 26 runs over their last 10. The team is hitting .212 during that stretch. ... Pete Alonso hit his 10th homer Saturday tie up the game at 2 in the ninth. Eight of his homers have come in the seventh inning or later, which leads the Major Leagues. Alonso leads all rookies in home runs, RBI (27) and OPS (.994). ... Even against a right-handed pitcher, the Mets have Robinson Cano, Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil (all lefties) on the bench after Saturday night's 18-inning marathon loss.

The Mets head to the Midwest to face the Brewers for a three-game series at Miller Park on Friday at 8:10 p.m. on SNY.

Mets notes

The Mets begin a six-game road trip tonight, starting in Milwaukee and ending in San Diego. ...New York is 4-6 against the NL Central so far this season. ...Mets' starters have posted a 0.42 ERA over the last three games. ...Michael Conforto has reached base safely in 11 straight games. He is also tied for second in the league with 23 walks. ...Noah Syndergaard's homer on Thursday had a 105.8 mph exit velocity, which was the hardest-hit homer by a pitcher this season.

A fan at Citi Field helped Mets first baseman Pete Alonso record a first-inning triple in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Brewers.

Alonso lined a pitch to deep left field. As Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun leapt on the warning track, a fan reached below, spilling his beer over Braun after the ball went passed Braun's outstretched glove and caromed off the wall.

"It's kind of funny I guess," Alonso told reporters of the play. "We got some pretty loyal fans, which is awesome. That's a tough situation on [Braun]. It's kind of a strange play altogether."

The Mets avoided the sweep -- and going under .500 -- by defeating the Brewers, 5-2, at Citi Field on Sunday. >> Box score 

Five things to know about Sunday's game...

1) Steven Matz was brilliant for six-plus innings and only faltered at the end of his outing. He'd delivered six scoreless frames before Mike Moustakas took him deep to right-center field for a two-out, two-run blast that evened the game at 2. The lefty struck out four and didn't issue a walk. He now sports a 3.68 ERA, but aside from his debacle in Philadelphia, Matz has yielded six earned runs across his other five starts (29 1/3 innings).

Steven Matz and the Mets (13-13, 1.5 games behind Phillies in NL East) will look to salvage the final game of their three-game set Sunday at Citi Field against the Brewers (15-13, 2 games behind Cardinals in NL Central) at 1:10 p.m.

Mets notes

With his ninth home run of the season, rookie Pete Alonso has tied the Mets' home-run record for most in April. ... Jeff McNeil collected his 12th multi-hit game of the year Saturday. ... Brandon Nimmo is batting .333 with three home runs, seven RBI, four doubles, seven walks and a 1.012 OPS over his last 16 games. ... Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup for the first time this season.

Pete Alonso homered in the seventh inning to make things interesting but the Mets could not overcome an early 5-1 deficit as they fall to the Brewers, 8-6, Saturday at Citi Field.  >> Box score

Five things to know about Saturday's game...

1) Noah Syndergaard's start to the season has been less than ideal and those struggles continued on Saturday. The right-hander allowed five runs on 10 hits and three walks over five innings. He has now allowed at least four earned runs in five of his six starts this season and has not made it past the fifth inning in his last three.

Noah Syndergaard is staying calm. 

The Mets right-hander had another rough outing on Saturday, allowing five runs on 10 hits and three walks in just five innings in an 8-6 loss to the Brewers at Citi Field. 

It was his third straight outing he failed to pitch beyond the fifth inning and fifth time in his first six starts this year where he has allowed at least four runs. His ERA now stands at 6.35.

Mets notes

Jacob deGrom was roughed up again in the 10-2 loss on Friday night. He allowed five runs on five hits and three walks over four innings. ...The Mets are 4-6 in their last 10 games. ...Robinson Cano tied his career-high with hits in six straight at-bats from April 23-April 26.

Jacob deGrom was back on the mound for the Mets on Friday since his short stint on the IL with elbow soreness, but the struggles continued for the right-hander. 

After a two-hour, 42-minute rain delay, deGrom lasted just four innings, allowing five runs on five hits while striking out seven but was pulled with the Mets trailing 5-1. He was uncharacteriscally wild, too, walking three batters and hitting two more. 

DeGrom began to run into trouble in the second inning when he got into a bases-loaded, one-out jam but was able to escape the inning unscathed by striking out Chase Anderson and Lorenzo Cain to end the inning.

The Mets (13-11, first place in NL East) begin a 10-game homestand by taking on the Brewers (13-13, fourth in NL Central) at Citi Field on Friday to kick off a three-game series. The start of the game, which was set to start at 7:10 p.m. on SNY, was delayed and first pitch is now scheduled for 9:50 p.m.

Mets notes

After a slow start to the season, Robinson Cano is finding his groove. Over his last 10 games, he's batting .381 with five doubles, five RBIs, a homer and four runs scored with a .994 OPS. ... Amed Rosario can increase his hitting streak to 10 with a knock Friday. The streak is already at a career-high nine games. ... With eight home runs already, Pete Alonso can tie the Mets' record for homers in April (nine) with another long ball. Neil Walker was the most recent Met to club eight in the first month of the season (2016). ... Mets starters entered last series against the Phillies with a 5.64 staff ERA but lowered that mark to 4.97 after their trio of starters allowed two earned runs over 17 2/3 innings.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman is still working hard to ship Sonny Gray out of the Bronx, and there are reportedly a couple teams interested in a trade.

Milwaukee and San Diego have spoken to the Yankees about acquiring Gray, a source confirmed to MLB Network's Jon Morosi, joining a long list of teams that have inquired about the 29-year-old starter. 

SNY's Andy Martino has noted that Cashman is waiting for "the right deal," as at least 11 teams have reportedly checked in with him. Cashman tendered Gray a contract this past Friday, but the pitcher is expected to be wearing another uniform before the 2019 season.

Mets RHP Zack Wheeler allowed four runs, six hits and two walks in six innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, settling down after giving up a three-run home run in the third inning.

Wheeler remained winless since April 29 after New York's bullpen blew a 6-4 lead but threw six complete innings for the fourth time in his last five outings. He went 0-3 with a 6.43 ERA in five starts in May, as the Mets have lost all five outings.

Since his last win April 29, Wheeler is 0-3 with a 6.43 ERA. And since April 24, he is 1-3 with a 6.32 ERA. And since their 11-1 start, the Mets have gone 14-23. In May, they've lost 15 of 22 games.

The Mets bullpen blew a 6-4 lead by allowing four runs in the seventh inning in Sunday's 8-7 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Relievers Robert Gsellman, Jerry Blevins and Paul Sewald surrendered four runs, four hits and a walk in one inning after Zack Wheeler settled down after a three-run third inning.

Gsellman retired two of the first three batters he faced before giving up a two-out walk to Jesus Aguilar. Manager Mickey Callaway opted to bring in Blevins, who had not given up a run in his last 11 appearances entering Sunday, to face Travis Shaw. A lefty specialist, left-handed hitters were 7-for-26 off Blevins entering Sunday. (By contrast, right-handed hitters were 1-for-10.)

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard tossed 101 pitches and allowed one unearned run, while striking out 11 batters in 5 1/3 innings, during Sunday's 3-2 win against the Brewers at Citi Field.

"I feel like this is finally a step in the right direction," Syndergaard told reporters after the game. "I finally got a glimpse of what I'm capable of. I felt like my first three starts were not up to par. I feel like this is close to dominance."

That's an understatement. Sunday, he looked smooth and dominant... like a young Doc Gooden

Despite starting for only the fourth time this season, Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo continued his hot start by going 3-for-5 with a home run and a triple in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Citi Field.

"He played a great game,'' Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters after the game.

Nimmo, starting for the first time since April 4, singled and scored in the first inning, tripled in the fourth and hit a game-tying home run to lead off the sixth inning as the Mets improved to 12-2, their best start in franchise history.

"You have to just try and help out the team however you can,'' said Nimmo, who has a .400/.571/.800 batting line in 15 at-bats this season.

Mets infielder Wilmer Flores continued his solid hitting against right-handed pitching by going 3-for-4 in Monday's 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Citi Field.

Flores singled in each of his three at-bats against Brewers RHP Matt Garza, scoring on Robert Gsellman's fifth-inning sac fly that gave New York a 2-1 lead.

Since starting the season 1-for-22 against right-handed pitchers, Flores is hitting .380 with one home run and 11 RBIs against right-handers in May. It's a stark contrast from 2016, when he had a .232/.289/.353 batting line against right-handers and a .340/.383/.710 line against left-handed pitchers.

But manager Terry Collins has noticed that Flores is seeing the ball better and hitting the ball to all parts of the field. He singled to right-center field in the second inning, left field in the fifth inning and right field in the sixth inning.

New York, which entered Sunday with the highest team ERA in the majors, blew a 7-1 lead and gave up five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, including Manny Pina's go-ahead three-run home run off Addison Reed that turned a 9-8 Mets lead into a two-run deficit.

"It's frustrating, but that's baseball," Reed said, according to the New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert. "Stuff is going to happen. Gone through a lot worse times than this."

New York Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard struck out 11 batters while throwing a season-high 109 pitches in New York's 3-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday at Citi Field.

Syndergaard (5-2) won his third straight start and became the fourth pitcher in MLB history to throw at least seven innings, throw at least 10 strikeouts and not allow an earned run or a walk in consecutive starts.

"It's huge anytime we have Noah on the mound, we know we have a pretty good shot to win," David Wright said, "and he didn't disappoint."
