GAME 1 RECAP: Mets Score Two to Top Brewers, Win 2-1


The Mets couldn’t touch starter Shaun Marcum, but they did do some damage about the ‘pen. Jose Reyes drove-in two RBI on a triple–and they were the only runs the Mets needed to defeat the Brewers. Former cheesehead Chris Capuano pitched a fab game, hurling six innings of six-hit, one earned-run ball. He also walked two and struck-out five batters. The win puts the Mets just two games below the .500 mark.

  • Chris Capuano pitched six innings, giving-up six hits, one earned-run, two walks, while striking-out five. It was his fourth win of 2011.
  • The Mets bullpen (Pedro Beato, Jason Isringhausen, and Francisco Rodriguez) combined for three scoreless innings.
  • Francisco Rodriguez recorded his seventeenth save. He also struck-out two batters in one inning of work.
  • Jose Reyes was the offensive hero for the Mets, driving-in two RBI off a triple. It was his eleventh triple of the season.
