Mets Bullpen Suffers Mother’s Day Meltdown; Get Swept by Brewers

From a Mother’s Day laugher to a loss, the New York Mets saw a six-run lead evaporate as Jacob deGrom and the Mets bullpen were rocked 11-9 by the Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee on Sunday.

deGrom looked pretty solid through five-innings and was pitching to a 7-1 lead before allowing a Keon Broxton two-run homer in the sixth. He was pulled after a lead-off single in the seventh and left with a runner on and an 8-3 lead. It was disaster for the Mets’ bullpen from there.

Jerry Blevins, Fernando Salas, Josh Edgin and Addison Reed combined to allow seven earned runs over two-innings of work. It was capped by Milwaukee catcher Manny Pina’s three-blast in the eighth that put the Brewers ahead for good.

Reed (0-2) suffered the loss and the blown save – in his first chance to return to the closer’s roll following the diagnosis of an arterial clot in the shoulder of Jeurys Familia.

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.

If there’s a silver lining it’s that Michael Conforto and Neil Walker each had three-hits and three-RBIs. Jose Reyes and T.J. Rivera each chipped in two hits and a run scored.

New York (16-20) opens a three-game series in Arizona on Monday night (9:40 ET).
