David Peterson, bullpen hesitation, Mets blown by Brewers


NEW YORK – Corbin Burnes rebounded from his two shortest outings of the season, Willy Adames had two of his three hits in a seven-run fifth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers routed the New York Mets 10-2 Wednesday night for their second victory in 11 games.

Milwaukee’s big night gave manager Craig Counsell his 564th victory with the Brewers, breaking the franchise record. Counsell, the National League’s longest-serving coach, passed Phil Garner, who coached 1,180 games for the team from 1992 to 1999.

Counsell was doused with beer by his players and conducted his post-game interview with his hair still drenched. He also received a gift from Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, as well as video messages from retired Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, Milwaukee Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer and Golden State Warriors coach Steve. Kerr.

“It’s humbling, for sure,” Counsell said. “What I said to the players, I feel a lot of gratitude for everything they’ve contributed. They do the heavy lifting and it was fun to watch a great era of Brewer baseball.”

Counsell is 564-508 since taking over from Ron Roenicke on May 4, 2015, and the Wisconsin native is the third-longest-serving starting coach in the majors behind Cleveland’s Terry Francona and Tampa’s Kevin Cash. Bay.

“He’s awesome,” Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich said. “He grew up here, he played here and now he’s the winningest manager in Brewers history. There’s a lot to that.”

New York’s nine-game home win streak has come to an end. The Mets had gone 30 innings at Citi Field without allowing a run.

Burnes (4-4) allowed two runs in six innings. He struck out eight and walked none.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen him really up close,” Mets manager Buck Showalter said. “A reminder of why he’s one of the best, if not the best, pitchers in the National League. Gotta see him up close.”

Burnes came in with a 6.75 ERA in his previous two outings and had allowed eight runs in eight innings in losses to San Diego and Philadelphia. But the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner has remained in control throughout. He had five hits, including Jeff McNeil’s home run in fourth and RBI’s single in sixth.

“I was able to fill the area in a bit more,” Burnes said. “We still had some deep counts. At first they were trying to smack balls, put balls in play and try to kill me alone, but we kind of managed to weigh in and get some of those swings and misses.”

Burnes stoked Francisco Lindor twice and retired RBI NL leader Pete Alonso all three times, getting the slugger on a pair of foul popups before pulling him out in the sixth.

Milwaukee scored twice in the first, its first multi-run opener since May 26 at St. Louis. Then the Brewers poured it in the fifth against David Peterson (3-1) and relievers Jake Reed and Trevor Williams.

Adames doubled in the first and scored on a two-run single from Luis Urías. Adames then started Milwaukee’s biggest inning of the season with a single and scored on a goal-laden walk to Victor Caratini after reaching second on an errant pitch from Reed.

The plummeting Adames also hit a two-run single to give the Brewers a 9-1 lead. Between his two hits in the fifth, Lorenzo Cain hit an infield single and slugger Jace Peterson hit a two-run double. Andrew McCutchen capped the big inning with an RBI single.

“There’s a lot of good at bats tonight this inning,” Adames said.

Adames had his second three-hit game of the season. He’s gone 3 for 24 since returning last week from a sprained left ankle.

Peterson allowed four runs and six hits over four innings.
