Mets overcome Cabrera's error to beat Brewers 5-4 in 12

Jay Bruce lined a game-ending single in the 12th inning, and NY rebounded to beat Milwaukee 5-4 on Tuesday night for its first three-game winning streak since May 3-6.

That set up a two out bases loaded situation for Santana, and while Domingo couldn't match his Sunday grand slam, he did draw a walk to force in the Brewers' second run. With that said, power-hitting first basemen seem to be less valuable than they once were.

Even more important than the win is the way they won, because a castoff like Josh Smoker, who was sent down to the minors a few weeks ago to work on his secondary pitches really came through for Collins with three scoreless innings.

Bruce's hit - his first in six at-bats - made a victor of left-hander Josh Smoker (1-2), who struck out four while throwing three innings for only the second time in 38 major league games.

The Brewers have now dropped 7 of their last 10 games but maintained their game and a half lead atop the NL Central after both the Cubs and Cardinals lost again. The only run he allowed came on a two-out double by Travis Shaw in the first, which could have been worse if not for a 6-4-3 double play.

Mets right-hander Tyler Pill, making his first major league start, left in line for the win. Brew Crew starter Zach Davies gave up a pair of runs over five frames with Carlos Torres allowing two more with Wily Peralta absorbing the loss with a 12th inning run scoring.

Milwaukee tied the game in the seventh on a bases-loaded walk followed by a misplayed pop-up by Asdrubal Cabrera that allowed two runs to score, but couldn't muster any other offense in their seventh loss of their last nine games.

"Come back with three runs, it was huge for (Gsellman) and for us", Rivera said.

Santana did not run initially and could only make it to third. Santana was stranded when pinch-hitter Jesus Aguilar struck out.

On a night with a Bogie-on-the-tarmac fog, Cabrera also had trouble settling under Orlando Arcia's popup in the sixth but made the catch. DeGrom is 4-0 in his last six starts. He was angry plate umpire Manny Gonzalez didn't call a 2-2 pitch at the knees to Reyes a strike in the fifth, then threw a fastball in the dirt.

The previous pitchers to fill Syndergaard's spot, left-hander Tommy Milone and right-hander Rafael Montero, combined to post a 10.61 ERA in five starts in May, which could explain why a dampened crowd of 24,457 gave Pill a warm ovation as he walked off the mound. Mets reliever Jerry Blevins appeared to have preserved a two-run lead over the Brewers.

Eric Thames singled in the first and tripled past Bruce in right field in the fifth. He went 0 for 3 with a walk and is hitless in his last 19 at-bats.

Salas, who turned 32 on Tuesday, lined a single to right in the sixth for his first big league hit. He had been 0 for 4 in eight seasons. Pill pitched two-thirds of an inning in relief in his major league debut Saturday against the Pirates.

So maybe there is hope for 2017 and the Mets may have something to play for as the calendar turns from May into June.
