NEW YORK (AP) - Scooter Gennett capped a four-run second inning with a two-run single and the Milwaukee Brewers overcame some wild pitching Thursday night that included the beaning of David Wright for a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets.
Wright was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Johnny Hellweg with two outs in the third inning. The All-Star third baseman went down to his hands and knees but he was able to walk off the field unassisted. The Mets said he was removed as a precaution.
Hellweg hit Lucas Duda with the next pitch - in the back of the leg - and then loaded the bases with a four-pitch walk. But the Mets, who entered with a home record worse than all in the National League except the Cubs (31-50), could not take advantage.
Coming off a road trip in which they won five of six, the Mets were 0 for 14 with runners in scoring position in dropping to 32-46 at Citi Field.
