Brosseau slam lifts Brewers 6-0, Mets set hit batter record

By ANDREW WAGNER Associated Press

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Pinch-hitter Mike Brosseau greeted Drew Smith with a grand slam in the pitcher's return from two months on the injured list, and the New York Mets squandered a chance to boost their NL East lead with a 6-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Willy Adames hit a go-ahead home run in the sixth against Taijuan Walker, and the Brewers closed within two games of Philadelphia for the third wild-card berth.

The Mets, already assured of at least a wild card, maintained a one-game NL East.

Three Mets were hit by pitches, raising their total to a record 106.
