Brewers 10, Mets 6: In his first three starts, Fernando Nieve allowed 10 hits and three runs in 18 2/3 innings. Start No. 4 didn't go quite as well as he allowed three runs on 11 hits in 3 1/3 innings. The Mets were able to close a 3-0 gap to 3-2, but a Casey McGhee grand slam off Brian Stokes blew the game wide open. Down by seven in the ninth, the Mets tried to rally behind a David Wright RBI double and a Gary Sheffield homer, but Brian Schneider hit into a game-ending double play. The Mets sit below .500 for the first time since May 5, but they are only three games behind Phillies. The National League may just be bad enough for the Mets to stay in it.
