The New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers are two teams that have made waves within Major League Baseball. Both sides are currently fighting to secure playoff spots in the National League with plenty of talent on their respective rosters, and will face each other on June 27th at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens for the second game of a three-game series between them.
This series’ opening match was extremely tight and decided by a single swing. In the 4th inning, Fancisco Lindor’s sacrifice fly gave the game its first run. 2 innings afterwards, Joey Weimer smashed a two-run homer to center field, giving the Brewers their reply. The final score was 2-1 in favor of the Brewers.
