MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun hit a three-run double and scored on Johan Santana's throwing error, sending the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-3 victory over the Mets on Tuesday night that extended New York's losing streak to a season-high five games.

Prince Fielder added a 452-foot solo homer for the NL Central leaders, who have won four of five and provided a fitting end to New York's worst month in nearly six years.

The Mets finished June with a 9-18 mark and head into July still missing injured stars Carlos Beltran (knee), Jose Reyes (calf, hamstring) and Carlos Delgado (hip).
