Greinke, Ishikawa lead Brewers over Mets, 8-0



 NEW YORK (AP) -- Zack Greinke overcame his road woes and ran his scoreless streak to 15 innings, Travis Ishikawa homered twice and drove in a career-high five runs, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Mets 8-0 Tuesday night for a split of the two-game series.

   Greinke (4-1) pitched five-hit ball for seven dominant innings. He pitched eight innings in his start last Wednesday but Milwaukee's bullpen was beaten by the Reds.

   Ishikawa led off the fifth with his third homer of the year and connected for a three-run drive in the sixth, both home runs coming on the first pitch of the at-bat against Dillon Gee (2-3).
