Braun hits 2 homers, Lohse pitches Brewers past Mets 7-0

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ryan Braun homered twice and made a marvelous catch, leading Kyle Lohse and the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-0 victory over the slumping New York Mets on Friday night.

Lohse (3-4) allowed two harmless hits in eight crisp innings. Gerardo Parra also homered and hit an RBI double for the last-place Brewers, who battered Bartolo Colon (6-2) to win their first road game under new manager Craig Counsell.

Aramis Ramirez had three hits in his return to the lineup, including an RBI double that put Milwaukee in front.

Lohse struck out eight, walked one and used the large dimensions in center field to his advantage. Michael Blazek completed a three-hitter that took only 2 hours, 18 minutes.

Back home after getting swept by the Chicago Cubs in four games at Wrigley Field, the NL East-leading Mets dropped their season-worst fifth straight.
