Reynolds, Familia lead Mets late in 2-1 win over Brewers

Posted:


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Matt Reynolds drove home the go-ahead run in the 11th inning with a fielder's choice after a line drive up the middle hit off shortstop Jonathan Villar's glove, leading the New York Mets to a 2-1 victory on Friday night over the Milwaukee Brewers.
   

With the bases loaded, Reynolds hit a 1-0 slider from Blaine Boyer (1-1) on a line up the middle that glanced off Villar's glove. The deflection gave Asdrubal Cabrera enough time to dash home from third for a one-run lead.
   
Jeurys Familia held the Brewers hitless in the bottom of the 11th for his major league-leading 21st save in 21 opportunities. Jerry Blevins (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win.
   
Both teams squandered chances to end the game sooner. The late futility overshadowed a pitcher's duel between Milwaukee's Junior Guerra and resurgent Mets starter Matt Harvey, who struck out eight in six innings.
