NEW YORK (AP) – Dave Bush pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning and helped his own cause with an RBI single, Ryan Braun hit a two-run double and the Milwaukee Brewers held on for a 3-1 victory over the Mets to complete a doubleheader sweep tonight.
Prince Fielder’s RBI single and Carlos Gomez’s hustle in the eighth inning of the first game rallied the Brewers for an 8-7 win after they squandered a six-run lead.
Trevor Hoffman pitched the ninth inning of the second game for his first save since notching No. 600 on Sept. 7.
After New York tied a franchise record by using eight pitchers in a nine-inning game in the opener of the twi-night doubleheader, knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (11-9) gave up six hits in seven innings.
It would’ve been nice if Dickey had won one more game, but no one at the beginning of the season probably would’ve thought he would win 11 games. He was a pleasant surprise. Hopefully, he can do as well or better next season.
