7,558: Mets lose on sloppy sort-of slam

Another creative loss

David Wright kicked off the night with a two-run homer, but the Milwaukee Brewers got the error-filled equivalent of a grand slam Monday night to top the Mets 6-3.

With the bases loaded in the fourth, Ryan Braun doubled off the left field wall to score Mike Burns and Cory Hart, and catcher Omir Santos mishandled Alex Cora’s throw to home to let J.J. Hardy score. Santana, backing up Santos, grabbed the ball and should have had Braun picked off third, but he threw the ball way over Wright’s head to make it a four-run play.

Santana lost his no-hitter in the bottom of the first when Ryan Braun singled to left, making it 7,558 New York Mets games without a no-no.

Want to hear a positive? Fernando Martinez got his first career homer in the ninth.
