Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Ryan Braun hit two homers, Wily Peralta
pitched eight shutout innings, and John Axford closed it out in the ninth as
the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the New York Mets 3-0 to take the rubber match
of a three-game set.
Braun's second homer was his 40th of the season, marking the first time in his
career that he has reached the plateau.
The Brewers won for the 20th time in their last 26 games and will trail either
the St. Louis Cardinals or the Los Angeles Dodgers by 2 1/2 games, depending
on the winner of their matchup later today.
