The 19-17 Milwaukee Brewers have now won four of their last five, after a series-opening 7-4 triumph Friday night against the Mets, a game in which Milwaukee hit four HRs to pull even with Washington for the major-league lead (55). The Mets have now lost two straight, falling to 16-18. Both the Brewers and the Mets will have new closers Saturday when they play Game 2 of a three-game set at Miller Park. New York placed right-hander Jeureys Familia on the disabled list Friday after he underwent surgery to remove a blood clot in his rough shoulder, while Milwaukee pulled Neftali Feliz from his ninth-inning duties after another rocky outing a day earlier. Feliz was signed over the winter to handle the ninth inning but was 0-4 with a 6.19 ERA in 18 appearances!

The pitching matchup features Robert Gsellman (2-2, 6.54 ERA) for the Mets and Zach Davies (3-2, 5.60 ERA) for the Brewers. Gsellman has lasted more than five innings just once in six starts this season, although he has won each of his last two outings. Gsellman has squared off against both the Marlins and Atlanta three times this year but has yet to face Milwaukee in his brief career. Davies has won three straight decisions, including an outing at Pittsburgh on Sunday in which he allowed two runs and recorded a season-high seven strikeouts over 5.2 innings. Davies has made two starts against New York in his career, going 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA (Brewers are 1-1)

Davies seems like the more reliable starter at the moment, having gone 3-0 with a 3.43 ERA in his last four starts (team is 4-0). Meanwhile New York’s starting staff is dealing with injuries plus off-the-field issues and Gsellman hardly looks like a savior with that 6.54 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and opponents .316 BAA. Take Milwaukee.
Good luck…Larry
