MILWAUKEE (AP) — Chris Young’s start was somewhat encouraging for the Mets. Despite the three home runs.

Ryan Braun hit two home runs and rookie pitcher Wily Peralta gave up two singles in eight innings, as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Mets 3-0. The reigning most valuable player now has a career-high and league-leading 40 homers, and 201 in his career. Milwaukee won for the 20th time in its last 26 games to remain 2{ games out of the second wild-card spot.

Young (4-8) threw 6 2-3 innings and allowed three runs and eight hits, as the Mets lost for the eighth time in nine games.

The flyball pitcher who rejoined the Mets in June following surgery on his right shoulder allowed his runs all on solo homers.

“He’s a fly ball pitcher. If you get enough of the ball here, it’s going to get out,” New York manager Terry Collins said. “But he pitched well. He kept us in the game. Two hits isn’t going to get us very far.”

Young is 2-2 in eight starts since a winless July. He has struck out 67 and walked 33 this season since coming back June 5.
