Zach Davies strong for Brewers in 5-3 win over Collins-less Mets
MILWAUKEE — Zach Davies tossed six-plus strong innings of three-hit ball before the Milwaukee Brewers held on for a 5-3 win on Sunday, June 12th over the mistake-prone New York Mets, who played without ill manager Terry Collins.
He was seen by a trainer and Brewers team doctor after feeling sick before the game. Assistant general manager John Ricco said Collins was being taken to a hospital for precautionary tests.
Collins missed his team’s late comeback attempt from an early 5-0 deficit. The Mets had the potential go-ahead run up with two on and two outs in the eighth, but Ryan Braun made a diving catch of Wilmer Flores’ sinking liner in left to end the inning.
New York couldn’t overcome three errors, including throwing miscues during run-scoring innings for the Brewers in second and fifth.
Davies (5-3) struck out seven and retired 17 in a row at one point.
