Mets Bombed by Brew Crew

AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) _ Prince Fielder hit a pair of RBI singles and then confronted Mets reliever Tim Byrdak after an inside pitch, and the streaking Milwaukee Brewers waited out a rain delay of nearly three hours before beating the lost-at-home New York Mets 6-1 Friday night.

Shaun Marcum pitched the Brewers to their 20th win in 23 games, giving them a season-high 71/2-game lead in the NL Central. They closed out this testy victory at 12:51 a.m.

The Mets, meanwhile, set a most dubious record. They became the first team in major league history to lose the opening game in their first 10 homestands of a season, STATS LLC said.
