NEW YORK (AP) _ Carlos Gomez homered and had four hits, including a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning that sent the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday.

Yuniesky Betancourt drove in two runs to help the Brewers (74-87) win their fourth straight as they put together a strong finish to a disappointing season. Milwaukee has won the first three in a four-game set at Citi Field– all by the same score– to give the club five victories in its final seven series.

Despite their punchless finish, the Mets are poised to retain manager Terry Collins.

Three people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Collins is close to an agreement to return. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been finalized and no announcement had been made. Collins’ current contract expires after this season, his third in charge of the Mets.
