Lucroy, Gallardo lead Brewers past Mets, 7-5


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy homered and Yovani Gallardo scattered six hits over six innings while adding two hits and a pair of runs scored to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-5 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday night.

Gallardo (7-8) allowed four earned runs, striking out six and walking three. In his previous outing Monday against Washington, Gallardo gave up nine hits and eight earned runs in three innings.

Francisco Rodriguez recorded his eighth save of the season and 302nd of his career.

Gallardo had a single and a double, scoring both times he reached base. He also had a key sacrifice bunt.

The Brewers jumped on Mets starter Shaun Marcum (1-10) for a run in the first inning. Lucroy's two-out single scored Norichika Aoki, who led off the game with an infield hit.
