The Brewers continue their series at New York on Wednesday.  The game starts at 6:10 p.m. Wisconsin time.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Taylor Teagarden hit a grand slam in his Mets debut, Daniel Murphy had a two-run shot and New York beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 Tuesday night to snap a six-game skid.

Called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday to replace demoted catcher Travis d'Arnaud, Teagarden connected for his second career slam after Marco Estrada walked the bases loaded. The 30-year-old Teagarden had struck out in his first two at-bats.

Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-0) pitched six effective innings and Murphy homered off Estrada in the third. Before the game, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said manager Terry Collins' job is secure after the team returned from a 4-7 road trip a season-worst seven games under .500.
