Conforto two-run shot lifts Mets over Brewers 3-2

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Steven Matz pitched seven sharp innings to win his sixth consecutive start, Michael Conforto hit a two-run homer and the New York Mets beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 on Friday night.
   After skipping a turn in the rotation last weekend because of a sore elbow, Matz (6-1) picked up right where he left off in his previous outing May 9 at Dodger Stadium. The rookie left-hander held the Brewers to three hits.
   Matz struck out eight and walked none as the Mets won for the second time in eight games.
   The only real hiccup for Matz (6-1) came when Chris Carter connected for his 13th home run of the season, a two-run shot in the first inning. After that, Matz retired 15 straight batters.
   Addison Reed tossed a perfect eighth and Jeurys Familia closed flawlessly for his 14th save in as many chances this season.
   With the Mets trailing 2-1, Asdrubal Cabrera singled to start the sixth and Conforto homered off Wily Peralta (2-5).
