Brewers wild but winning, defeat Mets 4-2

Johnny Hellweg didn't help his cause or his BB/9 but the Brewers win anyway. Johnny Hellweg just didn't have it tonight. I know the box score says he only gave up one run but trust me he did not have it. There is a reason Alfredo Figaro was credited for the win and that reason is because Hellweg was lifted after 4 innings and 80 pitches only 37 of those strikes. He hit David...
