NEW YORK (AP) - Jonathan Lucroy had three hits and Wily Peralta pitched into the seventh inning to send the Milwaukee Brewers past the slumping New York Mets 3-1 Wednesday night.

Lucroy doubled twice and drove in a run, raising his batting average to .341. Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura each had an RBI as the NL Central leaders wore down Jacob deGrom (0-3), still looking for his win after six mostly solid starts.

The shaggy-haired rookie was lifted in the sixth after throwing 80 strikes in 107 pitches. But he got little help from his teammates as New York lost for the seventh time in eight games.

Peralta (6-5) used a 96-98 mph fastball and nasty slider to hold scuffling David Wright and the punchless Mets to four hits in 6 1-3 innings.
