Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer during a five-run fourth inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-6 win over the New York Mets on Saturday night.
Trailing 4-1 in the fourth the Brewers rallied for five runs to win for the 19th time in 25 games and stay in the hunt for a wild card. The Mets lost for the ninth time in 11 games.
Weeks' homer capped the inning and was his 20th of the season. He also had a double, scored two runs and drove in three. Reliever Brandon Kintzler (2-0) pitched a scoreless fifth to get credit for the victory.
Jenry Mejia (0-1) pitched three innings in his first major-league start exactly two years after undergoing ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction surgery.
