Brewers Lose to Mets 3-4

From Sportsline.com:

In and out. Up and down. Tom Glavine hit his spots all night Friday.

Glavine took advantage of the lowest-scoring team in the major leagues, striking out 11 Milwaukee batters over six innings as the New York Mets defeated the Brewers 4-3.

"The changeup was particularly good," Glavine said, reflecting on his 277th career victory. "The fastball's location was good. It hit both sides of the plate. It was a good formula."

It was not classic Glavine because he rarely has that many strikeouts. It was just the 13th time in his career he's had 10 or more in a game. And he felt it.

"That many strikeouts is a lot of work," the left-hander said. "I don't expect to do that very often. I was tired."

So after 107 pitches, he turned the game over to the bullpen. Milwaukee manager Ned Yost wasn't sorry to see him go.

"Glavine was vintage today," Yost said. "He was as good as I've seen him in a long time. Tommy was dead on."
