Mets RHP Matt Harvey allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings against the Brewers on Saturday night.
Harvey fell victim to the long ball, allowing two homers on the night -- including a three-run homer. It marked the 11th consecutive time Harvey failed to pitch more than five innings in a start.
After retiring the side in order in the first inning, Harvey immediately ran into trouble in the second when Travis Shaw hit a leadoff double and Domingo Santana drew a walk. But Jonathan Villar homered on a fly ball to left field to put the Brewers in front, 3-0.
Jett Bandy added a solo shot in the fourth to extend Milwaukee's lead to 4-0. Harvey ended the night with six strikeouts and one walk while throwing 95 pitches.
"I just have to be better than that," Harvey said after the game. "We had a good streak going and tonight I needed to go out and be better and that loss is on me completely."
After three starts to begin the season, Harvey has a 4.80 ERA.
