Gagne can't hold on

Mets 4, Brewers 2
Ben Sheets was in line to win his 13th game before the Mets came back. (Morry Gash/AP)
Ben Sheets tossed five scoreless innings, but had to leave with tightness in his left groin. The Brewers had the lead until the eighth, when Eric Gagne gave up a two-run homer and allowed a third run to score as the Brewers dropped the opener.
