The Mets' offense was quiet on Friday night, recording only four hits in their 5-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Here are the takeaways...

1. Brandon Nimmo got things started with a leadoff triple on a deep drive to the wall in center field. Francisco Lindor drove in the run on a groundout to short, as the Mets went up 1-0. The Mets then loaded the bases as Pete Alonso reached first on an error, Michael Conforto walked, and Jonathan Villar singled to right. Eric Lauer struck James McCann out on his 39th pitch of the inning to get out of the jam.

2. Tylor Megill gave up a leadoff home run to Kolten Wong, as the Brewers tied things up at 1-1 right away. In the bottom of the third inning, Megill gave up back-to-back home runs as Willy Adames crushed a two-run homer and former MVP Christian Yelich hit a solo shot to center to give Milwaukee a 4-1 lead.

3. Megill walked Lorenzo Cain in the bottom of the fourth, as he would move all the way to third after a sacrifice bunt and a fly out. The rookie got out of the inning by striking out Adames on a full-count fastball. Kevin Pillar pinch-hit for him in the fifth, ending his night after 82 pitches and 4.0 IP. Megill allowed four earned runs on five hits with four walks and two strikeouts.

4. Yelich hit a leadoff triple to the corner in left field off Brad Hand in the fifth inning, and scored on Avisail Garcia's fly out to Nimmo as the Brewers went up 5-1. Nimmo cut off Conforto to make the catch, but his throw home was off target.

5. Jeff McNeil recorded an infield single in the seventh inning for just the team's third hit of the night, and first since the first inning. The single knocked Lauer out of the game for the Brewers, as he tied his career-high with nine strikeouts over 114 pitches.

6. Edwin Diaz pitched a 1-2-3 eighth inning, recording two strikeouts on 17 pitches (11 strikes).
