Young wins SB crown, Mets rally past Brewers 3-2

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Eric Young Jr. won the National League stolen base crown and helped the New York Mets rally past Milwaukee 3-2 on Sunday when the Brewers botched two bunts in the eighth inning.

Young swiped two bases in the first, scored on a shallow sacrifice fly and later threw out a runner at the plate from left field. He began the day tied for the NL lead in steals at 44 with Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura, who sat out for the 10th time in 11 games.

Segura returned Saturday from a strained right hamstring but he and the Brewers didn't want to push it in the season finale, manager Ron Roenicke said.

Playing in front of their third sellout crowd this year, the Mets prevented a four-game sweep by Milwaukee and finished 74-88 in their fifth straight losing season since moving into Citi Field.
