NEW YORK (AP) - Scooter Gennett capped a four-run second inning with a two-run single and the Milwaukee Brewers overcame some wild pitching Thursday night that included the beaning of David Wright for a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets.

Wright was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Johnny Hellweg with two outs in the third inning. The All-Star third baseman went down to his hands and knees but he was able to walk off the field unassisted. The Mets said he was removed as a precaution.

Hellweg hit Lucas Duda with the next pitch - in the back of the leg - and then loaded the bases with a four-pitch walk. But the Mets, who entered with a home record worse than all in the National League except the Cubs (31-50), could not take advantage.

Coming off a road trip in which they won five of six, the Mets were 0 for 14 with runners in scoring position in dropping to 32-46 at Citi Field.

Hellweg failed to make it to the fifth despite leading 4-1. He gave up a run and two hits, walked four, hit two batters and threw a wild pitch. Alfredo Figaro (3-3) took over and he balked a runner to second when he dropped the ball to the mound while bringing his arm back during his delivery.

Dillon Gee (12-11) has been one of the Mets' most consistent pitchers since May 30. He entered with a 2.57 ERA in 21 starts since then and, except for an unfortunate third inning, he shut down the short-handed Brewers for six innings.

Milwaukee was playing without Carlos Gomez, who was serving a one-game suspension for inciting a benches-clearing fracas against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night. Gomez admired his first-inning homer too long and shouted at Braves starter Paul Maholm as he rounded the bases. Irate catcher Brian McCann blocked Gomez's approach to home plate and players rushed out of their dugouts. In the fray, Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez aggravated a knee injury and was also out Thursday.

And Jean Segura missed his eighth straight game because of a strained right hamstring. He entered leading the NL with 44 steals but Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. tied him by swiping two bases.

Young scored on Daniel Murphy's groundout in the third.

Jim Henderson gave up a homer, affirmed by video review, to pinch-hitter Josh Satin before striking out three for his 27th save.

The Brewers scored four times in the second in front of a sparse crowd that barely made any noise except for the startled ``oohs'' when Wright was hit.

Gee walked Khris Davis to start the inning. Caleb Gindl singled to left-center and, after an out, Juan Francisco drove in a run with a slow-rolling grounder up the middle. Jeff Bianchi added another RBI with a soft blooper to left.

Lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth, Gee gave up four runs and seven hits. He walked two in finishing the season at 199 innings, an encouraging sign after missing much of last season following surgery to remove a blood clot from an artery in his pitching shoulder.

NOTES: Mets minor league OF Cesar Puello's 50-game suspension that was a result of MLB's investigation into Biogenesis, the Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs, has been completed. He was reinstated from the restricted list and placed on the roster of Double-A Binghamton. Puello was suspended under the major league guidelines because he is on New York's 40-man roster. ... Mets OF Juan Lagares was out of the lineup because his girlfriend gave birth to his first child, Juan Lagares Jr. early Thursday. ... Brewers OF Norichika Aoki started in center field for first time this season.
