Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run tie-breaking homer in the 13th inning to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-1 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field Thursday night.

With the score tied 1-1, Lucroy hit a long homer to left off Mets reliever Carlos Torres (2-4).

Mark Reynolds added a run-scoring single in the 13th as the Brewers scored three in the inning.

The Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the second on Aramis Ramirez' seventh homer of the season.

In the fourth, the Mets tied it on a Bobby Abreu sacrifice fly off Brewers starter Kyle Lohse.

Lohse pitched eight innings allowing an unearned run on four hits, no walks and three strikeouts.

Zach Duke (4-0) picked up the win in relief.

The Brewers won two of the three games against the Mets and now lead St. Louis in the National League Central Division by five and a half games.
