MILWAUKEE -

Kirk Nieuwenhuis drove in a career-best five runs and Zack Wheeler allowed one earned run over five shaky innings to pace the New York Mets to a 12-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.

Nieuwenhuis entered the game hitting .179 in 56 at-bats after being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on June 9, but raised his average to .233 with his first four-hit game, getting two singles, a triple, a double and two walks.

Wheeler (2-1) gave up three runs on seven hits and walked three.

Brewers starter Johnny Hellweg (0-2) allowed seven runs in 3 2-3 innings, but only three were earned. He also walked five.

Carlos Gomez had four hits for the Brewers, including two RBI doubles, and robbed pinch hitter Marlon Byrd of a home run in the seventh with a leaping grab above the center-field wall.
