The New York Mets will look to stop a six-game losing streak in Milwaukee this weekend.

The New York Mets are coming off their worst losing streak of 2012 after enduring consecutive sweeps at the hands of the Atlanta Braves and the league-leading Washington Nationals. The Mets (65-78) now get to spend the weekend in Milwaukee, where the surging Brewers -- 18-5 in their last 23 games -- haven't lost since Aug. 19.

The Brewers (72-71) are over .500 for the first time since mid-April and are only three games out of the second wild card spot. Milwaukee will run out right-hander Mike Fiers (9-7, 3.05) Friday night, who will make his first career start against New York.

The Mets will start Jonathon Niese (10-9, 3.47) Friday, a right-hander who, like Fiers, hasn't received much run support this year. Niese has made quality starts in his last five appearances, but has lost his last three. New York scored a total of three runs in those games.
