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.
