Former Brewers starter Tommy Milone struck out his first batter as a member of the New York Mets for just his second out in Queens.

Milone is a welcome addition for the Mets, as their rotation has fallen into disarray with Noah Syndergaard going down with a long-term injury, while Steven Matz and Seth Lugo aren’t due back for at least a few weeks as well.
The southpaw is 45-33 during his seven-year career, posting a 4.21 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 121 starts.
Milone also has a unique history with the Mets — his first career win came against them in 2011, while he also homered in his first career at-bat against Dillon Gee in the same year.
