MILWAUKEE -- Ryan Braun helped the Brewers head out on a crucial road trip with plenty of confidence. Braun hit two home runs and rookie pitcher Wily Peralta gave up two singles in eight innings, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Mets 3-0 Sunday. On Tuesday, Milwaukee begins goes to Pittsburgh for three games. Then its off to NL East-leading Washington for four games before a three-game trip to Central-leading Cincinnati. This road trip is going to be a tough road trip, and we know it," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. The Brewers began Sunday 2 1-2 games out of the second wild card spot behind St. Louis, which played later at Los Angeles. "A month ago we were out of it," Aramis Ramirez said. "All of a sudden we got hot. Were right there. Weve got a chance." Braun, the reigning NL MVP, now has 201 home runs in his career, as Milwaukee won for the 20th time in its last 26 games. Peralta (2-0) struck out five and walked one in his third start, and got his first major league hit when he doubled in the seventh. "Hes been amazing," Braun said. "I look at his stuff, and I dont know how hes not the top prospect in baseball. He has dominant stuff. There are very few guys who have stuff like that in baseball." John Axford pitched the ninth for his 29th save. New Yorks Chris Young (4-8) threw 6 2-3 innings and allowed three runs - all solo homers -- and eight hits. "Hes a fly ball pitcher," New York manager Terry Collins said. "If you get enough of the ball here, its going to get out. But he pitched well. He kept us in the game. Two hits isnt going to get us very far." The Mets lost for the eighth time in nine games. Braun is the sixth Brewers player to reach 200 homers and seventh to reach 40 in a season. His homer to lead off the sixth was his 103rd run batted in of the year and gave Milwaukee a 3-0 lead. "Individual accomplishments are always far more enjoyable when they come in the context of a team win, a meaningful win," Braun said. "Were in a position where every obviously every game is of the utmost importance. Its certainly easier to enjoy it when it comes on a day like this." In the fourth, Braun also led off with a deep home run to right-centre. Aramis Ramirez, the featured bobblehead giveaway at Miller Park, followed by smashing another long blast to left-centre for a 2-0 lead. That was more than enough Peralta, who led Milwaukee to its 19th victory in its last 22 home games. He stranded Josh Thole at second by getting Ruben Tejada to fly out in the third. In the sixth, Andres Torres led off with a single and took second on a sacrifice bunt by Young. Tejada fouled out and Daniel Murphy grounded out, however. NOTES: Milwaukee broke its single-season strikeout record when Peralta struck out Lucas Duda in the second. The Brewers now have 1,261 strikeouts, which leads the NL. .

TORONTO -- Jose Bautista cant wait to get going. After a season of frustration that ended in controversy, the Toronto Blue Jays slugger is excited for 2013 following the teams major roster overhaul. General manager Alex Anthopoulos added five former or current all-stars in a series of off-season moves, including the addition of National League Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey, fellow pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, as well as shortstop Jose Reyes and outfielder Melky Cabrera. "A lot of great moves. Alex has really stuck to his word and said that when the time was right he was going to pull some moves to make this team competitive for a long period of time and thats exactly what hes done," Bautista said Saturday at Rogers Centre as the Blue Jays kicked off their winter tour. "It gives all of us -- the players, the coaches, the fans, the front office, the ownership -- a lot of reasons to be excited and happy about our upcoming seasons." While the addition of new talent immediately makes the Blue Jays favourites in the American League East, it also brings added focus to a club that hasnt made the playoffs since winning back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. "Theyre great expectations. I wouldnt say its pressure," said Bautista, who missed the final two months of last season with a wrist injury that required surgery. "I would look at it like background noise -- noise thats helping you out. Everybody expects us to win and thats great but its not something were going to focus on because its not going to help us be better." The Blue Jays suffered through a miserable 2012 season that included a 73-89 record, former shortstop Yunel Escobar getting suspended for wearing eye black displaying an anti-gay slur written in Spanish during a game, and culminated with manager John Farrell jumping ship to the rival Boston Red Sox for what he called his "dream job." But in a hectic two months of trades, signings and the rehiring of former manager John Gibbons, Anthopoulos has created a buzz in a city starved for a winner. Bautista says now its up to the players to deliver on all that promise. "When you have such a competitive group put together on the same team you cant help but to feed off of each other and Im sure thats what were going to do," he said.dddddddddddd "Nobodys going to have to press or overdo it because nobody has to be spectacular. Everybody just has to come in, do their job and as a group were going to play pretty good baseball if everybody just does what theyre capable of doing." Bautista has even more reason to be happy with the roster makeover. After hitting a club-record 54 home runs in 2010, the 32-year-old has at times voiced his displeasure with the direction of the team since signing a long-term contract extension. "They wanted to build the organization from within, get heavy on the draft, get a lot of players (and) have a strong minor-league system (to) put themselves in a position to be able to pull these kinds of moves youre seeing today," Bautista said. "Weve got a pretty good team put together and when the season starts its time to play ball." Blue Jays first baseman/designated hitter Adam Lind was on vacation in Mexico when Novembers trade with the Marlins brought Buehrle, Johnson and Reyes to Toronto. "There were some Canadians down there and they let me know what happened," he said. "It just popped up out of nowhere, I checked the Internet and were getting three of the best players from the National League over to our team. Hopefully we can get to the playoffs. "Its a very exciting time to be a Blue Jay." Toronto left-hander Brett Cecil says players from last years roster are excited for spring training to meet their new teammates. "Every one of those guys makes the team better," he said. "The starting staff that we have now is one of the best in baseball. I think on paper were the best team in the AL East or even in (the majors). Its just a matter of going out and executing." Notes: Bautista updated his recovery from the wrist injury, saying he has full range of motion and is pain free. He has yet to face live pitching but has been in the batting cage five times a week. Bautista added that no determination has been made with regards to his participation at World Baseball Classic. ... The Blue Jays winter tour will include stops in Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Edmonton. cheap jerseys ' ' '
