MILWAUKEE — Ryan Braun hit a three-run double and scored on Johan Santana's throwing error, sending the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-3 victory over the Mets on Tuesday night that extended New York's losing streak to a season-high five games.

Prince Fielder hit a 452-foot solo home run and Mike Burns earned his first major league win for the Central Division leaders, who have won four of five. They provided a fitting end to New York's worst month in nearly six years. The Mets finished June with a 9-18 mark and head into July still missing injured stars Carlos Beltran (knee), Jose Reyes (calf, hamstring) and Carlos Delgado (hip).

If the Mets lose today's series finale, they'll match their longest losing streak since September 2005.
