NEW YORK — Jacob deGrom’s ERA rose to 1.08 as he allowed a pair of solo home runs and got his third straight no-decision as the New York Mets beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 in the eight-inning opener of a doubleheader split.

Milwaukee won the second game 5-0 behind two-run homers by Manny Pina and Luis Urías, along with Willy Adames’ solo shot.

Urías homered twice in the doubleheader.

Edwin Díaz forced in a run by hitting Christian Yelich with a pitch in the eighth inning of the opener, and Jeff McNeil hit a two-run single in the bottom half off Brent Suter.
