>>Bucks Lose First Playoff Game In OT 113-107

(Boston, MA) — Khris Middleton gave Milwaukee a chance by hitting a 3-pointer at the buzzer, but the Bucks fell in overtime 113-107 Sunday in the first round of the N-B-A playoffs. The Celtics led 99-96 with a half-second remaining when Middleton connected from 35 feet out. Boston owned the overtime 14-8. Giannis Atetokounmpo fouled out after scoring 35 points, grabbing 13 rebounds and passing out seven assists. Middleton had 31. The Bucks were hurt by 20 turnovers.

>>Mets Walk-Off With 3-2 Win Over Brewers In Frigid Conditions

(New York, NY) — Wilmer Flores hit a walk-off game-winning home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, giving the New York Mets a 3-2 win over Milwaukee. Players bundled up in high-tech athletic gear to deal with a windy game-time temperature of 42 degrees on Jackie Robinson Day. Matt Albers took the loss after shaking off his catcher, then delivering a sinker belt-high which Flores deposited over the fence in left-centerfield. Mets starter Noah Syndergaard struck out eight straight batters at one point — two short of the major league record. The Brewers held a 2-1 lead in the sixth after a pair of Met fielding mistakes. The Brewers get what could be a break in the schedule when the struggling Cincinnati Reds visit for a game tonight. Brent Suter will be the Milwaukee starter.
