NEW YORK, April 11 (UPI) -- Nelson Figueroa won his first game as a starter in more than four years Friday, producing a six-inning outing to carry the New York Mets past Milwaukee 4-2.

Figueroa (1-0) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out six, helping the Mets win their third straight. He last started and won a game in August 2003, with that one also coming against the Brewers.

New York did not manage an extra-base hit, but the Mets put together four of their eight singles along with a walk and a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning for three runs.

Milwaukee lost its third straight.

The setback went to Manny Parra (1-1), who gave up three runs on six hits in four innings.

Figueroa did not allow a base runner until the fifth.
