Flores began his day by sending a 93-mph four-seam fastball from Mets starter Jacob deGrom over the wall in right field for his first Major League home run, a two-run shot that gave the Brewers a 2-1 lead in the second inning.
"It was a really good feeling to hit one, but it happened in a loss," Flores said. "It is better when you win. We are a team. I feel good, but at the same time, I feel bad because we lost the game."
Flores said that he had already received the ball back and that he planned to give it to his family.
Two innings later, Flores extended the Brewers' lead to 3-1 with a sacrifice fly to left that scored Aaron Hill, who walked to lead off the fourth and advanced to third on a single by Alex Presley.
