Stolen base title slips away from Segura

NEW YORK -- After playing for the first time in 10 days on Saturday night, Jean Segura sat and watched on Sunday as the Mets' Eric Young Jr. swiped the National League's stolen base crown in the Brewers' 3-2 loss.

Segura and Young entered the day tied for the league lead with 44 steals, with Segura bidding to become the first Brewers player to lead the league in that category since Scott Podsednik in 2004. Young wasted no time, blooping a single in the first inning against Marco Estrada before stealing second base on the very next pitch.

For good measure, Young stole third, too.

"We wanted to get [Segura] out there, and we got him out there and he felt pretty good [Saturday]," manager Ron Roenicke said. "We just didn't really want to put him back out there today."

Carlos Gomez stole his 40th base in the second inning, extending his career high.
