Baseball is a game of ups and downs, former Soquel High School standout Casey McGehee has learned.

"I experienced them both pretty quick," said McGehee, who hit his first career grand slam shortly after he dropped a popup during the host Milwaukee Brewers' 10-6 victory over the New York Mets.

The versatile McGehee, who played third base Monday, homered in the sixth inning.J.J.

Hardy went 4 for 4 with a homer for the N.L.

Central-leading Brewers.

Hardy also finally got McGehee to smile a few innings after he dropped the routine popup.

"I think it even took him a couple of innings to realize what he had done because he was still pretty upset about the dropped popup," Hardy said.

"We were all really excited for him." McGehee, who made his major league debut with the Chicago Cubs last season, said: "You play long enough you're going to have one of those, 'What are you doing moments?' I more felt terrible for (pitcher Braden) Looper because he was throwing the ball so well." Brian Schneider hit the next pitch for a two-run double to cut the Mets' deficit to 3-2, but Looper got out of the sixth-inning jam.

In the bottom of the inning, McGehee drove a high fastball from reliever Brian Stokes into the Brewers' bullpen in left-center field.

McGehee has hit all five of his career homers in his past 13 games, Even when shortstop Khalil Greene homered in his first three games after going on the 15-day Advertisementdisabled list because of social anxiety disorder, St.

Louis Manager Tony La Russa held off celebrating.

"When he had success in Kansas City, that wasn't really the test," La Russa said.

"The test is when you struggle and how you handle it." Greene scuffled the next five games, going 1 for 17, and the anxiety resurfaced.

The Cardinals returned him to the D.L.

on Monday.

"We just felt it was a move we had to make to get him away from it again," La Russa said.

Former Stanford outfielder Sam Fuld was recalled by the Cubs from Triple-A Iowa to replace infielder Aaron Miles, who went on the 15-day disabled list because of a hyperextended right elbow.

Fuld hit .410 in his last 10 games for Iowa and had a .398 average in June.
