NEW YORK -- A game that featured 35 hits and seven home runs was decided by four consecutive pitches out of the strike zone.
"At 3-0, I looked down to third to see if there was a sign," Piazza said.
There was none.
"I've hit into double plays in those situations. I could see a 3-0, broken-bat comebacker to the pitcher," Piazza said, "so I was pretty much taking."
"He supplied most of the power," said Cameron, who has seven hits in two games since New York held onto him at the trade deadline Sunday.
David Wright also connected for the Mets, who overcame a four-run deficit and Milwaukee's season-high five homers.
Lee drove in four runs, increasing his NL-leading total to 89. He also had four hits.
"We labored the whole night," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "It was a great offensive night for us."
Wright opened the 11th with a single and was running as Cameron hit a liner right at shortstop Bill Hall, who was moving over to cover second base. The ball appeared to catch Hall by surprise and glanced off his glove into center field, putting runners at the corners.
"I was trying to get a groundball," Santana said.
Braden Looper (4-4) pitched two scoreless innings for the win.
Cameron had four hits, and Miguel Cairo added three for the Mets.
It took Milwaukee 107 games this season to hit consecutive home runs, and one inning to duplicate the feat. The last time the Brewers hit five homers was April 25, 2003, in Atlanta.
Lee's 26th home run in the first inning was a two-run shot, and Jenkins made it 3-0.
Branyan opened the second with his 10th homer, a drive over the center-field fence, and Miller followed with his sixth. Lee added an RBI single off Aaron Heilman, making it 6-2.
Lee's two-out RBI single in the sixth made it 7-4, but the Mets tied it in the seventh.
Wright hit a solo homer, his 16th. Mientkiewicz and Castro hit consecutive doubles with two outs, and Marlon Anderson drove in the tying run with a single, his 16th pinch-hit this season.
