The Brewers rallied, however, allowing Jungmann to escape with a no-decision in Milwaukee's win.
Jungmann gave up five hits, including his first home run allowed since his first start of the season. He walked two and struck out four.
Jungmann threw five scoreless innings, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out five. He labored though, needing 91 pitches to get through the fifth. He settled for a no-decision, as the Mets took their lead after Jungmann exited the game.
"I thought he was good," manager Craig Counsell said, per MLB.com. "He had to work hard, especially in the first four innings. He made a good pitch to [Lucas] Duda when he had to, and he made a good pitch to [Michael] Cuddyer when he had to."
The young righty has allowed a total of seven earned runs through his first four Major League starts, as he continues to be a pleasant surprise for the Brewers. He lowered his ERA to 2.74 following Thursday's performance.
"I've battled through some outings," Jungmann said. "A couple of outings I haven't had my best stuff, but I think that's what the game is about, battling. Competing is what I love to do."
Jungman (2-1) was on the positive end of an offensive outburst, as his team was victorious by a score of 9-5, making the uneven start not as bad as it looked. He only had one rough inning, a three-run fourth, but the Brewers were already ahead 7-0 at that point.
"Taylor did a heck of a job," manager Craig Counsell said, per MLB.com. "For me, the starting pitcher at Coors Field, you just try to beat the other starting pitcher. That's your job. That's who you're going against. Just beat him, and he did that."
Jungman is scheduled to make his next start on Thursday at home against the Mets.
"I was really proud of Taylor," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said, per MLB.com. "I thought he had to fight for everything he got and he kept us in the game. I think it's one of those starts where you'll look back on it and you'll say, 'I did a pretty good job today. I survived and I gave my team a shot.'"
Jungmann allowed two runs on seven hits over five innings of work during Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Nationals.
"The point is, he had a tough day, but kept us in the game, and that's a success," Counsell said.
Jungmann (1-1) struck out five and walked two during the outing and his ERA now stands at 2.25. It was just his second start in his career. His next expected start is scheduled for Friday at Colorado.
"He steps across his body pretty good. I think it creates some deception," Counsell said. "It's a different look for a hitter, and hitters don't like seeing something different."
Jungmann earned his first career win, allowing three hits. He walked one, struck out five, and gave up a home run for his only run allowed.
Milwaukee hasn't announced whether Jungmann will make his second career start on Sunday, against Washington. The game's starter is listed as TBA.
