The Mets beat the Dodgers 5-0 tonight at Dodger Stadium.
Why the Mets won:
Johan Santana was dominant, allowing three hits over eight shutout innings.
Why the Dodgers lost:
Nate Eovaldi was ineffective, allowing five runs on seven hits. The Mets knocked him out of the game after just 5.1 innings.
Points of discussion:
- Ike Davis hit a three-run home run in the sith inning to make the game 5-0. The homer was his 13th and his fourth in his last ten games. Ike was 2-for-4 on the night with two runs scored.
- Bobby Parnell came in and tossed a scoreless ninth inning, closing out the Dodgers on just six pitches.
- Daniel Murphy was also 2-for-4. He hit a sac fly in the second to give the Mets a 1-0 advantage.
- The Mets go for the sweep tomorrow with Dillon Gee (5-6, 4.42 ERA) going up against Clayton Kershaw (5-4, 2.74 ERA).
