The Mets won their third straight game, won the series against the Dodgers, and have a chance for a sweep tomorrow. The big story in this game was that Chris Young had trouble getting loose in the bullpen before the game and was scratched. Dillon Gee got the last minute call to start. He seemed to be in trouble in every inning but went 5.1 innings and allowed only 2 runs.

The Mets offense had 9 hits and 5 walks. Jose Reyes was 2 for 5 but fell asleep off first base and got picked off by Dioneer Navarro in an embarrassing play. Then he broke from second to third on a ball hit to the shortstop. He definitely didn’t have his head in the game on the bases tonight.

The big hit came in the bottom of the eighth from Justin Turner. The bases were loaded and he hit a long ball to center that went over Matt Kemp’s head for a long single scoring 2 runs.
