Dodgers hammer Mets in homer-fest, 7-4

Dodgers hammer Mets in homer-fest, 7-4

The good news for the New York Mets is Sunday night is the final time they have to face the Los Angeles Dodgers this season. Rather than lay such a ridiculous price on the best team in baseball, why not target the more reasonably priced runline, where the Dodgers have covered the 1.5 runs in 34 of their 47 home wins this season (.723).

"It couldn't have went any better", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "Other than that, I don't know why we hit so many homers against the Mets". He lost his no-hit bid in the fifth, and entered the sixth inning with a three-run cushion. It was the third time this season the boys in blue have hit five or more homers in a single game against the Mets, having hit five twice when the Mets were in June. "Sometimes those translate to pop flys, but today they were home runs". But Hill, the NL Pitcher of the Month in July, struck out Michael Conforto (who had homered in the first), induced a lazy fly ball from Asdrubal Cabrera and struck out Yoenis Cespedes to end the inning. Cody Bellinger then hit a two-run shot off Lugo to tie the game at 3-3, his 31st of the season and his sixth against the Mets.

Said Turner: "Everyone knows what the goal is". "We stayed with out approach and luckily we got them". On top of that, Seth Lugo did not allow a hit to the Dodgers until there were two outs in the fifth inning.

Hill also did not factor in the decision, despite settling down after his frustrating first inning. That's where Stripling ran into his problem, giving up a moonshot to left field to cut the deficit to three runs. "How we're able to continue to fight and comeback".

Lugo is coming off one of his worst efforts of the season following Sunday's loss at Seattle in which he surrendered five runs - including a pair of homers - and eight hits in five frames. He is 2-0 with a 2.50 ERA in three regular-season outings against Los Angeles, all on the road.

But it was the Dodgers who flexed their depth, with a lineup that has power hitter Yasiel Puig batting eighth. So it was in this one, just not in the way you would think.

Los Angeles set a franchise record for the best 50-game stretch in team history with their 43 win on Saturday.

The Dodgers are running away with the Division and are on a record 43-7 tear.

"I think some guys in the clubhouse think I was on that team", joked Hill of the 1912 Giants. Not to be outdone, the three-game losing streak that took place back in early June was followed by a six-game winning streak that turned into 16 victories over the course of just 17 games.

Left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-6, 3.83) will square off against left-hander Steven Matz (2-4, 5.50).
