"DODGERS RAN THE METS OUT OF THEIR OWN TOWN"
DODGERS 8 METS 7
Rich Hill is on the hill for the Dodgers today, with a record of 1-2 and 5.30 ERA pitching against Jerry Blevins with a record of 1-1 with a 4.86 ERA. Rich Hill and Jerry Blevins did not pitch particularly well today. Each given up runs to make the game exciting.
The Dodgers went to the lumberyard and pounded out 7 solo home runs, and that is a feat in itself. They are only the 2nd team that ever did this on the road and the 5th team that have hit this many in a single game. The Dodgers also is the 1st team this year in the NL to go over 100 HR with 102, with 46 being hit in June. Their bat is sizzling hot.
The Dodgers needed every single HR to win as the Mets keep nibbling at their heel. It took Justin Turner's last HR in the 11th inning to put the Mets away. Dodgers swept the Mets in this 3 game serie with a score of 8-7.
