The New York Mets have won their second straight game, and the first of the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Mets starter Jon Niese pitched a mediocre game (5.6 innings, 7 hits, 3 earned-runs, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts), but it was enough to support the explosive Mets offense. Ike Davis, Carlos Beltran, and Jason Pridie chased Dodgers pitcher Hiroki Kuroda for 7 hits and 5 earned-runs over 5.6 innings. The game-changing moment goes to Jason Pridie’s shocking three-run home-run in the bottom of the sixth inning.
