The Mets bid for a sweep was wiped off the table, as the Dodgers–led by Clayton Kershaw–downed the Mets, 4-2. Kershaw, predictably, pitched a terrific game, throwing 6.6 innings, giving-up 6 hits, 1 earned-run, 3 walks, while striking out 8 batters. The Mets made things interesting in the bottom of the ninth when Jose Reyes tripled-in Dan Murphy, but newly-tapped closer, Vicente Padilla, eventually closed the door for his second save.
