Dodgers also lose, 2-1

Some enjoyment from another 2-1 loss up close -- this one doled out to the dodgers by the Mets. Yasiel Puig, who is looking massively over-rated, looked particularly bad striking out in the 8th.

Here's part of's story -- Please note that Clayton Kershaw did not get a win. Eat it, Clayton. Eat it raw....

LOS ANGELES -- The Mets still aren't scoring particularly often, but on Friday night, at least, they managed to score enough. Kevin Plawecki hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, lifting the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on a night that saw Noah Syndergaard hold one of the National League's best offenses to two hits in six innings.
The Mets never led until the ninth, when they parlayed a bloop double, an infield single and Plawecki's sacrifice fly into their second run. They still scored two or fewer runs for the 12th time in 14 games, but won for the fifth time during that stretch.
Syndergaard delivered a quality start at Dodger Stadium, holding Los Angeles to two hits -- one of them an Adrian Gonzalez solo homer -- and two walks over six innings. But the rookie received a no-decision thanks in large part to the efforts of Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw, who recovered from a shaky first few innings to retire 10 of the final 11 batters he faced. Kershaw lasted seven innings, striking out seven and allowing one run.
