Dodgers End Streak With 6-0 Win Over Mets

The Dodgers snap their 5-game losing streak by beating the Mets Thursday night in Los Angeles. Clayton Kershaw held New York scoreless over 8 innings, while the Dodger hitters broke open the game in the 6th by scoring 5 runs.

In beating the Mets, the Dodgers avoided a Mets’ 4-game sweep at home, and ended New York’s own 4-game winning streak.

Kershaw (9-4) lasted 8 innings, scattering 5 hits and striking out 9, was able to get himself out of a bases loaded jam in the 8th before giving way to Kenley Jansen who loaded then bases on two walks and a hit in the 9th. Hong Chih Kuo releived Jansen and retired the final two batters to end the game. The win was Kershaw’s 7th in his last 8 decisions.

The Dodgers scored a run in the second on an Aaron Miles sacrifice fly that scored Juan Uribe, but the big inning came in the 6th the Dodger hitters connected for four extra-base hits. Matt Kemp doubled to left to score Tony Gwynn and Andre Ethier. He was driven in by a Juan Uribe double to right. After a James Looney strikeout, Aaron Miles drove in his second run of the game with a double to right center scoring Uribe. Dioner Navarro greeted Mets reliever Manny Acosta with a triple to right that drove in Miles and the 5th run of the inning.
