Dodgers Vs. Mets Final Score: 5-Run Rally In 12th Gives L.A. 8-3 Win, Sweep

In a game that took nearly five hours and saw 40 players used by both teams combined, the Los Angeles Dodgers completed their sweep of the New York Mets. Matt Treanor hit a go-ahead two-run single as part of a five-run 12th inning, leading the Dodgers to an 8-3 win over the Mets on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field.

Josh Wall pitched a scoreless 11th inning in his major league debut to pick up the win. Wall is the first Dodger to win a game in relief in his major league debut since Tim Belcher on September 6, 1987.

Juan Rivera hit a two-run home run for the Dodgers, who have won four straight games. Matt Kemp went 2-for-6 and scored twice in his fourth straight two-hit game.

With Kenley Jansen unavailable on Sunday, Javy Guerra was brought into the game in the ninth inning with a 3-2 lead. In his first save opportunity since May 6, Guerra allowed a run for a blown save, but was able to pitch through the 10th inning, getting the ball to Wall, who hadn't pitched since getting recalled to the Dodgers on July 14.

"Being here for a few days got me settled down, got the nerves settled down, and got the butterflies out of the way," Wall said.

Mark Ellis and A.J. Ellis each had two hits for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers head to St. Louis for a four-game series with the Cardinals beginning Monday. Chad Billingsley will be activated from the disabled list to start the series opener, facing Joe Kelly for the Cardinals.

Dodgers Vs. Mets: Game Time, TV Info & More

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to extend their winning streak to four games on Sunday as they go for a three-game sweep of the New York Mets at Citi Field. The Dodgers look to build on their strong offensive showing of the last three games.

After scoring 59 runs in a 26-game span (2.27 runs per contest), the Dodgers have scored 20 runs in their last three games, including an 8-5 win on Saturday against the Mets. Juan Uribe shook off his horrific season on Saturday with a home run, a double, two walks, and four RBI in the victory.

Hoping to get some of those runs of support is Nathan Eovaldi, who is 1-6 with a 4.33 ERA. The Dodgers have scored a total of 11 runs in his nine starts, including more than two runs just once.

Jon Niese gets the call on the mound for the Mets, who have seen their starting pitchers - Johan Santana and Miguel Batista - each throw just three innings in the first two games of the series.

The Mets made a roster move after Saturday's game, recalling right-handed pitcher Elvin Ramirez from Triple A Buffalo.

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis has sat the first two games of the series, on Saturday thanks to inflammation in his left knee. But an MRI exam showed nothing further and he is expected to start in the series finale.

The Dodgers and Mets have split six games so far this season, with the Dodgers winning the last three.

Sunday morning's game, the third of a 10-game road trip for the Dodgers, starts at 10:10 a.m. PDT and will be televised by Prime Ticket.

Dodgers Vs. Mets Final Score: Juan Uribe Homers, Doubles In 8-5 Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers got production from an unexpected source on Saturday, as Juan Uribe homered, doubled, walked twice, and drove in four runs in an 8-5 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field. It was the third straight win for the Dodgers, who have scored 20 runs in their last three games.

Uribe entered the day hitting just .264. No wait, that was his slugging percentage. He was hitting .238; no wait, that was his on-base percentage. Uribe was hitting just .186 entering Saturday and in the middle of a 1-for-38 slump.

He doubled in the third inning for a 3-0 lead, and homered in the ninth to widen their one-run lead into a three-run advantage.

Chris Capuano allowed three runs in seven innings, with one walk and nine strikeouts, winning his 10th game of the season. Kenley Jansen walked two in the ninth but allowed no runs with one strikeout for his 18th save.

The Dodgers chased Miguel Batists after just three innings, the second straight game a Mets starter pitched only three innings. The New York bullpen was so taxed that starter R.A. Dickey was summoned to pitch in relief in the ninth. He allowed the two-run home run to Uribe.

Nathan Eovaldi starts the series finale on Sunday morning as the Dodgers go for the sweep, facing Jon Niese for the Mets.
