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.
