Dodgers Vs. Mets Final Score: L.A. Shutout For 5th Time In 6 Games, 5-0

The Los Angeles Dodgers ended June on the lowest of notes on Saturday, falling 5-0 to the New York Mets for their seventh straight loss. But it is much worse than that.

Johan Santana allowed just one hit in seven scoreless innings, and Ike Davis doubled and hit a three-run home run for the Mets, who have won four straight games.

For the Dodgers, Saturday was their fifth shutout loss in their last six games. The Dodgers have not scored in their last 23 innings, scoring only in the fourth inning on Thursday night. That snapped a 33-inning scoreless streak, so the Dodgers have been held scoreless in 56 of their last 57 innings.

The Dodgers have lost 11 of their last 12 games, scoring just 15 runs during that span. That is the fewest runs scored by the Dodgers in any 12-game span since moving to Los Angeles in 1958.

Nathan Eovaldi allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings for his fifth loss of the season. The Dodgers have scored five runs in his seven starts, including just three runs with Eovaldi in the game.

The Dodgers will try to avoid the four-game sweep on Sunday night, with Clayton Kershaw on the mound against Dillon Gee for the Mets.
