Curtis Granderson started this game off on the right foot with a leadoff home run, his 16th home run of the season, to give the Mets an instantaneous 1-0 lead. Unfortunately, that would represent the only lead of the evening as the Mets fell 6-2 to the Dodgers.
The Mets scored their only other run in the ninth inning, on a sacrifice fly by Lucas Duda, scoring Daniel Murphy. The Dodgers tied the game in the third on a Dee Gordon single, and then took the lead for good in the fifth inning on a Dan Haren RBI single after a botched suicide squeeze attempt. The Dodgers then tacked on three additional runs, largely resulting from a throwing error by Wilmer Flores in the seventh, allowing Dee Gordon to score, followed by a double by Matt Kemp to score Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez. They then added one additional run in the bottom of the eighth on an A.J. Ellis double, allowing Justin Turner to score.
