In a matchup of NL aces, Matt Harvey was bested by Zack Greinke and the Mets lost to the Dodgers, 4-3. Harvey lasted just five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and walking five in an uncharacteristically wild outing. The Dodgers scored a run in the second and two more in the fifth, chasing Harvey and jumping out to a 3-0 lead.
Andres Torres allowed another run in the seventh, leaving the Mets with an insurmountable 4-0 deficit. To their credit, the offense didn't quit, scoring two runs in the eight inning and another in the ninth against the Dodgers' bullpen. Curtis Granderson struck out swinging to end the game with the tying run on first base.
Steven Matz makes his second major league start on Sunday afternoon as the Mets and Dodgers wrap up their series at 4:10 PM on Sunday.
