Mets (43-36) At Dodgers (43-36) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers will polish off their four-game series at Dodgers Stadium (8:05 p.m. ET on ESPN). The nationally televised game will feature the Mets trying to complete a four-game sweep of the Dodgers and extended their current winning streak to five games.

Second-year pitcher Dillon Gee (5-6) will take the mound for New York as he opposes lefty Clayton Kershaw (5-4). Gee will be looking to bounce-back from one of his more disappointing starts last Tuesday, when he surrendered four runs in five innings in a 5-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

Meanwhile, the 2011 Cy Young Award winner is trying to help the Dodgers keep pace in the NL West Division standings, which features the first-place San Francisco Giants just a game ahead of LA.

Mets Vs. Dodgers Final Score: New York Wins 9-0 Behind Another Gem From R.A. Dickey

The New York Mets trounced the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday night, behind another stellar performance from R.A. Dickey. Dickey threw 116 pitches over eight innings, 81 of them for strikes. He struck out ten and walked only one while giving up no runs and just three hits. Dickey bounced back from his recent performance against the New York Yankees, where he gave up five runs in six innings. He improves to 12-1, the first pitcher in the majors to reach 12 wins, and has an ERA of 2.15.

The Mets offense was led by Daniel Murphy. The second baseman went 2-for-5 with five RBI, two on a double in the fifth and three on a home run in the seventh. Ruben Tejada went 4-for 5 with an RBI. David Wright, Ike Davis, Lucas Duda and Kirk Nieuwenhuis also had RBI for New York.

With the win the Mets have taken the first two games of the four game series. Game 3 is scheduled for Saturday at 7:15 p.m. ET.
