Mets Vs. Dodgers Final Score: New York Defeats Los Angeles 5-0

The New York Mets won their fourth straight game on Saturday night, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers by a final score of 5-0.

Second baseman Daniel Murphy got the Mets on the board in the top of the second inning with a sacrifice fly that scored first baseman Ike Davis. Three innings later, New York struck again, this time off a sacrifice fly by catcher Jim Thole that sent Daniel Murphy home. In the sixth, Ike Davis blasted a three-run homer to extend New York’s lead to 5-0. It was Davis’s 11th home run on the season and his 45th RBI.

Starting pitcher Johan Santana was credited with the victory after throwing a three-hitter over eight innings of work. He struck out three and picked up his sixth win (6-4 overall). Dodgers starting pitcher Nate Eovaldi was given the loss after pitching 5.1 innings and allowing all five of New York’s runs.

The win improves New York to 43-36, while the Dodgers loss gives them the same record as the Mets. The Mets will go for the series sweep over Los Angeles on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.
