Ethier Extends Streak, Dodgers Fall To Mets

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Andre Ethier became the first player in two years to extend a hitting streak to 30 games, but Jason Pridie’s three-run homer in the sixth inning carried the New York Mets past the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3 Friday night in the opener of a weekend series between baseball’s most financially troubled teams.

Pridie, a 27-year-old with just four big league at-bats before this year, hit his first career home run April 24 against Arizona — also a three-run drive. With the Mets trailing 3-2 on Friday, he homered off a bullpen roof in right-center against Hiroki Kuroda (3-3) following an intentional walk to Ike Davis.
