Mets Extend Dodgers Skid To 3-Games
(CBS) — Rookie Rubby De La Rosa pitched into the 6th inning without allowing a hit, but the New York Mets prevailed, beating the Dodgers 5-2 at Dodger Stadium.
For the first time since Opening Day, Dodger Stadium was a sellout, but it was much of the same for the offense.
Chris Capuano held the Dodgers to two runs over six innings, both RBI singles by James Loney and struck out five.
De La Rosa was cruising along until hitting a rough patch in the sixth, Angel Pagan doubled off the glove of Loney, followed by a Carlos Beltran double and another double by Daniel Murphy.
De La Rosa was charged with three runs in seven innings.
The Dodgers remain 11 games out of first place in the NL West, and fall two games behind San Diego for fourth place.
