Wright, Mets Beat Free Falling Dodgers 3-2

LOS ANGELES (AP) — David Wright hit a solo homer and RBI double as the New York Mets sent the Los Angeles Dodgers to their fifth straight loss, 3-2 Thursday night.

The Dodgers ended their 33-inning scoreless drought in the fourth, with Dee Gordon getting congratulated up and down the dugout after crossing the plate. But they couldn’t break through against the Mets’ bullpen and dropped from the top of the NL West standings.

Chris Young (2-1) allowed two runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings, striking out six and walking none.

Bobby Parnell, getting his first save opportunity since closer Frank Francisco went on the disabled list, pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first save of the year.

Chris Capuano (9-3) gave up three runs and five hits in seven innings.
