Dodgers Win Wild One To Complete Sweep Over Mets
NEW YORK (CBS) – Pinch-hitter Matt Treanor’s two out single in the top of the 12th inning broke open a 3-3 game as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the New York Mets 8-3 to complete a weekend sweep on Sunday.
Josh Wall picked up the win, after pitching a scoreless 11th inning in his major league debut.
40 players appeared in the game, including Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw, who was used as a pinch-hitter.
With Kenley Jansen unavailable to pitch, Javy Guerra couldn’t keep the Mets from tying the game in the ninth inning, as Ike Davis sent the game to extra innings when his weak grounder to James Loney scored Ruben Tejada.
With the win, the Dodgers move within 1.5 games of the San Francisco Giants in the NL West, and have won four straight games.
The Dodgers will begin a four game series in St. Louis on Monday night.
