Dodgers Fail To Sweep Mets In Sloppy Game, Lose 5-3

NEW YORK (AP) — Jonathon Niese hit an RBI double to provide himself some much-needed run support, and the New Nork Mets took advantage of two Dodgers miscues to end Zack Greinke’s remarkable runs-allowed streak and beat Los Angeles 5-3 Thursday night.

Juan Lagares had a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh and Niese (3-3) pitched seven sharp innings for New York, which won for just the sixth time in 20 games this month and avoided a three-game sweep.

Rookie Eric Campbell, playing his first career game in left field, doubled Yasiel Puig off second base after making a spectacular diving catch in the eighth to preserve the Mets’ lead.

Greinke’s stretch of 21 straight starts allowing two or fewer runs ended.
