NEW YORK (AP) — Zack Greinke’s shutout streak ended at 45 2-3 innings when the Mets scored the first of two scratch runs against him, and New York defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Sunday on newcomer Juan Uribe’s game-winning single off the wall in the 10th.
Jacob deGrom outpitched Greinke in a marquee matchup that lived up to its billing, but Yasmani Grandal hit a tying single in the ninth as Los Angeles erased a two-run deficit against closer Jeurys Familia, who was trying for a four-out save.
Greinke allowed a run in the third on an RBI grounder by deGrom and another in the sixth when rookie Michael Conforto was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.
One day after a mild Mets lineup broke loose for 15 runs and 21 hits, this one was a tight duel between NL All-Stars who entered with the two lowest ERAs in the league.
Curtis Granderson hustled for a leadoff double against Juan Nicasio (1-3) in the 10th. Granderson held at second on Ruben Tejada’s failed sacrifice attempt, and Daniel Murphy was intentionally walked.
Kenley Jansen relieved and Uribe, acquired late Friday night in a trade with Atlanta, launched an 0-2 pitch off the left-center fence to beat his former team. Los Angeles traded Uribe to the Braves earlier this season.
Uribe, who entered as a pinch hitter in the eighth, raised his arms in glee and was swarmed by his new teammates between first and second.
Jenrry Mejia (1-0) pitched out of a jam in the top of the 10th, striking out rookie slugger Joc Pederson and retiring Howie Kendrick with a runner on third.
The first 14 batters were retired before Greinke’s sharp single through the box sent deGrom darting out of the way — eliciting a quick glance and wry smile from the Mets’ right-hander.
Neither team managed an extra-base hit until Adrian Gonzalez and ex-Met Justin Turner delivered consecutive doubles with one out in the ninth. Grandal then grounded a sharp single inside third base past a diving Uribe.
Familia, left out of the All-Star Game despite dominant numbers, has squandered both of his save opportunities since the break. It was his fourth blown save in 31 chances this year.
Last season’s NL Rookie of the Year, deGrom yielded only two singles and struck out eight in 7 2-3 scoreless innings. After throwing 113 pitches, he walked off to a standing ovation from the crowd of 36,093 and touched the bill of his cap.
Greinke gave up just four singles in seven innings but left trailing 2-0.
The right-hander set down his first six batters, extending his scoreless streak to 45 2-3 innings — longest in the majors since Orel Hershiser set the big league record with 59 for the Dodgers in 1988. But he hit Kirk Nieuwenhuis with a pitch leading off the third, and Kevin Plawecki singled.
Nieuwenhuis went to third when Pederson fumbled the ball for an error, putting runners at the corners with none out. Greinke got ahead 0-2 on deGrom, who hit a bouncer to first base. Gonzalez threw home, where Nieuwenhuis slid in safely.
Despite the error, the run was earned because Granderson followed with a fly to right field that presumably could have scored Nieuwenhuis.
It was the first run Greinke had allowed in seven starts since June 13 at San Diego. He did give up a leadoff homer to AL MVP Mike Trout in the All-Star Game on July 14.
Greinke originally was scheduled to pitch Friday, but he went to Los Angeles to be with his wife, Emily, on Thursday night for the birth of their first child, Bode Nicholas. Greinke, who entered leading the majors with a 1.30 ERA, rejoined the team this weekend.
Dodgers: RHP Carlos Frias (lower back tightness) was scheduled to throw 50 pitches in a rehab outing for Class A Rancho Cucamonga. “From there I think we’re up in the air,” manager Don Mattingly said, adding that Frias could return as a starter or reliever when he’s ready. … Scott Van Slyke (stiff neck) came off the bench to play left field in the ninth. The outfielder hit his head on the partition while riding in a taxi that stopped short Saturday, but Mattingly didn’t think Van Slyke did any serious damage to his brain. “Van Slyke — you can’t really tell,” Mattingly joked.
Dodgers: After a day off, LHP Brett Anderson (5-5, 3.33 ERA) is scheduled to face his former team Tuesday night in an interleague home game against Oakland ace Sonny Gray (10-4, 2.30).
Mets: Rookie RHP Noah Syndergaard (4-5, 2.97 ERA) faces Padres RHP James Shields (8-3, 3.77) in the opener of a three-game series Tuesday night.
