The Mets took an early lead but could not hold it.
The Mets were beaten by the Dodgers for the second time in as many nights on Saturday. Neither Zack Greinke nor Jacob deGrom gave up a run through three innings, but Greinke cracked first and gave up a three-run home run to Juan Lagares in the fourth inning.
But deGrom, too, got into trouble in the fourth, and he wound up allowing two runs to score in that inning. Adrian Gonzalez singled in the first, and Erisbel Arruebarrena hit a long sacrifice fly to Juan Lagares to score the second. And after Greinke put up a zero in the top of the fifth, deGrom gave up a three-run home run to Gonzalez in the bottom half, and the Mets trailed 5-3.
Lucas Duda cut the Mets’ deficit to one with a solo home run in the sixth, but Vic Black, Josh Edgin, and some terrible Mets defense allowed two runs to score in the bottom of the seventh, the last runs of the game as the Mets eventually lost 7-4.
