The Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets meet at Dodger Stadium on Friday night in the second of a crucial four-game series for both teams as Major League Baseball's pennant races heat up.

The Dodgers are trying to chase down the Giants in the NL West, entering Friday trailing by 2½ games – but have a huge 9½-game lead in the wild-card standings. The Mets meanwhile, have struggled through the summer and find themselves in third place in the NL East, five games back after leading the division for three months from May-August.

The Dodgers, who took Thursday's opener, have won all four contests between the two teams this season – including a three-game sweep last weekend at Citi Field in New York.
