The New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers continue their series at Citi Field Saturday.
The Los Angeles Dodgers seem to have found a groove this past week and need to keep it going to catch San Francisco in the National League West. The Dodgers weren’t in a groove Friday night with a 6-5 loss at the Mets as a spirited 9th inning rally went for naught. LAD starter Julio Urias gave up three runs in the first and left after 2.2 frames on five hits and four free passes before Pedro Baez served up a walk off homer in the 9th to absorb the loss. Los Angeles totaled eight hits and walked four times with Chase Utley driving in four while Yasiel Puig scored twice. The Dodgers will be sending Kenta Maeda to the hill for his second meeting with the Mets. Maeda has struggled the past three times out with 12 runs allowed on 15 hits and five BB over 14 innings.

The New York Mets have been playing well and that has them poised to take over the National League East lead. The Mets stayed hot Friday and have won six of seven overall with starter Jacob deGrom allowing a run on three hits and three walks through seven innings while whiffing seven. However closer Jeurys Familia gave up four runs on four hits and a walk to blow the save before picking up the win when the Mets scored in the bottom of the 9th. The Mets attack consisted of nine hits and four walks with Juan Lagares going 3-4 with a homer and three RBI’s while David Wright went solo before Curtis Granderson smacked a walk off jack in the 9th. The Mets are scheduled to hand the ball to Noah Syndergaard for his second start against the Dodgers Saturday. Syndergaard has not allowed an earned run in back to back outings covering seven frames apiece.
The Mets are 12-4 in their last 16 home games and are 12-4 in Syndergaard’s last 16 home starts while going 8-3 in Syndergaard’s last 11 starts. The Dodgers are 11-5 in the last 16 meetings in New York. I’ll back the Mets and pray Familia doesn’t touch the ball…
