Dodgers Over Mets 9-5; Win Streak Stopped At Three

John Maine wasn’t impressive tonight giving up three runs in the first inning. He did settle down and make it through six innings but it was a rocky start.

Luis Castillo left the game after turning a double play and the early word is that he has a strained hip flexor. I can’t believe we still have 3.5 more years of him with the Mets.

Russell Martin killed the Mets tonight going 4 for 4 with 3 runs and 3 RBI’s. The Dodgers 20 year old starter Clayton Kershaw wasn’t great tonight in his second big league start. But you can see that he’s got some talent with a good fastball and big 12-6 curve.

The game got out of hand due to Aaron Heilman once again. He had a few good outings but reverted back tonight giving up four runs without getting an out on four straight hits. Overall it was an ugly game for the Mets pitchers.

Box score

On Deck: May 30- Dodgers At Mets

Los Angeles Dodgers (26-27) at New York Mets (26-26) 7:10pm

Clayton Kershaw (0-0) vs. John Maine (5-4)


What to watch: Kershaw is a 20 year old lefty with a mid-90’s fastball and a nasty curveball. I sure hope Delgado is on the bench again tonight. He has no chance of hitting this guy. Maine went a solid six innings in his last start in Colorado despite taking the loss. This game looks like a pitching duel to me.
