National League Game Summary - New York at Los Angeles



(Monday, August 12th)

Final Score: Los Angeles 4, New York 2

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Yasiel Puig's sacrifice fly capped a three- run sixth inning as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied past the New York Mets, 4-2, in the opener of a three-game set at Chavez Ravine.

Adrian Gonzalez had three hits and an RBI and Nick Punto clubbed a solo shot for the Dodgers, winners in six straight and 38 of their last 46 games dating back to June 22.

Ricky Nolasco (9-9) gave up two runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings to win his third straight start. Kenley Jansen stranded a pair of runners in the eighth and retired the side in order in the ninth to notch his 18th save of the season.

John Buck and Omar Quintanilla each had two hits and an RBI for the Mets, who had won five of six entering the contest.

Jenrry Mejia (1-2) allowed three runs -- two earned -- on six hits over six innings.

Carl Crawford and Mark Ellis hit back-to-back singles to open the home sixth. Gonzalez followed with a base hit to center to score Crawford. Mets center fielder Juan Lagares' throw to third bounced out of play to allow Ellis to come around. Puig followed with a sacrifice fly to left to plate the go-ahead run.

Punto added a homer to right in the seventh off Carlos Torres, just after the Mets left the bases full in the top half. Ronald Belisario caught Lagares looking at a questionable strike three and Paco Rodriguez retired Daniel Murphy on a line out to right.

"No chance that pitch was a strike," said Lagares.

Jansen struck out pinch-hitter Justin Turner with two men on in the eighth.

The Mets took a 2-0 lead in the second inning. With two on and no outs, Buck ripped a single to center to score Ike Davis. Quintanilla followed with a base hit through the hole on the right side to bring Wilmer Flores home.
