Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets, second game of the series, the Mets surprisingly won the first game 2-4, some say it was luck, but Jacob deGrom’s work was genuine and almost perfect, he could contain the Dodgers from the first inning. The Dodgers were also hitting the ball hard, but they could not score more than two runs, the Mets tied the game and then went up on the scoreboard.
Los Angeles Dodgers: Nobody hurts us at home.
The Dodgers know that the Mets are inferior, but losing the first game of this series was not easy to assimilate, since the Mets are not a team with many victories on the road, but the first game is already history. Before this series the Dodgers won a long series of four games against the Diamondbacks 3-1 and the series against the Padres 3-0. This season the Dodgers have been swept twice at home, the most recent being against the Cardinals 3-0 and the first time against the Rockies in June. In the last 10 games the Dodgers have a 6-4 record.
Rich Hill, a 14-year veteran, with the Dodgers this season has been decent, 6 wins and only 5 losses, 3.59 ERA. Hill has performed well, although last year was much better for him. Hill’s last home win was against the Padres on August 24, and Hill has a 3-2 record in the last five home games.
New York Mets: We are not afraid.
The Mets on the road have a record of 34 wins and 34 defeats, 50% effective. This year there are no chances of playoffs for the team, but that has not stopped them from winning good series against the heavier teams. Prior to this series they won against the Giants 1-2 and the series against the Cubs ended with a win for each and a 1-1 draw of the few in the MLB so far. 6-3-1 in the last 10 games for the Mets, but August was one of the best months for the Mets.
Jason Vargas, a 13-year veteran, has a record of 5 wins and 8 losses this season, pitching for .385. Last season was his best season as a professional 18-11. The last victory of Vargas with the Mets was in August against the Cubs 10-3, plus the record in the last four games for him is 2-2.
