After the New York Mets cost themselves the night before against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road, New York wanted to find a way to bounce back in the second game of a four-game on Tuesday night. With the game tied at two in the top of the seventh-inning, Michael Conforto hit his first career grand slam off of Scott Alexander and it was one of the reasons why the Mets took down Los Angeles 7-3.
Conforto also had a check swing RBI in the top of the third-inning. The Dodgers tried to throw out Steven Matz at home plate, but they couldn’t.
Cody Bellinger hit a two-run homer off of Matz in the bottom of the third-inning.
Todd Frazier tied the game at two on a solo home run in the top of the fourth-inning off of Rich Hill.
In the bottom of the seventh-inning, Matt Beaty had an RBI single for Los Angeles. He came in the game for David Freese.
Amed Rosario had an RBI triple for New York in the top of the eighth-inning.
Steven Matz (4-3) was the winning pitcher for the New York Mets. He pitched six innings and gave up four hits and two runs. Matz also walked three batters and struck out six.
Yimi Garcia (0-2) was the losing pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He didn’t record an out and gave up one run and one walk.
Rich Hill had a solid start for Los Angeles by pitching six innings and giving up six hits and two runs. Hill walked one batter and struck out six.
The probable pitchers for Wednesday night’s contest in Los Angeles will be Noah Syndergaard (3-4, 4.93 ERA) for the Mets and Walker Buehler (5-1, 3.58 ERA) for the Dodgers.
