Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Pinch-hitter Matt Treanor broke a 12th-inning
tie with a two-run single and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game
sweep of the New York Mets with an 8-3 win at Citi Field.
James Loney hit a leadoff single to spark a five-run 12th inning for the
Dodgers, who squandered a one-run lead in the ninth. Tony Gwynn, Jr. then
dropped down a bunt to advance the runner and wound up beating the throw for
an infield single.
After Mark Ellis failed on his bunt attempt by popping out to New York
reliever Ramon Ramirez (2-2), Gwynn was erased at second on a fielder's
choice. Ramirez then intentionally walked Andre Ethier to load the bases and
Treanor delivered off the bench with a grounder up the middle. Luis Cruz
followed with an RBI single and Adam Kennedy added a two-run double, helping
secure the Dodgers' first three-game sweep against the Mets in New York since
August 16-18, 2002.
The loss dropped the Mets (47-48) below .500 for the first time this season.
