The Mets snapped their three-game losing streak in sunny Los Angeles Friday night with a slim 2-1 victory over the Dodgers.
The Mets really are quite amazing (no pun intended). Four of their last five victories have come with them scoring just two runs. It is a testament to their superb pitching.
Friday it was Noah Syndergaard going six innings, allowing just one run. The Mets managed a run off of Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning. And then in the ninth, a sacrifice fly won the game for the Mets.
The win leaves the Mets a game above .500, three and a half games behind the first place Nationals. They are still within striking distance.
But to be serious, the Mets will have to figure out a way to score more than two runs a game.
