Dodgers complete Mets sweep

"The Dodgers have won the first six and will go for the series sweep tonight just as soon as the network stooge down there says it's OK to play baseball", he ranted before opening pitch, which was slated for 8:05 but came a bit later.

That forced Lugo from the game, and thanks to a Yasiel Puig solo homer in the seventh, a Justin Turner solo shot in the eighth, and a Corey Seager two-run moonshot in the ninth, the Dodgers secured a 7-4 win over the Mets and their 43rd win in their last 50 games, the best 50-game stretch of any team since the 1912 New York Giants.

In this photo taken by the Associated Press on August 6, 2017, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin throws a pitch against the New York Mets during a Major League Baseball game at Citi Field in New York.

Ryu got off to a great start by striking out all three batters in the first and the first batter in the second.

Ryu gave the Mets the little town blues as he spun a one-hitter with eight strikeouts and no walks in the game. The early hit spared manager Dave Roberts the possible task of pulling Ryu, who hasn't pitched more than seven innings in an outing this year, with a no-hitter or ideal game intact. He issued no walks and lowered his ERA to 3.53 on the season.

The Dodgers could go 21-30 the rest of the way and still win 100 games for the first time since 1974. It just comes down to making better pitches when you're in those situations.

Ryu was cold at the plate as he struck out three times, but his Dodgers teammates were sharp.

The Dodgers have hit 96 home runs in the 50-game stretch more than any other team in baseball since the streak started on June 7, 2017. But in 24 1/3 postseason innings, including the time he was called upon to save the final game of the division series, he allowed 12 runs and had nothing left in Game 6 of the league championship, when he and the Dodgers were shut out 5-0 in Chicago as the Cubs punched their World Series ticket. Rather than lay such a ridiculous price on the best team in baseball, why not target the more reasonably priced runline, where the Dodgers have covered the 1.5 runs in 34 of their 47 home wins this season (.723). Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger each went yard with two RBIs, with Turner adding a double as part of his 2 for 4 day at the dish while Bellinger hit his team-leading 32nd homer of the season.

NY has dropped eight straight to the Dodgers dating to May 2016, the club's longest skid against Los Angeles since 1964.

Pitching coach Dan Warthen previously said Matz has been trying too hard during his starts, and his mechanics have not been in line. Throughout the game, Ryu threw a total of 22 cut fastballs, 17 changeups, 20 curves, four sliders and 33 four-seam fastballs.

"That's one game I'll never forget", said Herzog. He has been struggling to get his fastball velocity up to par.

"I feel no differently", Ryu said through his interpreter Sunday. Again, so far I think it's been something we know what he can do.

Offensively, the Mets could do nothing to buoy their beleaguered starter.

Nobody expected Ryu to be much of a factor for the Dodgers in 2017.

The Dodgers recently acquired Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish via trade, and Ryu said the addition of the Japanese right-hander pushes him to concentrate more on his games.
