Mets 6, Dodgers 5

The boys mounted a rally in the ninth, putting runners on first and third with one out, but then the lineup got down to a couple of guys with numbers in the 80-plus range (i.e, guys borrowed from minor-league camp), and it was lights out. But Andre Ethier finally broke out of his slump, snapping his hitless streak at 23 at-bats with a double in the fifth off Tom Glavine and a single in the seventh off Ambiorix Burgos. Meanwhile, Grady said after the game he thought Penny looked really good, despite the fact his pitch count (76) got him only through four innings because of all the walks. And, it looks like Furcal might be ready for opening day. It’s all falling into place, it seems. Dodgers fell to 16-12.
