Mets 1, Dodgers 0

Rick Asadoorian, a non-roster right-hander, had a rough ninth inning, giving up a one-out single to Michel Abreu followed by Daniel Murphy’s double. Asadoorian then walked Ezequiel Carrera on four pitches to load the bases (the first pitch was a pitchout) and hit Brady Clark to force in the winning run. Other than that, it was a good day for Dodgers pitching, as Brad Penny, Chan Ho Park and Hong-Chih Kuo each pitched two scoreless innings and allowed a total of two hits, and Justin Orenduff and Jonathan Meloan followed with a hitless inning each. The Dodgers played great defense, especially 3B Andy LaRoche, SS Chin-lung Hu and 2B Delwyn Young, who made a series of great plays all afternoon. Dodgers had just two hits on the day, both of them in the fourth inning, and one of those might have been caught if Marlon Anderson and Ryan Church hadn’t collided chasing Andruw Jones popup just inside the rightfield line. Both left the game, Anderson with a bruised chest and Church with a concussion.
