RECAP: Los Angeles Dodgers Drop Game 1 vs Mets, 4-2
Things got off to a rough start for Scott Kazmir tonight when he gave up a solo home run on the very first pitch of the game to Curtis Granderson.

Kazmir’s struggles continued into the second where he gave up another solo shot, and the Mets added one more in the third. Yasiel Puig made a great defensive play to help keep the damage in the early going minimal.
The Dodgers offense had come up completely dry until Trayce Thompson brought them back into the game with one swing of the bat off of Mets starter Steven Matz.

But ultimately the Dodgers offense failed to do anything else on the night, as things ended quietly, 4-2.

Both starters earn decisions tonight as Scott Kazmir picks up the loss for the Dodgers, and Steven Matz gets the win for the Mets. The Dodgers hope to see Alex Wood (1-3) rebound tomorrow as he will face Jacob DeGrom (3-1) at 7:10pm.
