Mets 6, Dodgers 1
Joe Torre takes the ball from Hiroki Kuroda after the hurler faced nine hitters in the third. (AP)
Hiroki Kuroda endured his shortest start of the season, allowing six runs on seven hits -- including a pair of two-run home runs -- in 2 2/3 innings. The Dodgers amassed just six hits -- three by Matt Kemp -- and Kemp's RBI single in the first inning accounted for their lone run.
