NY Mets defeat LA Dodgers 7-3. Both Madonna in 2002 and the Dodgers in New York were Swept Away and both were epically horrific. The Dodgers brought up John Ely from Albuquerque to pitch in his first Major League game, and aside from a particularly bad second inning when he gave up four runs thanks to his questionable fielding choices. The Dodgers scored one run in the third inning thanks to throwing error by shortstop Jose Reyes and two in fifth on a Russell Martin homer. Ronald Belisario came on in relief in the seventh inning and gave up two more runs. The Dodgers now at 8-13 are tied with the Atlanta Braves with the worst record in the National League. Only the Baltimore Orioles at 4-17 have a worse record in all of baseball.
