Andre Ethier extends hit streak to 30, Dodgers extend losing streak to three


Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 30 games, and that was the lone bright spot in a game that found the Met's doubling up on the Dodgers 6 - 3.  The Dodgers outhit the Met's 10 - 9 but 9 of the hits were the typical single, while the Mets racked up a home run, two triples, and a double. 

The Dodgers struck first in the first using singles by Sands, Andre, and Kemp. The single has become their weapon of choice which explains why they are in the upper tier of hits and the lower tier in runs scored. The Mets wasted no time in tying the game when Reyes led off with a triple and eventually scored on Beltran's SF.

Golden Rod put the Dodgers back up front with another solo home run, but once again the Met's tied the game in the bottom of the second  on a solo home run by Ike Davis.  In the top of the fifth the Dodgers  took the lead for the third and last time via a walk to Carroll, single by Andre, walk to Kemp, and a ground ball by Uribe. 

With the score 3 - 2, the Met's struck for three runs in the bottom of the sixth when career minor league Jason Pridie slugged a three home run. The Mets scored one more run in the seventh off of Hawksworth to make 6 - 3. 

Kenley Jansen pitched the eighth striking out the side while allowing two base runners. 

Jose Reyes had two triples, and a double to lead the Met attack but it was the home run by Pridie that was the dagger in the heart of Kuroda. 

Tomorrow Andre goes for 31 straight to tie the 3-Dog for the longest streak in Dodger.
