Dodgers, Mets Could Have Short Bullpens In Series Finale

Kenley Jansen could be unavailable on Sunday after appearing in four straight games, over the last five days.

The Dodgers go for a sweep of the Mets on Sunday morning at Citi Field, and the series finale will feature a battle of teams likely with shortened bullpens.

The Mets have gotten three innings out of their starting pitcher in each of the first two games of this series, and were forced to use starter R.A. Dickey in the ninth inning on Saturday. New York recalled Elvin Ramirez from Triple A Buffalo before Sunday's game.
