Mets Radio Broadcaster Fed Up With ESPN-Delayed Start

  • Los Angeles Dodgers make history on Saturday against Mets

Ryu Hyun-jin combined with two relievers on a one-hitter Sunday night as the Los Angeles Dodgers continued their historic rampage by completing a three-game sweep of the New York Mets with an 8-0 win. The hit was an opposite-field single by Travis d'Arnaud leading off the third.

Steven Matz continues to be another liability for this Mets pitching staff, allowing five runs, six hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

"I don't think we will let that happen - because we don't want it to happen", he said. And how, Matz is crumbling and quickly losing his status as an elite starting pitcher for the Mets and in the National League. "It's going to be really fun when we get him back".

With an impotent NY offense, Hyun-Jin Ryu would sail through, allowing just one hit and striking out eight, in seven innings as the Mets would lose 8-0. He threw 96 pitches, his most in a start since June 17 and a total he matched or exceeded just five times in his first 15 starts this season.

"That's one game I'll never forget", said Herzog.

Turner's caught stealing turned into a two-out stolen base when a video review determined he reached around Amed Rosario to evade the rookie shortstop's tag.

Joe Sheehan adds that the Dodgers are 68-19 when rookie Cody Bellinger starts. Turner and Bellinger pulled off an uncontested double steal on a 1-and-1 pitch to Logan Forsythe.

"They raise hell about the wild-card winning too many times", said Herzog. "You could say that's probably the turning point of the game". Half of Bellinger's home runs have come in the seventh inning or later (Sunday's came in the eighth). It was only two years ago that the Mets ousted the Dodgers in the NLDS, but now the gap between the teams couldn't be much wider.

England v South Africa: fourth Test, day three
He picked up the wicket of Dean Elgar for a duck before lunch, trapping the South African opener lbw with just his third delivery. Getting mocked by his captain Joe Root , as his Yorkshire and England team-mate mocked his celebratory wave to the crowd.


That's the best 50-game run by a big league team since the 1912 New York Giants compiled the same mark from May 14 to July 3. "And that's all that matters". But the Dodgers still have 51 games to play - almost a third of the season - before they can get on with the real business of trying to actually win that championship. Matz was overmatched Sunday night and it seems that every team right now is no match for the 79-32 Los Angeles Dodgers.

"That's why they've got the record they do", manager Terry Collins said. Also, as of late, the starters have started to go deeper more consistently than they did early on.

Souza gave Tampa Bay its first walk-off homer since May 2014 when he hit the second pitch of the ninth from Jacob Barnes (3-3) over the left field wall.

The left-hander has now thrown at least five innings and held his opponents to two earned runs or fewer in each of his past six starts.

Steven Matz has had to do a fair amount of pitching with a exhausted arm and even while in pain at times.

NOTES: Mets RF/1B Jay Bruce (stiff neck) sat out a second straight game. Give the wild-card victor the third game at home and the other four games you play at the team with the best record.

Herzog, noting how the Dodgers managed to win the division last year when Kershaw was out for so long, gave credit to manager Dave Roberts, who was in his first year then. Roberts also said ace LHP Clayton Kershaw (back) would meet the Dodgers in Arizona.

Matz said, "I was staying composed".
