Game Preview: Dodgers vs Mets

Well the Mets sometimes troll their own fans, and that’s what happened last night. The Mets had a great start from Harvey but the offense went off the the handle scoring 15 runs including two homers from Duda, a homer from Murphy and a homer from the newest Met, Kelly Johnson. They are going to need that offense today as they go up against Zack Greinke and his impressive scoreless streak.
