New York Mets continued their winning streak, posting six straight victories as they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4

Starling Marte hit a crucial three-run homer in the sixth inning to give the New York Mets the lead, while first baseman Pete Alonso made an impressive play to stop the Dodgers’ rally in the same inning. This helped the Mets secure a 6–4 win over the struggling Los Angeles Dodgers, extending their winning streak to six games.

Despite a rough start to the season in which they lost their first five games, the Mets have turned things around and won their fifth consecutive series. They have been on fire lately, winning twelve of their last fifteen games.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers are struggling to find their rhythm at the plate.

They have lost seven of their last nine games and struggled to capitalize on scoring opportunities in this game, going just 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position and leaving 13 runners on base.

This is the first time since June that they have lost three consecutive series, and the first time since August 2018 that they have lost three consecutive series at home.

Despite issuing 10 walks, the most they have given up since August 15, the Mets were able to secure the victory. Reed Garrett, who secured his first big-league save after previously earning 39 saves in the minors and two in Japan, struck out to end the game and seal the victory for the Mets.
