Post-Game 86 Thread: Late Fireworks Doom Rubby, Dodgers

METS 5, DODGERS 2

Rubby De La Rosa had the Mets no-hit through five innings, with the Dodgers nursing a 2-0 lead thanks to two James Loney RBI singles, each of which scored Matt Kemp (twice). But the sixth inning served up three run-scoring doubles for the Mets, and that was all she wrote (except for two more runs tacked on by the Mets off of Scott Elbert and Matt Guerrier in the eighth inning). Rafael Furcal and Andre Ethier each went 0-for-4 in the two- and three-holes to ensure the Dodgers' offense never had a chance.

As I write this now, I hear the explosions of fireworks outside, perhaps echoing from over Dodger Stadium. I'm pretty sure this isn't post-game BP for the home team.

it's not like Dre going for 0-4 is bad for the Dodgers, it hurts my fantasy team
