Mr. Wright Mr. Wrong For Dodgers: Mets 8, Dodgers 4

David Wright pounded two dingers off Brad Penny, who should by now be just nibbling on guys like that. On the other hand, the first homer was a cookie that any major leaguer should be able to hit. The other homer came on an improbable two-out rally in the fourth, sparked by a reach on catcher's interference by pitcher Claudio Vargas, the first against the Dodgers since an 11-3 blowout in Florida on May 12, 2002.

The Dodgers' bullpen turned out to be leaky, too, as both Scott Proctor and Joe Beimel gave up an earned run apiece. What I didn't understand is why the Dodgers felt obliged to pull Hong-Chih Kuo from the mound after his scoreless two 1-2-3 innings in the fifth and sixth.

The good news: the offense came around a bit, as Jeff Kent and Blake DeWitt both homered.
