Lather, Rinse, Re-Beat: Dodgers 11, Mets 2
The Dodgers jumped on Hernandez early for four runs in the first, and cruised after that; Jerry Manuel left him in to self-immolate for eight of the eleven runs, none of which came on a home run. I don't envy the Mets; they're a bad team this year partly because of the spectrum of injuries, but then, that's one of the consequences of building so much through free agency, too.
Minor sub-story: Randy Wolf changed his number to 43, his number while with the Phillies; in his first stint with the Dodgers he was 52, and started this year as 21. I doubt the Mets much cared.
