ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett wasn't at his best but still won for the second consecutive time. He was charged with four runs and eight hits over five innings. Of the four runs, three came in the sixth inning on home runs by Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda. Beckett pitched his way out of trouble in the third and fourth innings. In the third inning, he had a man on second base with one out and prevented the Mets from scoring. In the fourth, he had the bases loaded with one out but struck out Daniel Murphy and forced David Wright to ground out.
AT THE PLATE: The Dodgers had 15 hits, including three each by Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig. Gonzalez hit his 11th home run of the season in the fifth inning, a two-run blast to center field that broke a 1-1 stalemate. Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford and Juan Uribe each had two hits.
ON THE MEND: Hyun-Jin Ryu remains scheduled to start Wednesday. To activate Ryu from the disabled list, the Dodgers will have to remove a player from the active roster. Manager Don Mattingly said the team still hasn't decided what it will do. The Dodgers could temporarily have an extra arm in the bullpen and play with a short bench if they place third baseman Uribe on the disabled list. Uribe strained his right hamstring.
UP NEXT: Ryu (3-2, 3.00) will face the Mets and Jaco DeGrom (0-1, 1.29) at Citi Field at 4 p.m. PDT. On the air: TV: SportsNet LA. Radio: 570, 1020 (Spanish).Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
