Dodgers beat Mets 3-2 on Thompson's pinch-hit homer in 9th
LOS ANGELES (AP) Pinch-hitter Trayce Thompson connected for a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night.
Thompson fought back from an 0-2 count against Hansel Robles (0-2) to get to 2-2 before homering into the left-field pavilion, snapping the Dodgers' four-game skid against the Mets.
Thompson's two-run drive accounted for the Dodgers' only runs in a 4-2 loss in the series opener Monday night.
Kenley Jansen (1-0) worked a scoreless inning for the win.
Chase Utley started against the Mets for the first time since the NL playoffs last year, when his takeout slide broke Ruben Tejada's leg. He went 1 for 4.
