Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher, KENTA MAEDA, falls to ground in pain after being hit by a line drive by New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto. MAEDA was able to continue pitching and went on to pitch 5 innings allowing no runs and only 2 hits leading the Dodgers to a 9-1 victory.
Uploaded are 7 selected images from tonight’s Dodgers/Mets game at citiFIELD, won by the Dodgers 9-1. The game was driven by two major events: First, the ejection of Mets’ starting pitcher, Noah Syndergaard, for allegedly throwing a pitch behind Chase Utley on purpose, followed by the arguing and subsequent ejection of the New York Mets manager, Terry Collins. And secondly, the hitting barrage of Chase Utley, who hit two home runs, the second of which was a grand slam in the 7th inning.
These two events, coupled with strong pitching performance of Dodgers’ starting pitcher, Kenta Maeda, spelled victory for the Dodgers.
