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.
