Mets Fall to Dodgers 8-5

AP

Juan Uribe broke out of a long slump with a homer and four RBIs, Chris Capuano pitched seven solid innings against his former team and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the staggering New York Mets 8-5 on Saturday.

 
Uribe hit an early two-run double to end a 1-for-38 slide. He added a two-run homer in the ninth inning off 13-game winner R.A. Dickey, who was making his first relief appearance of the season to help an overtaxed Mets bullpen.
 
Matt Treanor also stopped a slump with a run-scoring hit and the Dodgers won their third straight following a 1-7 skid. Matt Kemp had an RBI triple and Capuano (10-5) struck out nine for his first victory in seven career starts against the Mets.
 
Los Angeles chased 41-year-old spot starter Miguel Batista (1-3) after three innings, getting into baseball's worst bullpen early for the second consecutive game. Both times, the Dodgers built a comfortable cushion and held on at the end.
