Morning Rewind, 10/13: Mets mash, Dodgers face elimination

Cubs, Mets Take 2-1 Series Leads



By JOHN DORN

In the first-ever postseason game at their home ballpark, the 2015 New York Mets christened Citi Field like only they could: with a 13-run barrage -- a franchise playoff record -- en route to a crucial Game 3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The win pushes LA's backs against the wall, as they face elimination Tuesday night.

The night began hostile, with fans berating each and every Dodger during pregame intros -- until Chase Utley's turn came around. That's when the mood shifted from unwelcoming to downright scary, with 44,276 booing in unison -- the second baseman's face frozen bold and stoic if not contrite.



After a rocky start to Matt Harvey's night, the Mets shifted their anger into runs on the scoreboard -- pounding Brett Anderson for six runs on seven hits over just three innings. After four more runs were charged to Alex Wood and three more to Pedro Baez, the route was on.



The Mets will go up against Clayton Kershaw on three days rest, something he most recently did in Game 4 of last year's NLDS, and allowed three runs on six innings, taking the loss in the decisive game of that series.

Mets 13, Dodgers 7


Other Scores:

KC 9, HOU 6
They were mere innings from elimination, but the Kansas City Royals proved they had at least one more comeback in them. They trailed 6-2 in the eighth inning before Will Harris and Tony Sipp took the reigns and allowed five runs to cross the plate. Two more scores in the ninth inning, and the Royals had themselves an epic comeback win -- forcing a decisive Game 5 in Kansas City on Wednesday.

CHI 8, STL 6


At this point, we know who the Cubs are. They flat-out rake, and when Jake Arrieta's on the mound, good luck stopping them. Chicago smashed a playoff-record six home runs against the Cards, and despite a so-so outing from Arrieta, set up an elimination Game 4 for St. Louis at Wrigley.

TOR 8, TEX 4
They seemed dead in the water, having to face Texas at home twice, staving off elimination. But here we are. Toronto took their second straight down south and now head back to Rogers Centre to try and finish the job. Three early home runs off Derek Holland did the job, and Toronto now turns to Marcus Stroman to earn a trip to the ALCS.
