Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Matt Kemp and Luis Cruz both clubbed two-run
homers, as the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the New York Mets, 7-6, in
the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.
Andre Ethier, Juan Rivera and Jerry Hairston were also credited with an RBI
for the Dodgers, while starter Aaron Harang (7-5) gave up three runs -- one
earned -- on four hits and three walks in five innings.
Daniel Murphy collected four hits, including two doubles, and knocked in a run
for the Mets, who halted a six-game losing streak with Thursday's win at
Johan Santana (6-7) was tagged for six runs on seven hits and three walks in
three full frames. It marked the third straight start that the New York left-
hander has surrendered at least six runs.
