MLB: JUL 14 Dodgers at Mets

Julio Urías combined with three relievers on a one-hitter as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the New York Mets 6-0 Friday night.

The left-hander pitched six innings and allowed only a leadoff double to Brandon Nimmo that was initially ruled a home run. Mookie Betts hit a bases-loaded RBI single and Freddie Freeman followed with a two-run double after the Dodgers were held hitless by Justin Verlander (3-5) for 4 1/3 innings despite drawing six walks.

Miguel Rojas added an RBI single in the sixth off David Peterson as the Dodgers won their fifth straight and 13th in 18 games. All-Star slugger J.D. Martinez padded the lead in the eighth with his 23rd homer and Will Smith capped the scoring with a groundout in the ninth.

Nimmo opened with a drive that initially appeared to clear the right-field fence in front of New York’s bullpen. After replays showed the ball hit the top of the wall, the call was overturned to a double.

Urías (7-5) permitted three more baserunners. He walked Pete Alonso to put two on in the first before retiring Starling Marte.

Urías hit Marte with a pitch before striking out Jeff McNeil to end the fourth, and retired Nimmo to end the fifth two batters after rookie Brett Baty reached on catcher’s interference.

Shohei Ohtani's RBI double in ninth inning helps Dodgers rally for streak-ending win in Detroit

Verlander walked two in the first inning and issued another walk in the second. He issued free passes to Jason Heyward, Josh Outman and Rojas after left fielder Mark Canha opened the inning by making a sliding catch on David Peralta.

Betts followed the walks with a single that caromed off Canha’s glove as he charged in to attempt a catch. Two pitches later, Freeman sliced a double to right for a 3-0 lead.

Verlander allowed three runs and two hits in five innings. He heard boos coming off the mound in the fifth and his six walks were one shy of his career high set Aug. 16, 2006, in his rookie season with Detroit at Boston.

Yency Almonte pitched a 1-2-3 seventh, including a strikeout of a visibly frustrated McNeil. Caleb Ferguson worked a perfect eighth and Ryan Brasier finished it.

The Mets lost their third straight after opening July with six consecutive wins.

I’m so excited,” Quintana said. … RHP Max Scherzer will start Sunday after dealing with a stiff neck. … LHP T.J. McFarland was designated for assignment.
