Tylor Megill tossed seven scoreless innings, and Francisco Lindor smacked a two-run home run, but the bullpen collapsed again, allowing five unanswered runs. 

New York led 2-0 after seven innings, but Jake Diekman gave up a two-out run-scoring single to Freddie Freeman in the eighth, and Adam Ottavino allowed a game-tying bunt single in the ninth. After the Mets failed to walk it off, the Dodgers scored three in the 10th off Jorge López and held on for the victory.
