There will be a Game 5 as the Mets could not muster any offense one night after exploding for 13 runs in their last game and they fell to the Dodgers, 3-1.
Clayton Kershaw was too much to handle, even pitching on three days rest. He limited the Mets to just three hits and one run over seven innings. Kershaw found his strikeout groove mid game, as he notched outs via the whiff in six of seven outs starting with the last out in the fourth. He finished with eight punchouts.
Daniel Murphy supplied the only offense with a homer to right field.
The series moves back to LA for the deciding fifth game and the Mets will turn to Jacob deGrom in their hopes to move on to the NLCS.
