Dodgers vs. Mets Details
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets
After the Brooklyn Dodgers left New York to become the Los Angeles Dodgers, the New York Mets became a replacement of sorts for New York baseball fans who did not want to cheer for the Yankees. While the relationship between these two teams is mostly built on respect, with the Mets paying homage to the Dodgers in many ways in their home ballpark, there have been plenty of heated moments between the two sides that make the rivalry between the Mets and Dodgers noteworthy.
This rivalry kicked into gear in the 1960s, and has flared up frequently since then, with both teams often contending for the same National League championships. Key players involved included greats like Sandy Koufax for the Dodgers, as well as the rambunctious Mets teams of the 1980s that included Darryl Strawberry, David Cone, and Doc Gooden.
Historic Mets vs. Dodgers Games
A May 1962 meeting between the Mets and Dodgers was historic not just because it was a great game, but because it was a rare game in which Sandy Koufax struggled. The legendary pitcher gave up six runs in that game, but the Dodgers still found a way to win the game, pounding out 13 runs to earn a 13-6 victory. Koufax managed to get revenge on the Mets for his poor start later in the season, when he threw a no-hitter against them.
Game 1 of the 1988 NLCS was not only an exciting and competitive game, but featured some elite post-game trash talk from Mets pitcher David Cone. The Mets won the game by a score of 3-2, but the real story came in the newspaper shortly after the game, and not just from a reporter detailing what happened in the matchup. Cone, who wrote a regular guest column in the Daily News, disparaged Dodgers closer Jay Howell, comparing his off-speed pitches to those of a high school player. The Dodgers didn't find this amusing, and took it out on Cone with five runs in the first two innings of Game 2.
The 2006 NLDS was a sweep for the Mets over the Dodgers, but Game 1 was a wild contest from start to finish. New York won the game 6-5, but it was a play at home plate early in the game that made the headlines. On a double by the Dodgers, both Jeff Kent and JD Drew tried to score, with a throw to home plate getting there before both of them. The only problem was that they arrived at home plate seconds apart, allowing Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca to tag both players out.
