LOS ANGELES -- The Game 5 National League Division Series showdown between the Dodgers and Mets featured an action-packed first inning, as Los Angeles generated a pair of runs on four consecutive one-out singles after a video review helped New York open the scoring. The Mets prevailed, 3-2, to advance to the NL Championship Series against the Cubs.
deGrom escaped further trouble by fanning Yasmani Grandal and Kiké Hernandez.
In the top of the first, an overturned umpires' decision following a video review opened the game and helped give the Mets an instant run.
Mets leadoff batter Curtis Granderson created the break by tapping a 1-2 pitch between the mound and first base. Dodgers starter Zack Greinke tried to scoop up the ball, but it slithered under his glove. Third baseman Turner, the closest Dodger to the ball in Los Angeles' overshifted defensive alignment, pounced on it and made an off-balance yet strong throw. Following the video review, which consumed one minute and three seconds, the "out" call on the field was overturned.
Granderson scored one out later on Daniel Murphy's double to left-center field. On the hit, Murphy went to third on an error by left fielder Hernandez. Murphy was stranded as Greinke struck out Yoenis Cespedes and Lucas Duda.
