Five Takeaways from Sunday's game
1) Zack Wheeler was great once again, striking out nine and allowing just one earned run on six hits. The righty threw 97 pitches over seven innings of work. This makes it four-straight starts that Wheeler has allowed one earned run and no home runs.
2) Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-3 from the plate with a two-run triple... it was his first triple of the season.
3) The drought continues for Pete Alonso, who coming into the game was on a 0-for-16 stretch. He went 0-for-4 with a strikeout against the Dodgers.
4) After getting the save on Saturday night, Justin Wilson struggled in the eighth inning tonight. He walked two batters in addition to throwing a wild pitch and registering a balk. Wilson allowed one earned run that tied the game at 2-2. In the ninth, Seth Lugo allowed an RBI single to Jedd Gyorko that gave the Dodgers their first lead of the day at 3-2.
5) Walker Buehler retired the last 11 Mets batters he faced, as the righty allowed just two earned runs on two hits. He only threw 71 pitches in the outing, and struck out one to go along with two walks.
