The Dodgers want to sweep while the Mets just want a W

After managing the Los Angeles Dodgers Because Dave Roberts earned a playoff berth in each of his first seven seasons, he can treat this period like any other period immediately after the All-Star break

The slingshot New York Mets don’t have that luxury – and back-to-back disheartening losses for the dodgers have heightened the urgency for a team at risk of being eliminated from the playoff race

The dodgers will attempt to complete a three-game sweep meads on Sunday afternoon when Los Angeles visits New York in the final game of the regular season between the clubs

Bobby Miller (5-1, 4.50 ERA) is scheduled to start for the dodgers against Max Scherzer (8-3, 4.31) in a right-hander match

Mookie Betts hit a home run and finished Saturday night’s game with four hits when David Peralta kicked off the RBI by defeating a potential double-play grounder in the eighth inning of the game dodgers‘ 5-1 win

The win was the sixth in a row for the dodgerswho have won 4 1/2 games in National League West standings since July 5 — ranging from 2 1/2 games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks to a two-game lead —

The dodgers outperformed their opponent 43-16 during the winning streak. The thoroughness continued Saturday as Betts completed his third four-hit game of the season and five pitchers combined a three-hitter

“I think I’m lucky to have a group of players who understand the importance of every game, to be completely honest with you,” Roberts said Saturday afternoon. “I think our boys have a superpower that we’re going to play as hard tonight as we did on (Friday) night. And we will do the same in September.”

The meadsThe recent losing streak — they’ve lost four straight 20-4 aggregate and conceded just 12 hits in that span — sharpened their rise to meaningful baseball in September

New York, which has suffered eight losses in at least three games this season, is nine games behind the San Francisco Giants in the race for third and final NL wildcard spot.

Errors tracked that meads in the last two innings on Saturday night. Pete Alonso threw high to second base on Peralta’s grounder, forcing Francisco Lindor to jump and then come back to touch second base before firing a late shot to first base

Betts scored the first goal dodgers‘ three runs in the ninth when rookie Brett Baty was charged with a fault after Max Muncy’s pop-up deviated from foul territory into fair territory and off his glove

“Not good enough. I don’t know how else to really say it,” said losing pitcher Adam Ottavino about it meads‘ last stretch. “When it comes to team play, it’s about wins and losses and we’ve lost the last four games. So that’s not what we want to achieve.”

Miller has not pitched since July 5, when he earned the win after giving up four runs over 5 2/3 innings dodgers defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4. The rookie has never spoken out against it meads

Scherzer suffered defeat on his last start on July 9, when he allowed five runs over five innings meads lost 6-2 to the San Diego Padres. He is 5-5 with a 2.51 ERA in 17 career games (15 starts) against the dodgers
