The Dodgers will begin a three-game series with the New York Mets.  After playing the Orioles, this will be a far more intriguing series.

Coming off a series against the lowly Orioles, the Dodgers will have a far more intriguing series in the big apple.  The Mets are currently two games back of the second wildcard spot so every game is crucial to them.  The Dodgers may not be playing for a playoff spot, but they are playing for playoff seeding with the Braves only trailing them by a few games for NL home field.

For the Dodgers, this series will give them a chance to bounce back especially starting pitching wise.  Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu have been in a slump recently and they will look to get strong starts under their belt to get some momentum going heading into the postseason.  Ryu is also still fighting for the NL Cy Young award.  Here is a preview of each game in the three-game series.
