Dodgers: Lessons learned from a weekend series in NY
The Dodgers entered their final east coast trip of the regular season looking to finish strong against a team in wildcard contention.
The Dodgers’ series with the Mets was not a good exhibition of playoff caliber baseball but they were able to come home to Los Angeles with a series victory. LA won the first and last game of the series and they were dominated by Jacob deGrom in the middle game of the series. All in all, the blue were able to do just enough to win a series against a quality opponent battling for their playoff lives.
With the conclusion of their series with the New York Mets, the Dodgers are done going to the east coast, at least for the duration of the regular season. After hosting the Rays for a mini two game series on Tuesday and Wednesday, the rest of the Dodgers’ schedule will be against their NL West opponents.
Here are three lessons learned from the weekend series in New York.
