Pitching solid in Mets win

Rookie Edwin Jackson allowed two hits and struck out three while pitching three innings in his first win of the spring. He was followed by Tanyon Sturze, Darren Dreifort, Brian Falkenborg and Duaner Sanchez who closed things out to earn a save.

Bubba Trammell opened the game with a two-out home run, his second of the year. Dave Roberts made a good running catch and doubled a Met off second base to kill a potential rally in the last of the inning.

Cesar Izturis beat out an infield hit that scored Franklin Gutierrez in the second and an unearned run made it 3-0.

Sturze allowed a run in the fourth inning in relief of Jackson. Dreifort (1), Falkenborg (2) and Sanchez (1) kept things under control the rest of the game.

Los Angeles earned their final run in the top of the ninth when Eric Riggs doubled Gutierrez across.

Izturis and Trammel had a pair of hits each as the Dodgers improved to 8-12.
