July 23: Dodgers 3, Mets 0
Kershaw nearly no-hit a Mets lineup that featured John Mayberry Jr. and Eric Campbell as the four and five hitters, and the Dodgers took the series opener at Citi Field. The Flushing faithful let notorious Met killer Jimmy Rollins hear it after a third-inning home run gave the Dodgers the lead.
