Struggling Juan Uribe homered, doubled and drove in four runs to lead the Dodgers past the New York Mets, 8-5, on Saturday at Citi Field.
Uribe, hitting under .200, capped his day with a two-run home run in the ninth inning off knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, the Mets starter who leads the National League with 13 wins but was called on in relief.
For the second consecutive game the Dodgers chased the Mets' starting pitcher after only three innings, in this case veteran Miguel Batista. The Dodgers are now 2-0 on their 10-game trip.
Several Dodgers drove in runs besides Uribe, including Adam Kennedy, James Loney, Luis Cruz and Matt Treanor.
Dodgers starter and ex-Met Chris Capuano was solid if not stellar in earning his 10th win by holding his old teammates to three runs in seven innings, including a solo home run by Ronny Cedeno.
