Lux drives Dodgers over Mets, Starling Marte homers

Gavin Lux and the Los Angeles Dodgers managed to silence Timmy Trumpet, at least on Tuesday night, when they beat the New York Mets 4-3 in a matchup of the NL division leaders.

The Mets fell on a night when Trumpet met at Citi Field, who plays the song “Narco”, chosen by Puerto Rican Edwin Díaz to accompany his arrival on the mound in the games.

Trumpet was ready to do the live performance if the closer entered the game. But Diaz did not.

Instead, Trumpet played a version of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” in front of the Dodgers’ dugout during the seventh-inning break.

Minutes after the Mets fell in the first baseball game the Aussie Trumpet has ever attended, the entertainer said he would return to the park on Wednesday, awaiting another opportunity to play.

Lux drove in three runs, including one with a tiebreaking single in the seventh. The hit drove in Freddie Freeman and came on the heels of Joely Rodriguez (0-4) intentionally walking pinch-hitter Will Smith.

Heath Hembree (3-0), making his Dodgers debut, got the win by stranding two runners in the sixth inning when he fanned James McCann for the final out.

For the Dodgers, no Latin Americans hit.

For the Mets, Dominican Starling Marte 4-2 with a home run, one run scored and one produced. Puerto Rican Francisco Lindor 2-1. The Venezuelan Eduardo Escobar 4-2.
