by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:10 pm ET) Mets rookie starter Steven Matz showed no signs of a sophomore slump in his second start Sunday, dominating the Dodgers over six innings to improve to 2-0 as New York rolled to a win.

Pham's homer barely cleared the wall in left-center, and he stopped at second base thinking it was a double before beingn waved around. He also scored both runs in Saturday's win.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
