|Game 3 Breakdown|
Shawn Green. The Mets' right fielder beat up on his former team with a 3-for-5 night, driving in a pair of runs with two doubles and a single as part of New York's 14-hit attack.
The NLDS hasn't been kind to the Dodgers. They have won only one series and lost four -- in dramatic fashion.
Jeff Kent had eight hits in the series. Only one player had more hits in a postseason series that lasted three games: Fernando Vina had nine hits for the Cardinals in a three-game sweep of the Diamondbacks in the 2002 NLDS.
