After three days against someone else, it’s right back at it with the Dodgers — this time in LA.

The Mets are back at .500 following Wednesday’s extra-inning victory over the best team in baseball, the San Francisco Giants.

The Amazin’s were in danger of getting swept and losing their sixth straight game, but thanks to a four-run 12th inning, New York escaped San Fran with a 6-2 win.

The schedule doesn’t get much easier; the Mets will head down the coast to Los Angeles for a four-game stint with the Dodgers starting Thursday.
