LOS ANGELES (AP) -Brad Penny allowed seven hits over seven innings and Los Angeles broke open a tight game with consecutive three-run innings against Jorge Sosa, handing New York its fifth straight loss, 9-1 on Wednesday night.
Penny (8-1) struck out seven and lowered his ERA to 2.18, second-best in the NL behind Jake Peavy's 1.82 for San Diego.
Wilson Betemit had a homer and an RBI single for the Dodgers, while James Loney hit a two-run homer and Rafael Furcal had two triples, one of which drove in a run.
The three-game sweep was the Dodgers' first over the Mets in Los Angeles since August 1996. New York ended its 10-game road trip with just one win.
Sosa (6-2) was charged with six runs and eight hits over 5 2-3 innings. He gave up three runs in both the fifth and sixth innings.
