Will Smith went 1-for-4 with a home run on Saturday as the Dodgers defeated the Mets.

Michael Conforto went 1-for-4 with a home run Saturday versus the Dodgers. The Mets outfielder had been battling a slump recently but has come alive over the last seven days batting .381/.409/.762 with two home runs.
