LOS ANGELES (AP) -Wilson Betemit, Matt Kemp and Hong-Chih Kuo homered on three consecutive pitches for the Dodgers off New York Mets starter John Maine with one out in the second inning Tuesday night.
Betemit hit an 0-1 pitch over the left-center field fence for his sixth homer, Kemp drove Maine's next pitch just inside the left field foul pole for his first, and pitcher Kuo followed by hitting the first homer of his career into the right field pavilion to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead.
The last time a team hit three homers on as many pitches occurred last Sept. 18 on the last three of the four straight hit by the Dodgers in the bottom of the ninth inning in an 11-10, 10-inning victory over San Diego.
The Mets hadn't allowed three straight homers since April 1, 1997, and five days ago they hit back-to-back-to-back homers against Philadelphia.
Kemp's homer was the first to reach the loge level since July 27, 2005 when Olmedo Saenz accomplished the feat against Cincinnati.
Betemit's blow was estimated at 408 feet; Kemp's went 447 feet, and Kuo's went 412 feet.
