Utley remains a pain for Mets

Even after leaving the NL East, Chase Utley continues to be a thorn in the Mets' side. Utley's two homers on Saturday give him 38 for his career against New York, far and away his most by opponent.

While fans packing Citi Field for ESPN Sunday Night Baseball undoubtedly will give Chase Utley an earful, it's extremely likely the episode is history.

As expected, no Mark Teixeira in today's Yankees lineup. Also, Carlos Beltran, who suffered some discomfort near his shoulder blade, will not play, nor will Chase Headley, just because. Here's the Yankees lineup that will face RHP Jake Odorizzi and the Rays today at 1:10 pm; Ellsbury cf, Gardner lf, Castro 2b, McCann c, Rodriguez DH, Gregorius ss, Hicks rf, Ackley 1b, Torreyes 3b, Eovaldi P

The Dodgers' Chase Utley wasn't surprised the Mets sought retribution this far into the season series, and he's not ruling out the same thing in the series finale Sunday.

The Dodgers' Chase Utley said he understood if the Mets were throwing at him Saturday. He was more interested in talking about a 9-1 victory and how Kenta Maeda threw five scoreless innings after getting hit in the hand with a line drive.

Utley strikes back, leads Dodgers over Mets (1:31)

Noah Syndergaard insisted the pitch was not on purpose. Terry Collins concerned about discipline from league. Collins said he told pitchers in LA earlier this month not to do anything that might draw retaliation and get Mets batters hurt. Collins didn't even mention it before this series and said umpires didn't even know about history until after this series began.

Utley gets revenge with Grand Slam (0:29)

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

How do you respond when a team throws a pitch behind your back? For Chase Utley it would be to hit two home runs, including a grand slam against the Mets. The Dodgers' infielder has five RBIs in seven innings to help his team to a 6-0 lead.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda recovered impressively after taking a line drive off his right hand in the first inning. He gave up no runs on two hits to the Mets and was removed after five innings, having thrown 75 pitches.

Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda has been in complete control since getting hit on the right hand/wrist by a line drive in the first inning. The Mets are 0-for-10 since as Maeda has pitched four shutout innings.
