Kevin Plawecki drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, rookie Noah Snydergaard dueled reigning NL MVP Clayton Kershaw on even terms, and the New York Mets beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Friday night.

Lucas Duda blooped a double just inside the left field line leading off the ninth against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen (2-1). Wilmer Flores followed with a single that bounced off Jansen’s glove as the right-hander tried to backhand the ball. Duda then scored on Plawecki’s fly out to center field.

Hansel Robles (2-2) pitched two scoreless innings for the victory and Jeurys Familia pitched a perfect ninth for his 22nd save in 24 chances.

Snydergaard remained winless in five starts on the road despite allowing one run and just two hits over six innings with six strikeouts and two walks.
