NEW YORK (AP) - Curtis Granderson drove in five runs, Yoenis Cespedes homered into the second deck and the New York Mets overcame Matt Harvey's early struggles to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-7 Monday night for a 2-1 lead in the NL Division Series.

Travis d'Arnaud also homered as the Mets set a franchise postseason record for runs in their first playoff game at Citi Field.

Mets rookie left-hander Steven Matz tries to close out the series Tuesday night, when the visiting Dodgers send NL MVP Clayton Kershaw to the mound on three days’ rest. Kershaw has lost five straight postseason starts.

Harvey fell behind 3-0 in the second inning before the Mets broke loose.

Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley, jeered by the crowd after breaking the leg of Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada in Game 2, was eligible to play while appealing his two-game suspension, but did not get in.
