New York Mets
, while Los Angeles remained three games behind Arizona in the West.
''It's great for the team,'' said Feliz, who didn't even start the game. ''This was a big win.''

''Too many missed opportunities,'' Dodgers manager
said. ''That's been our situation more than tonight.''
Feliz's two-out single in the ninth off Broxton tied it at 2. Victorino led off with a single to center. After pinch hitter

League World Series.
