Two weeks ago a trip to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers didn’t seem promising. But the Mets are out West to take on a stumbling L.A. team that has lost four straight and seen a 7.5 game lead over the rival Giants evaporate.

The Mets took the first of a four game series 3-2 on Thursday night with solid outing from Chris Young and a pair of RBI’s from David Wright.

Young (2-1) out-dueled Chris Capuano, who pitched with the Mets last season, tossing 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball with six hits, six K’s and no walks.

Capuano (9-3) allowed five hits and three runs over seven innings, striking out five and walking none.

Wright gave the Mets a 2-0 lead with an RBI double in the first inning and  solo-homer in the fourth.

Elian Herrera and Juan Rivera each had RBI hits in the bottom of the fourt inning as L.A. rallied to tie.

Andres Torres’ double to right field in the following half-inning proved to be the game winner as Mike Nickeas came around to score to make it 3-2.

Bobby Parnell worked a perfect ninth inning for his first save (Frank Francisco remains on the DL with a strained oblique).
