The problem was the Dodgers couldn't figure out Mets starter Seth Lugo, who was either forcing L.A. into soft contact or striking its hitters out (he finished with seven for the game).

Here's what we know: The 2017 Los Angeles Dodgers are spectacular at playing the game of baseball. With another 8-0 victory over the Mets, the Dodgers swept the three-game series.

Athletics 5, Angels 0: Rookie Paul Blackburn pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings, Rajai Davis had two hits and stole three bases and new catcher Dustin Garneau drove in two runs as Oakland defeated Los Angeles.

Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers has collected his fourth win of 2017 after throwing a scoreless start against the New York Mets.

The back of the Dodgers' rotation has already turned into a series of "Survivor" episodes with each start an immunity challenge for pitchers such as Ryu and Kenta Maeda. After hitting three first-inning home runs off of L.A. starter Rich Hill, the Mets threatened with runners on first and second and nobody out in the top of the second. The New York Mets have lost nine of their last 13 games when allowing three or more runs. Have to keep backing the Dodgers until they give us a reason not to. It happened 105 years ago with the 1912 Giants.

The Dodgers are only the third team in the modern area to go 43-7 or better in a 50-game stretch during a single season. They'll usually start a better pitcher than the opposition, they can outslug you, they defend well, they seldom blow leads in the late innings and they have one of the game's best closers in Kenley Jansen.

The only solace the Mets can take after losing Sunday night was they won't have to face the Dodgers again until next season.

The Dodgers have been churning along at an unprecedented pace all season.

Ryu was dominant Sunday. In the third, Ryu allowed a single to Travis d'Arnaud, but struck out the next two batters - Amed Rosario and Steven Matz - and got Michael Conforto on a grounder to second to end the inning.

Over his past six starts, Ryu is resurfacing as someone who will at least be in the conversation when the Dodgers begin their playoff planning. Matz did not record an out in the sixth inning in any of those starts, and had surrendered 40 hits and five homers.

The Mets certainly need no more convincing that the Dodgers are a force to be reckoned with.

The Dodgers had just crushed the Mets like refuse in a trash compactor when Justin Turner heard a teammate marveling in the clubhouse food room.

They've hit 96 home runs in that span while averaging 5.50 runs per game and outscoring their opponents 275 to 160. Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger each homered for the second consecutive day.

Cody Bellinger, the son of former Yankee Clay and the favorite to win NL Rookie of the Year honors, capped the team's big weekend with a two-run homer in the eighth inning off Josh Smoker.
