(The Sports Xchange) - Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run double during a four-run seventh inning to rally the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets in Game Two of their National League Division Series on Saturday.

Zack Greinke (1-0) won his seventh consecutive start, allowing two runs and five hits with eight strikeouts and no walks in seven innings as the Dodgers evened the best-of-five series at 1-1.

The third game is on Monday in New York. Brett Anderson (10-9, 3.69 ERA) will get the nod for the Dodgers and the Mets will counter with Matt Harvey (13-8, 2.71).

Mets starter Noah Syndergaard (0-1) struck out nine but was charged with three runs in the seventh. He walked four and gave up five hits.

Center fielder Yoenis Cespedes and rookie left fielder Michael Conforto both homered for New York in the second inning.
