The Dodgers and New York Mets began their weekend series near the bottom of the major leagues in a conspicuous category. Collectively, each team had hit 94 home runs this season. Only four clubs had fewer.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly insists this isn’t an issue. He’s aware that only one player in the National League (Giancarlo Stanton) has hit 30 home runs. So what if the Dodgers’ home run leader, Adrian Gonzalez, only has 17?

“I worry about us winning games, having good at-bats,” Mattingly said.

The Dodgers had enough good at-bats — and good fortune — to beat the Mets 6-2 on Friday at Dodger Stadium. New York made three errors, while the Dodgers collected 11 hits.

Only one ball left the park: Dan Haren’s third pitch of the game to Curtis Granderson. That gave the Mets an early 1-0 lead and 95 home runs this season, for those who care.

Judging solely by his pitching, Haren (11-10) seemed unflustered by the home run, though he admitted after the game that he was “really mad” at the time. He faced only one batter above the minimum for the remainder of his seven innings on the mound, helped largely by a pair of double plays. The Mets didn’t score again until the ninth inning.
