ELIAS SAYS ...
• There were 30 hits in Saturday night's Mets-Dodgers game: 14 for the winners and 16 for the losers. It was the most hits ever recorded in any National League postseason game. The 16 hits for the Dodgers were the most ever by a team in a postseason game in which it was eliminated from the playoffs.
• Shawn Green went 3-for-5. He is the first former Dodgers' player to collect at least three hits in a postseason game against them.
• The Mets made two errors with Steve Trachsel on the mound on Saturday night: one by David Wright and one by Carlos Beltran. The Mets made only two fielding errors with Trachsel on the mound during the entire regular season (and one was by Trachsel himself, on a wild pickoff throw), the fewest for any pitcher in the majors who threw at least 150 innings. Every other pitcher in that group had at least five team errors while he was in.
