NEW YORK (AP) -- Mark Ellis lined two home runs and hit a hard grounder that sent Mets starter Jonathon Niese limping off for X-rays, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over New York 7-2 Tuesday night. Ellis got four hits and drove in four runs. He hit his 100th career homer in the fifth inning, then connected for a tiebreaking, three-run shot with two outs in the seventh. Ellis had three RBIs on Sunday at Baltimore when the Dodgers stopped a six-game losing streak. He had not homered since Sept. 20 until tagging the Mets in the series opener. The ball Ellis hit that really hurt the Mets came in the third when his comebacker struck Niese in the lower right leg. Niese hopped toward the clubhouse with a bruise, and the Mets said he's day to day.
