Shohei Ohtani's perfect remedy for a slump was comically bad Mets and their glove-tossing reliever

Three games against the Big Apple’s favorite blue and orange calamity turned out to be the perfect panacea for the Dodgers, who left town with a sweep after Wednesday's 10-3 victory.

Despite the team’s bounceback, Ohtani looked sluggish for most of the series, extending a cold stretch for the All-World slugger.
