NEW YORK (AP) - Cody Bellinger hit a grand slam to break a scoreless tie in the sixth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the sinking New York Mets 5-2 behind Alex Wood's effective pitching.

Mount Sinai West head and neck surgeon Mark Urken said the procedure went well.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Kevin Knox was booed on draft night, like Kristaps Porzingis. But the Knicks believe he has the traits to win over the fans the same way Porzingis did.
