Dodgers Eliminated From Playoffs by Mets: Hollywood Reacts With Sadness, Anger
"Fire Mattingly," wrote Rob Lowe succinctly about the team's manager.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been eliminated from the playoffs in the National League Division Series for the second season in a row.
The team lost 3-2 to the New York Mets at Dodger Stadium in the series' fifth game. Mets infielder Daniel Murphy scored the tying run and later hit a home run off Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke to help his team advance to face the Chicago Cubs in the NL Championship Series.
Some notable figures from the entertainment and sports worlds took to Twitter after the game to share their reactions. Here is a selection of tweets.
And congrats to #Dodgers on a well-earned defeat, the scorn of the rest of MLB, and a winter of recriminations, suspensions, and firings.— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 16, 2015
