Chase Utley might be the most hated man in Queens, N.Y.

The Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman, who was thrown at earlier in the game by Noah Syndergaard - prompting the New York Mets starter's ejection - hit the Citi Field crowd right where it hurts by responding with a grand slam in the top of the seventh:

That wasn't the extent of Utley's damage Saturday, though, as he also connected earlier in the sixth inning with a solo shot to break the initial deadlock:

Syndergaard's pitch - which sailed about a foot behind Utley - was likely in retaliation to the infielder's slide that broke the leg of former Mets second baseman Ruben Tejada in last season's NLDS.
