With the help of Yasiel Puig, the Mets were able to turn a triple play in the sixth inning against the Dodgers. The Dodgers had just scored their second run on Adrian Gonzalez‘s RBI single, making it 7-2, and had runners on first and second with nobody out.
Facing Bartolo Colon, Matt Kemp hit a ground ball to third baseman Eric Campbell, who fired to second baseman Daniel Murphy, who then made the toss to first baseman Lucas Duda for a 5-4-3 double play. Puig never stopped running, though, as he attempted to score. Duda wheeled and threw the ball to catcher Travis d’Arnaud. d’Arnaud swiped and applied the tag to Puig for the third out of the play, ending the inning.
