Mets turn first triple play since 2010
LOS ANGELES – The New York Mets turned a triple play in the sixth inning of yesterday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, their first triple killing in four years.
Dee Gordon led off with a single against Bartolo Colon, and Yasiel Puig walked before Adrian Gonzalez singled home a run. Matt Kemp followed with a sharp grounder in the hole to third baseman Eric Campbell, who threw to second for the force before Daniel Murphy relayed to first for the second out. Puig tried to score on the play, but catcher Travis d’Arnaud took the throw from Lucas Duda and tagged out the Dodgers center fielder.
The triple play was the first for the Mets since May 19, 2010, at Washington.
