Puig's aggressiveness enables Mets to turn triple play against Dodgers

  • Print

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The New York Mets have turned a triple play in the sixth inning of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

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. Puig tried to score on the play, but catcher Travis d'Arnaud took the throw from Lucas Duca and tagged the Dodgers' centre fielder out.

Campbell entered the game in the bottom of the fourth as a replacement for David Wright, who left because of a muscle spasm in the right side of his neck.

The triple play was the first for the Mets since May 19, 2010 at Washington.
