The Los Angeles Dodgers took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Matt Kemp’s RBI single that scored Adrian Gonzalez, who had reached on a two-out double.

From that point on, the New York Mets overwhelmed the Dodgers en route to an 11-3 win. The Dodgers began the bottom of the sixth trailing by six runs, but garnered some momentum as Dee Gordon and Yasiel Puig both reached with no outs.

Gonzalez drove Gordon with an RBI single that still left two runners on and no outs. Matt Kemp came to plate and hit a ground ball to third base that started a 5-4-3-2 triple play. As the Mets were in the process of getting Gordon at second and Kemp at first, Puig broke for home and was thrown by Lucas Duda.

It was the second triple play the Dodgers hit into this season, with Puig also at the center of the first one.
