The Mets blew out the Dodgers 11-3 to take one game from this weekend. Lucas Duda hit two home runs, his twenty-fifth and twenty-sixth of the season, and Bartolo Colon gave up just two runs in six innings of work. Colon's counterpart, Kevin Correia, gave up seven runs to the Mets—two in the second on a Travis d'Arnaud home run and an Eric Young Jr. triple and five in the fifth on Duda's three-run home run and a two-run home run by Ruben Tejada.
From there, the game went into cruise control. The Mets scored three times in the seventh and Duda's second home run, a solo shot, came in the ninth. On the downside, David Wright left the game with neck soreness, and Daniel Murphy left with calf soreness.
