Mets turn triple play in 11-3 win over Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lucas Duda homered twice, drove in a career-high five runs and was involved in the New York Mets' first triple play in over four seasons, allowing a grieving Bartolo Colon to breeze to an 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Colon (12-10) gave up two runs and five hits over six innings and struck out five in his first start since his mother Adriana passed away on Monday from breast cancer. After the game, the 41-year-old right-hander returned to the Dominican Republic to attend her funeral.

Despite the loss, the Dodgers maintained their 4 1-2 game lead on San Francisco in the NL West following the Giants' 14-6 defeat at Washington.

Kevin Correia (2-1) lasted only three innings on his 34th birthday, giving up seven runs - five earned - and seven hits.
