Three hits by d’Arnaud lead Mets past Phils

NEW YORK (AP) — Travis d’Arnaud went 3 for 4 with a three-run homer, Bartolo Colon made his second straight strong start, and the New York Mets crushed the Philadelphia Phillies 7-1 on Monday night.

D’Arnaud hit one of three doubles for the Mets as they took a 4-0 lead in the first. Then the catcher’s seventh home run of the season broke the game open in the fifth.

The 41-year-old Colon (10-8) retired the first 20 batters in his last outing Wednesday against Seattle, eventually allowing two runs on three hits in 7 1-3 innings in a 3-2 win. He wasn’t as dominant Monday. But staked to a big lead, he was never in much trouble either, scattering 10 hits over 7 2-3 innings.
