Dodgers defeat New York Mets, 4-3

Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez homers for third game in a row
Yasiel Puig, Hanley Ramirez also homer against Mets
Hyun-Jin Ryu returns, allows two runs in six innings

AT THE PLATE: Adrian Gonzalez homered for the third consecutive game, sending a second-inning offering from rookie Jacob deGrom into the second deck behind the right-field wall. The Dodgers increased their lead to 3-0 in the sixth inning, when Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez added solo home runs. Puig's home run was his sixth in his last 11 games and Ramirez's his second in the last three. The Dodgers added an insurance run in the eighth inning when hesitation on the part of reliever Jeurys Familia cost the Mets an inning-ending double play.

ON THE MOUND: Pitching for the first time in 23 days, Hyun-Jin Ryu limited the Mets to two runs over six innings. Both runs came on a sixth-inning home run by Eric Campbell. Ryu departed with a 3-2 lead and won for the fourth time this season. Kenley Jansen gave up a run in the ninth inning but earned his 13th save.

ROSTER MOVES: Ryu was activated, third baseman Juan Uribe was placed on the disabled list, infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena was called up from double-A Chattanooga (Tenn.) and right-hander Chris Withrow was optioned to triple-A Albuquerque.

UP NEXT: Zack Greinke (7-1, 2.03 ERA) will face the Mets and Jonathan Niese (2-3, 2.54) at Citi Field at 4 p.m. PDT. On the air: TV: SportsNet LA. Radio: 570 AM, 1020 AM.
