It seems as if a trip to Las Vegas has worked wonders for Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud. d’Arnaud doubled in two runs in the eighth inning, and the bullpen put in 8.2 innings of work as the Mets topped the Rangers 6-5 in their series opener. In 9 games since returning from a stint in Vegas, d’Arnaud is hitting .303/.361/.485/.846

Jon Niese was removed after being hit by a line drive in the first inning but appeared not to have suffered any long term injury. Lucas Duda hit a 2 run homer, and Curtis Granderson and Eric Campbell also doubled to round out the Mets offense.

BOX | RECAP

Batting .180 when he was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas in early June, d’Arnaud quickly went on a power-hitting tear in the Pacific Coast League. Brought back to the big leagues, he is hitting .303 with six RBIs in nine games since he was recalled.

“I just try to keep my mind at ease and keep everything simple and not overstress myself, and that’s been paying off,” d’Arnaud said.
