Lucas Duda had a perfect night at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a two-run single and two walks, but the Mets were handed a loss by the Marlins on Wednesday.

Duda put the Mets on the board with his fifth-inning two run single, and later scored the Mets' third and final run in the eighth, but it wasn't enough. The first baseman has turned in a fine season, slashing .252/.354/.474 with 27 home runs and 83 RBI.

Lucas Duda went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI in the Mets' 11-3 trouncing of the Dodgers on Sunday.

Duda capped off quite a week with Sunday's performance -- in his past six games, Duda is batting .348 (8-for-23) with five home runs, 11 RBI and seven runs scored. The first baseman's 26 home runs are third-most in the NL, and he's also among the league leaders in RBI and OPS. It's definitely been a breakout year for the 28-year-old.

Aug 20 - 7:15 PM

Aug 9 - 11:39 PM

Lucas Duda clubbed a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Giants.

It was the only offense of the evening for the Mets, who just couldn't get anything going against Ryan Vogelsong. Duda is now up to 20 home runs on the year and has gone deep six times in his last nine games. We've seen some flashes of his potential in the past, but it looks like things are finally coming together for him.
Aug 1 - 9:39 PM

Jul 30 - 4:06 PM

Lucas Duda is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

Jul 29 - 3:11 PM

Lucas Duda hit his second game-winning home run in three days on Sunday, as his two-run homer proved to be the difference in the Mets' 2-0 win over the Brewers.

Duda tortured the Brewers in the four-game set, hitting three homers and driving in six. He's got four home runs in his last six games to give him 18 on the season. The first baseman is batting .259/.356/.500 with 56 RBI and has put himself into the mixed league discussion with his recent power surge.
Jul 27 - 6:37 PM

Lucas Duda delivered a go-ahead two-run homer in a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Friday.

The Mets entered the top of the ninth inning down 3-0, but David Wright knocked in the first run with an RBI single and Duda followed with a long blast to right-center field. The 28-year-old has now gone deep three times in his last four games and is up to 17 home runs and 53 RBI on the year. It looks like the Mets made the right choice between him and Ike Davis.
Jul 26 - 12:07 AM

Lucas Duda walked and homered in four at-bats in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

Duda was the only one able to figure out Matt Garza, who dominated the Mets. Duda took Garza deep to center for a solo home run in the seventh inning, his club's only run of the evening. The first baseman has quietly been among the most productive at his position, at least offensively, as he is slashing .260/.360/.490 with 16 home runs and 51 RBI.
