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.

It was the only offense of the evening for the Mets, who just couldn't get anything going against Ryan Vogelsong.

We've seen some flashes of his potential in the past, but it looks like things are finally coming together for him.

Jul 30 - 4:06 PM

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

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.

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.
Jul 24 - 11:01 PM

Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 and hit his 15th home run in Tuesday's tilt with the Mariners.

Duda had a nice all-around game. Not only did he smack an eighth inning home run, giving him fifty RBI even on the year, he also stole his third base of the season. You shouldn't hold your breath for another steal any time soon (please don't), but speedster abilities aside, Duda's slashing .261/.357/.485. He's really putting together a nice season.
Jul 23 - 1:46 AM

Jul 11 - 10:01 PM

Jul 8 - 10:39 PM

Duda also drew two walks and scored two runs. The 28-year-old is quietly putting together a nice season, batting .250/.345/.472 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI. With his power and multi-position eligibility, he's a worthwhile addition in deeper mixed leagues.
Jul 5 - 12:50 AM

Lucas Duda went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

Duda has been an RBI machine, knocking in eight runs over his last five games. He drove in a pair Friday night with a fourth-inning single, staking the Mets to a shortly-held 2-0 lead. On the season, the first baseman is slashing .252/.347/.478 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI.
