Los Angeles added an insurance run in the eighth when the Mets botched an opportunity for an inning-ending double play. Pinch-hitter Chone Figgins had a leadoff double against Jeurys Familia and scored on Ramirez's comebacker with runners at the corners.

"I got a little confused because I didn't want to throw it away," Familia said.

Wilson worked a scoreless inning and Jansen got three outs for his 13th save in 15 attempts.

Gonzalez homered into the second deck in right field leading off the second, his 12th of the season. The slugger hit a two-run shot in the series opener Tuesday night and has nine hits in his past 16 at-bats.

"I went where I wanted to go with the high fastball. He caught up to it," deGrom said.

It's the third time this season Gonzalez has gone deep in at least three consecutive games.

Puig sent a solo drive to left-center in the sixth for his 10th of the year and Ramirez followed with his seventh, the second time the Dodgers have gone back-to-back this season.

Puig has hit safely in 18 of his last 19 games, batting .408 with seven homers and 23 RBIs during that stretch. He was the NL co-player of the week last week.

Ryu scattered five hits over the first five innings and struck out Curtis Granderson with the bases loaded to end the third. That left the Mets 6 for 41 (.146) with the bags full this season.
