ARLINGTON (AP) – Lucas Duda matched a Mets record with three doubles while going 4 for 5 with four RBIs, Carlos Beltran snapped out of a slump with three hits and New York had season highs for runs and hits in a 14-5 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.

The Mets led 3-0 after four batters against Alexi Ogando (7-3), who lost his third consecutive start without making it past the fifth inning.

Jonathon Niese (7-6) struck out seven in 5 2-3 innings and limited Texas to two runs, those coming on consecutive homers by Adrian Beltre and Michael Young in the fourth. The Mets said the right-hander left the game, which was played with temperatures in the mid-90s, for precautionary reasons because of a rapid heartbeat.

Niese is 5-2 with a 2.36 ERA his last eight starts.
