Dan Haren tossed seven strong innings and drove in a run as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the New York Mets, 6-2, in the opener of a three-game set on Friday.

Haren (11-10) surrendered just one run on three hits with six strikeouts for the win. Dee Gordon tripled among his three hits and drove in a run and Matt Kemp hit a two-run double for the Dodgers, who have won three of their last four games.

Curtis Granderson homered and Lucas Duda hit a sacrifice fly for the Mets, who have lost 12 of their last 14 games against the Dodgers. Jonathan Niese (7-9) was tagged with the loss after giving up five runs -- two earned -- on eight hits and three walks across 6 2/3 frames.

Granderson led off the game by smacking a 2-0 splitter over the wall in right for an early 1-0 Mets lead.

The Dodgers tied the game in the third. A.J. Ellis worked a leadoff walk and Erisbel Arruebarrena singled to left. Haren bunted into a double play, but Gordon brought in Arruebarrena from second with a base hit to left.

Justin Turner led off the home fifth with a double to the wall in center field and moved to third on Ellis' groundout. Arruebarrena worked a walk and moved to third when Turner was caught in a rundown trying to come home on a squeeze attempt. Haren's RBI hit to center gave the Dodgers a 2-1 lead.

Gordon tripled to the right-field corner with two outs in the seventh and Yasiel Puig walked to place runners at the corners. Adrian Gonzalez grounded to shortstop Wilmer Flores, whose throw to first was off the mark, allowing Gordon to score.

Carlos Torres took the mound for Niese and Kemp drove in two runs with a liner to left for a 5-1 score.

The Mets had runners at second and third with two outs in the eighth, but J.P. Howell struck out Granderson to escape the jam.

Ellis hit an RBI double off Rafael Montero in the eighth, making it a 6-1 game.

Jamey Wright came on to pitch the ninth and gave up singles to Daniel Murphy and David Wright. Duda's sac fly to left brought in Murphy to account for the final score.
