The runners kept going and Pagan threw home, just in case. Catcher Henry Blanco tossed the ball to shortstop Jose Reyes at second base to double off Livan Hernandez. Reyes relayed to first baseman Ike Davis to catch Nyjer Morgan to complete the Mets' 10th triple play.
Crew chief Tim Tschida briefly huddled with the other base umpires before affirming the call.
The Mets' last triple play came May 17, 2002, against San Diego, an around-the-horn play on a groundball by Wiki Gonzalez.
The last time the Montreal/Washington franchise hit into a triple play was July 28, 2002, when Vladimir Guerrero of the Expos hit a line drive to Florida third baseman Mike Lowell.
