Dillon Gee pitched a gem this afternoon, throwing no-hit ball into the sixth inning when opposing pitcher Livan Hernandez grounded a single to break up the no-no. Gee went on to pitch 7.2 scoreless frames, surrendering only two hits and three walks, earning himself the big W for his superb effort. Tim Byrdak finished up the 8th inning with a single pitch, and our very own Francisco Rodriguez closed out the game for his 14th save of the season. It should be noted that with a runner on second in the 9th inning, Jayson Werth was called out at first on a ground-ball, although Daniel Murphy was clearly not on the bag. Regardless, a run would not have scored on the play, and even if safe, the Mets may have closed out the game within regulation.
This is the Mets’ second shutout in a row, and it should be noted that the Mets haven’t lost a 2+ game series in more than two weeks.
All was quiet on the offensive front, although Mr.Clutch Justin Turner knocked in his 13th RBI in the Mets only run of the day.
The Mets head to the Death Star…ah…err…Yankee Stadium tomorrow evening to vie for the .500 mark. R.A. Dickey will try to reclaim his worth, despite his early season lackluster efforts to earn his second win of the season.
