Starless Mets Pound Pirates With 7-3 Win
Dillon Gee, Ruben Tejada, Daniel Murphy all set personal records as despite the Mets missing four of their star players, rack up 15 hits and seven runs in a 7-3 win over the Pirates.
Dillon Gee pitched his second straight good outing tonight. Went 7 innings against the Cubs in his last start, Gee matched that by going another seven innings against the Pirates. With only five hits given up and three runs scored, Gee pitches quite the game. Not to mention zero walks, and eight batters struck out, a career high. Gee went 102 pitches, and racks up his fifth win of the season.
Jason Isringhausen pitched a hitless inning, with a strikeout. Frankie Rodriguez also pitches a hitless inning with one walk and one strikeout. He gets his 20th finish of the season. Rodriguez is now 35 games finished shy of his contract vesting at $17.5 million for 2012.
Tejada and Murphy matched career highs with three hits apiece as the Mets produced 15 hits. Thole racked up a two-run double. Turner, Murphy, Tejada, and Pagan each had an RBI as well. Turner now has six straight RBI games.
Willie Harris went 0-5.
Thole’s double to give the Mets the lead.
Everyone but Willie Harris.
