Game Notes

Dillon Gee continues to dominate in starts and has probably synced his spot permanently in this rotation. Just gonna throw out his line tonight before I divulge into how legit he really is. 7 innings pitched, only four hits given up, no runs, and two walks and two strikeouts. This guy has come in when Young got injured, originally in the bullpen, but has dominated in the rotation. With a now 6-0 record, this makes him the second rookie in Mets history to open a season with wins in first six decisions. The last Mets pitcher to do that, became the NL Rookie of the Year, just keep that in mind. Dillon Gee is also now officially undefeated in his first eight starts. Dillon Gee in 13 ML Starts: 8-2, 2.61 ERA.

Beato and Byrdak combined for two hitless innings in relief. Nice to see the bullpen finally keep it together.

The Mets offense racked up eight hits tonight, and had quite the excited seventh inning rally. Bases loaded and Pridie comes through with a pinch-hit RBI, followed by Jose Reyes three run triple, and a Justin Turner sac fly.

Jose Reyes has 10 triples this season. The franchise single-season record is 21 by Lance Johnson in 1996, and its still early in the season, so keep on the look out for that. All of Jose Reyes’ major league-leading 10 triples have come at Citi Field.  Jose Reyes extends his hitting streak to nine games with a three-run triple.

Murphy and Thole both had two hits in the game.

Jason Bay is 0-for-4 and is hitless in his last 17 at-bats.

Turning Point

The exciting five run seventh inning for the Mets.
