RHP Bartolo Colon (5-3, 3.10) vs. RHP Dillon Gee (8-1, 3.32)
The Mets and Yankees play game two today as the Mets try to rebound from last night. Yesterday, the Yankees got off to an early lead and that was all they needed as the Mets would record 10 hits in the game but only push across one runner. Today Dillon Gee will get the start as he goes against Bartolo Colon.
Dillon Gee qualifies by innings now to have the best winning percentage in the league as he takes his 8-1 record and a 3.32 ERA back to Citi Field this afternoon. After his bad outing against Oakland, he responded with a quality outing in his last start pitching 6 innings allowing only 3 ER. This will be Gee’s first time facing the Yankees franchise or anyone on the Yankees roster.
Bartolo Colon is 5-3 this season with a 3.10 ERA. In his last three starts he has pitched 21.0 innings with an ERA of 1.29. Life time against the Mets, Colon is 3-1 with a 3.46 ERA. The Mets have the following numbers against Colon:

Let’s Go Mets!
