Gee Strings Together Seven Solid Innings In Mets 4-1 Win

The Mets beat the Nationals by the score of 4-1 as Dillon Gee picks up the win in his Major League debut in Washington.

Game Notes

Dillon Gee was stellar in his Major League debut, taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning until the diabolical Willie Harris broke up the no-hit bid and the shutout with a homer leading off the sixth. I really hate that that Willie Harris.

Gee was brilliant and kept the Nationals off balance and guessing all night long, allowing just two hits in seven innings and even struck out the side in the fourth inning getting Ian Desmond, Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn to go down swinging in order.

Offensively, Gee helped himself with an RBI single in his first at-bat, but the big blow was a tremendous three-run homer in the first inning by Ike Davis, his 18th homer of the season.

Game Ball

Congrats to Dillon Gee on a solid effort and for collecting a win in his MLB debut.
