Dillon Gee was masterful Sunday, throwing eight shutout innings as the Mets blanked the Marlins and wrapped up a successful 6-4 homestand.
Daniel Murphy led off the second inning with a walk. Tom Koehler hit Chris Young and Lucas Duda followed with a ground rule double to plate Murphy to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. Koehler got the next two outs but then he walked Dillon Gee to load the bases. Eric Young grounded out to end the inning.
Curtis Granderson walked to lead off the fifth and came around to score when David Wright doubled off the wall in left. Chris Young then hit his second home run as a Met, a no-doubt-about-it kind of shot to left, to give the Mets a 4-0 lead.
Gee allowed just three hits with six strikeouts and four walks in his eight innings. Perhaps more importantly, he threw 110 pitches and was still effective after the 90-pitch threshold, which has been his Achilles’ heel.
Carlos Torres came in to wrap up the ninth.
Mets win 4-0.
