6 comments
Dillon Gee allowed just 3 hits through 8 scoreless innings and Chris Young lifted the Met offense with his 2nd homer on the year, the Met take  two out of three from the Marlins Sunday afternoon 4-0.  The victory was the Mets 4th team shutout of the year.  Gee was brilliant allowing just 3 hits he walked 4 and struck out 6. The Met took a 1-0 lead in the second on an opposite field RBI double by Lucas Duda. In the 5th David Wright’s RBI double scored Curtis Granderson to make it 2-0. Then Young crushed his two run shot to complete the Met scoring. Gee with the 8 innings is the first Met pitcher to go that far this year. He gets the win improving to 2-1. Carlos Torres pitched a scoreless ninth to lock it down. Tom Koehler takes the loss for the Fish he falls to 2-2-. Going 0 for 4 Eric Young Jr. had his streak of 20 straight games reaching base snapped.  Daniel Murphy has now hit in 9 straight games. The Met have also won all 6 games that Anthony Recker has started behind the plate. Recker went 1 for 4.  The Mets are now 14-11 on the year and finish the home stand 6-4 (now 8-8 at home on the year). Tuesday night the Mets start a 9 game road trip in Philadelphia. Cole Hamels(0-1 3.00) goes for Phillies, Jonathan Niese (1-2  2.45) goes for the Mets.

Nice win by the Mets. Great pitching and defense again. But I have to say it makes me sick that Terry gives Recker that much playing time while dArnaud is finally starting to hit.

Michi -

I'm not a big TC fan. I also don't ink it was his decision who plays catcher.

The Mets have a lot invested in d'Arnaud and the future will be much brighter if he is an all-star catcher through this decade. For that to happen, watch for them to "control" his innings this season, sort of like you do with a pitching prospect.

D'Arnaud is coming off multi-injuries and having today off gave the Mets the chance to rest him for two days (no game on Monday). Trust me, him and Abreu would have been the first two pinch hitter bats of the bench if they were needed today.

It also doesn't hurt that the Mets have not lost a game this year with Recker catching.

A silver cloud in every lining. Grandy hitless again.
Duda swinging well.
Gee shows you can win in this league without lethal heat.

Pretty amazing April, the Spring was a mess, they get swept by the Nats to open season, now 14-11... ..any chance, any chance Mack that the Mets become buyers ?? Sign Drew and take a a salary dump closer on their hands..or if things continue same way for another 3 weeks can they turn buyer?? Sandy is like a Cheetah stalking the high grass imo and when he makes his move it will be a thing of beauty...

I continue to be a huge Gee fan.....we have lots of talented 'prospects' with live arms and 95+ fastballs, but Dillon Gee throws quality starts, in the majors, right now. .......
