Game 1 Recap: Mets Cruise to Win Over Pirates, 7-3

Dillon Gee was everything and more last night. The youngster improved to 5-0 by throwing seven innings, giving-up five hits, three earned-runs, zero walks, and striking-out eight batters. Command has been Gee’s biggest hurdle despite his win-heavy record, but his 8 K’s/0 BB’s epitomized command. While the Mets were without Jose Reyes (due to his grandmother’s death), the Mets offense didn’t skip a beat. Everyone except Willie Harris recorded a hit, and six Mets players had multi-hit games.

METS GAME HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Dillon Gee pitched seven innings, giving-up just five hits, three earned-run, no walks, all while striking-out eight batters. Gee improved to 5-0 with the win.
  • Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth, even though it was not a save situation. Remember, if K-Rod just finishes 55 games, his $17.5 million option will automatically become guaranteed. He is currently on-pace to finish 61 games.
  • Justin Turner, Carlos Beltran, Dan Murphy, Angel Pagan, and Ruben Tejada all had multi-hit games.
  • Thole has collected seven RBI over his past four games.
  • Willie Harris, who played third base and subbed for Jose Reyes in the lead-off spot, was the only Mets hitter (besides Dillon Gee) to not record a hit.
