Dillon Gee didn’t have his usual command, pitching five innings, giving-up five hits, four earned-runs, four walks, and striking-out a career-high six batters. While Gee couldn’t hold-off the Astros himself, the Mets bats picked up the slack. The Mets scored five runs off three home-runs–from Jason Bay, David Wright, and recent call-up Fernando Martinez. The win nudges the Mets closer to .500, at 18-20.
