It had to happen sometime. Dillon Gee, who was previously 7-0, dropped his first decision in 2011. While Gee’s command is usually a strong suit, the righty’s control was all over the place. Gee walked a career-high six batters, and lasted just four innings. It was pretty obvious from the first inning that Gee simply did not have his stuff. Even though the Mets lost the game, they still have to be pleased with one player’s performance–Jason Bay. Bay went 3-3 with a triple, homerun, a walk, three RBI, and a run-scored. The Mets are now 35-38.


  • Dillon Gee was abysmal for the first time this season. Gee hurled four forgettable innings, giving-up three hits, four earned-runs, six walks, while striking-out one batter. The formerly loss-less Gee now stands at 7-1.
  • D.J. Carrasco didn’t exactly stop the bleeding. The reliever allowed three earned-runs on four hits and two walks in two innings of work.

  • Angel Pagan went 1-3 with a double, walk, and two runs-scored.
  • Jason Bay had his best game of 2011. The “slugger” logged a triple, homerun, single, walk, two RBI, and a run-scored. Over his past six games, Bay has posted a .416/.440/.584 line. It’s possible Bay has finally found his stroke…
