Dillon Gee sparks as New York Mets defeat Atlanta Braves 4-0 – MLB Update
New York Mets’ starter, Dillon Gee was outstanding with his pitching as he threw four score-less innings with an ERA of 2.86 and gave the Mets a 4-0 win against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field, Atlanta on June 15.
It was the Mets’ second consecutive win against the Braves and they clinched a three-game series 2-0.
The Mets opened their scoring account in the very first inning and got a 1-0 lead when Ruben Tejada was grounded out to short-stop and Jose Reyes scored one run. Second and third inning went in favour of the pitchers as they restricted the batters to not
scoring any runs. At the bottom of the third inning, the Braves’ centre-fielder Jordan Schafer was grounded out to second base and Dan Uggla struck-out swinging.
During the fourth inning of the game, the Mets extended their lead 3-0 by posting two runs on the score-board. Angel Pagan struck a solo homer (339 feet) towards right-field and Daniel Murphy contributed a single run for the Mets.
In the fifth and sixth inning, the batters failed to score any run as the pitchers maintained their perfect line and delivered fastballs towards the feet of the batters. Gee gave just one hit with five strike-outs and allowed two walks on his 53 pitches.
Gee commented on his game plan and said, “My whole goal is for the team to win when I'm out there. I actually felt very good today, probably the best I've felt all year.”
The Braves’ manager, Chipper Jones commented on Gee’s performance and said, “He was really good for four innings. I don't know who helped this guy with his transformation but he's really, really tough right now. We couldn't do anything offensively.”
The Mets took a 4-0 lead in the seventh inning when Reyes was grounded out to first base and Lucas Duda posted the last run of the game. The pitchers raised the potential of their teams by giving no run during the eighth and ninth inning.
The Mets’ manager, Terry Collins said, “Well, we're here, but we've got to stay here now. It's been a long road and a long uphill battle. Now we've got to move forward.”
Tim Hudson was expensive as he pitched four innings with an ERA of 4.08 and allowed three runs on four hits including two earned runs.
