Found August 08, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
The Mets completed a winning homestand with their first three-game home sweep this season after a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies this afternoon at Citi Field. Dillon Gee delivered yet another dominant performance as he held Colorado to just one earned run, using his outstanding changeup and slider to keep batters off-balance all afternoon.

Who’s Hot/Who’s Not: Lawley Continues to Rake, Johnson Hits a Rough Patch

Who’s Hot: Dustin Lawley, OF, St. Lucie: Lawley continues to annihilate FSL league pitching. This week he has hit three home runs, seven RBIs, and is hitting .286 in 21 at bats. Lawley is too advanced for Single-A pitching, and he deserves to be called up to AA soon. It will be interesting to see how he fares against AA pitching once he’s promoted.
