Dillon Gee was the latest New York Mets starting pitcher to dominate the Balitmore Orioles on Wednesday night, pitching seven scoreless innings before giving up a 2-run homer to Wilson Betemit in the top of the 8th.  The seven scoreless frames ran the Mets team total to 29 innings, a MLB season-high.  The run dated to the sixth inning on June 17 and marks the third scoreless streak this season of 20.0 or more innings by New York’s staff (the club  recently posted streaks of 28.0 shutout innings from May 25-28 against the Padres/Phillies and 25.0 scoreless from June 1-3 against the Cardinals).

With the performance the 26-year-old evened his record to 5-5 on the season and lowered his ERA to a very ‘Dillon Gee like’ 4.27 for the year (Gee’s career ERA now sits at 4.11).

It would be nice to see Gee as sharp as he was Wednesday every time he took the mound, but even when he’s off he routinely keeps his club in the game night in and night out.  In fact, outside of a few bad outings against Milwaukee, San Francisco (7 ER in each) and Philadelphia (4 ER), Gee has not allowed more than 3 ER in any other start.   In just his third season #35 has quietly compiled 10 quality starts, good for 7th in the National League and placing him in a tie with staff aces like Zack Grienke, Matt Cain, Cole Hamels, Gio Gonzalez, Wandy Rodriguez, and Josh Johnson.  Not too shabby for the #4 man in the Mets rotation and yet another homegrown product that is paying big dividends for this Mets team in 2012.
