After trailing 1-0 in the first, the New York Mets scored six unanswered runs to defeat the San Diego Padres; picking up their 13th comeback victory of the year:

Making his ninth start of the season, Gee allowed one earned run on four hits over seven innings of work:

The 26-year-old starter struck out a career high nine batters and won back-to-back starts for the first time since winning five straight last season (May 19-June 10).  Gee allowed a first inning run on a Jesus Guzman sacrifice fly, but a sensational play by Mike Baxter led to an inning ending 7-6-3 double play.  With runners on first and third, Guzman drilled a would-be double if not for the Baxter web gem.  Yonder Alonso, like many, thought hit off the bat and was cruising into third only to see the Queens native snag the fly ball.  Alonso’s efforts to retreat back to first would come up empty as a strong rely throw from Ronnie Cedano ended the inning and the Padre rally.  Gee found his groove after a shaky first, cruising through the next six innings allowing just three hits and no runs en route to his fourth victory of the year. Following the game he told reporters he wants to be a more consistent pitcher, saying:

That’s what I want to be, is a consistent guy that you know what you’re going to get every night out. Lately I haven’t been that guy, and it really gets under my skin. I just feel my mechanics have been all out of whack. My right foot didn’t know what my left foot was doing, and I just felt lost.”

THE DUDE ABIDES: Lucas Duda tied the score with his fifth home run of the season and first in 77 at-bats in the bottom of the second inning.  The Dude has now collected 12 hits in his last 40 at-bats (.300 avg.) lifting his season average to .267 in the process:

THE OFFENSE:  The Mets took the lead in the bottom half of the third inning, scoring two runs on back-to-back hits by Mike Baxter and Kirk Nieuwenhuis.  NY put the game away in the fifth scoring three two-out runs; upping their Major League leading total in the category to 98.  With two-outs and runners on the corners, Daniel Murphy snapped an 0-for-15 skid with an RBI double to plate the innings first run. Ike Davis followed the Murphy double with a two-run single to give the Mets a commanding 6-1 lead. For Davis, it was his second two-run single in as many nights as the first baseman has now collected a hit in each of his last three games (3-for-8, 4 RBI).

LETS MAKE IT TWO-IN-A-ROW: The Mets will look to make it two-in-a-row as they send Johan Santana (1-2, 3.24 ERA) to the mound to oppose Clatyon Richard (2-5, 4.63 ERA) at 1:10 p.m in Citi Field.
