Dillon Gee and the Mets made their one-day stop in Minnesota today to settle some unfinished business, and the outcome was a good one to say the least. The Mets struck first against Twins’ starter Kyle Gibson. Eric Young Jr. led off the game with a single, and after subsequent singles by Daniel Murphy, Ike Davis and Andrew Brown, the Amazins held a 1-0 lead. The Twins may have threatened in the bottom of the frame, if not for an incredible leaping catch (the first of a few) by magic man Juan Lagares. The Mets struck again in the second, after another hit parade led to Young’s single which scored Lagares and brought the score to 2-0 after two. After a quiet third, the Mets decided to knock Gibson around some more. After they loaded the bases without surrendering an out, Omar Quintanilla made up for a prior base-running mistake by smacking a single and bringing home Travis d’Arnaud.

Travis D’Arnaud: One Giant Leap For Mets-Kind

With the decision having already been made that Travis d’Arnaud will not only remain with the Mets when John Buck is activated from paternity leave before today’s game, but also that the young catcher will assume the lion’s share of playing time, the Mets have certainly made the right decision. “One of the things we wanted to see over the three days is, was he within an acceptable...
