The Mets fought valiantly tonight, but it was not to be as Julio Teheran and Dillon Gee engaged in a great pitcher’s duel which saw Gee flirt with a no-hit bid.
After both Teheran and Gee traded zeroes through the first three and a half frames, the Amazins’ struck first in the bottom of the fourth when Ike Davis drove in Marlon Byrd after Byrd’s one-out…eh…triple. Unfortunately, that was the only run they would score all night.
Gee tossed six no-hit innings, but quickly found himself in trouble when Freddie Freeman hit a missile back up the middle to lead off the frame. The bases quickly loaded up, but Gee battled out of it inducing Chris Johnson to ground out to third and then ringing up Joey Terdoslavic for the third out of the inning.
LaTroy Hawkins tossed a scoreless eighth and the Mets threatened in the bottom, yet couldn’t cash in, and it would cost them. Bobby Parnell allowed two runs in the ninth, blowing his fourth save of the year.
