New York Mets
Dillon Gee rebounded from from a poor start to give the Mets six solid innings in a 5-1 win over the Washington Nationals today at Citi Field.
Gee has always had success against the Nats and had a 2.70 ERA in eight starts against them going into today. The right-hander had his changeup working and spotted his pitches well, holding the Nationals to one run on six hits and three walks while striking out four. He got in some trouble in the fifth and sixth innings, but each time he induced a doubleplay to avoid any damage. Gee improves to 6-7 and lowers his ERA to 4.60 for the season.
Carlos Torres would follow Gee up with two scoreless innings out of the pen, while LaTroy Hawkins finished it off with a clean ninth.
The Mets got on the board in the fourth when John Buck singled home Marlon Byrd who had reached on an error by Ryan Zimmerman. Some more shoddy defense by the Nats would lead to another pair of runs in the fifth. After Daniel Murphy singled and reached second on a groundout,...

With the All Star game a little more than two weeks away, prospective Mets’ all-star hopefuls have two more weeks to showcase their skills for the Mid-Summer Classic, which, as you all should know, is being held at Citi Field. The last time the Mets hosted the All-Star game was back in 1964.
Just how cool would it be if—even in this sub-satisfactory season—on July 16, when...
Why is Ike Davis still in Triple-A Las Vegas when the New York Mets should be exploring all their options, including trading him to the Bronx?
With Mark Teixeira out for the remainder of the season after re-injuring his wrist, and with a good chance the Mets won’t tender Davis in the off-season and let him walk, shouldn’t two plus two equal four?
DAVIS: Mets should be talking...
PLAYING IT SAFE
The Mets are reportedly planning to shut down ace Matt Harvey because of a Stephen Strasburg-style innings cap. He has been their best pitcher this season.
From SB Nation’s “Purple Row” Blog:
“Please let’s win this game”
“Yep, EY2 has offically won the game for the Mets already.”
“No David Wright! Huzzah! ”
“2 pitches in and the Mets announcer have already called it Mile High Stadium”
“Time zone fail. Thought this game started at 5:10 my time, missed the top of the 1st.”
“So did the mets...
The Mets lost to the Nationals tonight by a score of 6-4 at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started the game and was, of course, fantastic, pitching 7 innings of 1-run ball and striking out 11 Washington hitters. Ross Detwiler was pretty good as well for the Nationals, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) in 5 innings of work.
The Mets struck first in the bottom of the fourth when David Wright scored...
