Dillon Gee allowed two runs and five hits in three innings as the New York Mets defeated an Atlanta Braves split squad 5-3 on Friday. The projected No. 5 starter for New York struck out two and walked none as he concentrated on throwing his cut fastball to the Braves' lefty-heavy lineup. Atlanta starter Randall Delgado pitched three innings, allowing two runs and three hits. It was an improvement over his first start of the spring, in which he allowed four runs in one inning. Ronny Cedeno put the Mets up early with a two-run single, and Matt Den Dekker broke a 3-all tie with a two-run double in the eighth inning. Atlanta's Martin Prado had two doubles among his three hits. Braves closer Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless, hitless seventh inning.
