Dillon Gee pitched six scoreless innings and struck out seven as the New York Mets topped the Atlanta Braves 7-4 on Monday.
Gee allowed two hits and walked none. He had struggled earlier this spring, allowing 11 earned runs in his previous two starts. He missed the second half of the 2012 season with a clot in the artery to his right shoulder.
Braves starter Mike Minor gave up five runs in five innings and has a 6.26 ERA this spring.
Andrew Brown, Jamie Hoffmann and Collin Cowgill homered off Minor.
Jason Heyward and Justin Upton hit back-to-back homers off Mets reliever Robert Carson for the Braves.
Braves closer Craig Kimbrel, who has been hit hard this spring, pitched a scoreless inning.

New York Mets right-hander Shaun Marcum could miss the start of the regular season because of a neck injury.
Marcum, who signed a $4 million, one-year contract during the offseason, experienced discomfort during a bullpen session Monday. He was being examined in Port St. Lucie on Tuesday and was all but certain to miss his final exhibition start, slated for Thursday.
Mets manager Terry Collins says Shaun Marcum is coming to New York to have his pitching shoulder and neck examined by team doctors and that Aaron Laffey would likely make a spot start in place of the right-hander Sunday.
Collins says that Marcum will see the team's doctors Thursday.
Marcum was unable to pitch a simulated game Tuesday at the Mets' spring training complex...
