Last night’s loss to the Braves sucked big time… This much is true… But what bugged me the most was how it wiped out a brilliant performance by Dillon Gee who continues to dominate after injuries saw him start the season off in some pretty dire straits.
The Mets wasted Gee’s seven shutout innings and the fact he had a no-hitter through six became an afterthought. The right-hander didn’t seem to mind it, but I sure did…
“I don’t ever think that,” said Gee. “I was just trying to win a game, really. No-hitters, I feel like, it’s a lot of luck involved in that. There’s really nothing on my mind at that point.”
This would be the second time that Gee was denied a win in such heartbreaking fashion. The first, you might recall, was when he took a shutout into the ninth and then lost it on a bloop and a blast, the deathblow coming on a two-run walk-off homer to Freeman at Turner Field.
“I mean, it’s always tough to lose,” Gee said regarding the sting of both Met losses.
How good has Gee
