After going 0-5 last night in Pittsburgh, Jose Reyes found his groove again in his 31st multiple-hit game, against Pirates starter Charlie Morton. Morton performed the worst start of the season, allowing 7 runs with 6 earned and nine hits in less than 5 innings. While his backup defense wasn’t doing too much for him as the pirates 44 game errorless streak was snapped tonight, Morton and his missteps like the Mets 5 run 4th inning were in the spotlight. Although the offense contributed 8 runs to this Mets second straight victory, the real story lies with Dillon Gee.
Dillon Gee, allowing 1 run and 8 hits over 8 innings, expanded his record to 7-0, becoming the first Mets rookie to do so. As Gee has allowed only one earned run or less in three of his last five outings, the Mets offense doesn’t have to do much, but tonight they did.
