• Buck, bullpen back Gee as Mets win a close one

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Apr 21, 2013
    "They're a great team and to come out and take two of three from them is big," Gee said. Gee earned his first victory of the season, John Buck hit his seventh home run and New York beat the Washington Nationals 2-0 to take two of three games from the NL East champions. Dillon Gee provided an adequate start from someone not named Jon Niese or Matt Harvey, the bullpen preserved his efforts and John Buck once again did a bit of everything in a 2-0 win over the Nationals. As Collins said Sunday: “We’ve been struggling and we’re counting on Dillon Gee to be the No. 3 guy in this rotation, a role he’s been pretty good in. The resounding sigh you could hear emanating out of Citi Field Sunday afternoon? That would have been the sigh of relief from Terry Collins and the rest of the Mets high command over the 5-2/3 innings of shutout ball turned in by Dillon Gee against the Washington Nationals, which, at least for the time being, abated that dark hole that was forming at the back end of the starting rotation. Wright was referring generally to his team's situational hitting and bullpen, but he might as well have been lauding one critical sequence in the eighth. After putting the potential tying runs on base with no outs, left-hander Scott Rice ran the count to 3-0 facing Jayson Werth, with lefty sluggers Bryce Harper and Adam LaRoche due up next.
