Final Score: Mets 3, Yankees 1 — Gee in tune, Mets sweep Yanks

USA TODAY Sports

Gee's strongest start of the season and Byrd's home run help the Mets earn a season sweep of the Bombers.

Dillon Gee made his strongest start of the season, Marlon Byrd hit a long two-run home run and the Mets topped the Yankees, 3-1, on Thursday night to complete a season sweep of the Subway Series. Gee pitched 7 1/3 innings, striking out 12 and walking none of the walk-adverse Yankees, and seemed to find his groove as the game progressed. A Robinson Cano solo shot in the home third proved the lone negative mark on Gee's record. The Mets added an insurance run in the eighth inning on an infield single by John Buck—yes, really—and Bobby Parnell threw a perfect ninth for the save.

Before Thursday's game, Terry Collins mentioned Gee as a candidate for the bullpen when Zack Wheeler is promoted from Triple-A. Gee responded with as good a game as he's ever pitched, baffling the Yankees' lineup with a lively fastball and (sometimes generously called) curveballs. Fuller recap to come.
