The Mets' lineup did its part, too, scoring one run in the first and another in the second. They tacked on two more in the fourth inning, all of which were charged to struggling Twins starter Kyle Gibson. A Wilmer Flores single in the seventh plated the Mets' fifth run, and Marlon Byrd hit is twentieth home run of the year, a solo blast, in the ninth inning for the team's sixth and final run of the afternoon.
Scott Rice and Scott Atchison combined for one-and-one-third scoreless innings in relief of Gee to finish the game.

Nice job by Steve Sypa; his effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
