Gee went 7.2 innings, only allowing six hits, one walk and striking out a season high nine batters. The lone run the Twins scored was unearned as it occurred on a Daniel Murphy error. Gee picked up his ninth win on the season.
This is nothing new for Gee, as his last 10 starts dating back to June 29, he has gone at least six innings. He has allowed more than three earned runs in two of those games, meaning that in eight of his last 10 starts he has posted a quality start. His ERA in the month of August is a dominant 1.74, and has been below 3.00 for each of the past three months.
Gee was not the only one that performed well on Monday, as the Mets did score six runs. Each of Eric Young, Daniel Murphy, Marlon Byrd, Andrew Brown, Wilmer Flores and Omar Quintanilla had two hits and drove in a run. Byrd even belted his 20th home run of the season.
Travis d'Arnaud failed to record his first major league hit, but he did walk again and continues to get on base.
The Mets will return home to face off against the Braves on Tuesday with Zack Wheeler on the hill.
