Gee pitched six scoreless innings and struck out seven as the Mets topped the Braves, 7-4. Gee had allowed 11 earned runs in his previous two starts and missed the second half of last season with a blood clot in his right shoulder.
While Mets have had their share of injuries during spring training, but Shaun Marcum’s right shoulder doesn’t appear to be a major issue.
The Mets’ right-hander was nearly perfect while tossing 4 1/3 shutout innings in a 4-1 win over the Marlins on Thursday. Harvey’s only baserunner reached on an error. He struck out five batters and threw 35 of 48 pitches for strikes.
Sure, the Yankees are banged-up. But the Mets have the Johan Santana mess — plus an outfield by committee, and not a particularly great committee at that.
Matt Harvey stole the show once again on Friday. The young pitcher, whom Sandy Koufax was looking to meet at Mets camp the other day, retired all six Atlanta batters he faced.
Dillon Gee allowed two runs on five hits in three innings as the Mets defeated an Atlanta Braves split-squad, 5-3, on Friday.
