He tossed six scoreless innings to help the Mets from being swept Sunday at Coors Field.
“I think I’ve had better stuff than I had today,” Gee said after the game. “It was just one of those outings where I was just able to get them to hit the ball at people and get the outs when we really needed to.”
Gee gave up back-to-back singles to begin the seventh inning, but Carlos Torres and Scott Rice were able to get out of the inning without letting up a run.
“We’ve been kind of hanging around that 100-pitch mark and even less sometimes,” Collins said about Gee, who left the game having thrown 113 pitches. “I wanted him to get up there so we get into the middle of summer it’s a little easier to throw the 90-100 pitches.”
He just keeps rolling, it's impressive. He says he was lucky, and I guess that's true. The Rockies were putting the ball in a play a lot and Gee's defense picked up everything. However, the Rockies were frequently off balance, swinging at bad pitches and making awkward contact, none of which was an accident. In the last year, Dillon has done an incredible job keeping the opposition on its heels. At this point, a year in, I hope people no longer have doubts about his passion, brain and ability.
