Mets hold off Rockies
DENVER -- Dillon Gee shook off one tough inning in an otherwise strong outing, Lucas Duda homered and singled to drive in four runs, and the New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 7-5 on Saturday night.
Ruben Tejada, Daniel Murphy and David Wright each added three hits and scored five times collectively, helping the Mets bounce back from Friday night's sloppy 18-9 loss to Colorado.
Gee (2-2), who turned 26 on Saturday, allowed four runs in seven innings. He struck out seven and walked two, keeping the Rockies in check for most of the night except for a rough patch in the fourth when Colorado scored three of its runs.
Guillermo Moscoso (0-1), recalled from Triple A Colorado Springs earlier in the day, took the loss in his Rockies debut, giving up six runs on nine hits in five innings.
