PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Rookie Dillon Gee remained undefeated, Jose
Reyes homered among his three hits and the New York Mets won for
the fifth time in six games, 8-1 over the Pittsburgh Pirates on
Friday night.

Gee became the first Mets’ rookie starter to improve to 7-0, and
New York has won all nine of his starts. He allowed one run and
eight hits in a career-high eight innings with no walks and five
strikeouts.

Reyes went 3 for 5, Angel Pagan had two hits and scored twice
and Josh Thole went 3 for 5 for New York. Each had a hit during the
Mets’ five-run fourth inning.

Pittsburgh’s Charlie Morton (6-3) lasted a season-low four-plus
innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) and nine hits.
