Reyes gets 4 hits to send Gee, Mets past Rangers

Jose Reyes had four hits and scored
three runs, rookie Dillon Gee pitched six effective innings and the
New York Mets beat the Texas Rangers 8-5 on Sunday.
Gee (8-1) recovered from a shaky start in the follow-up to his
only loss of the season. Making his first appearance against the
Rangers, he allowed three runs and eight hits with two walks.
Gee, who walked a career-high six over four innings in his
previous outing, has given up only eight earned runs in five June
starts. He grew up in north Texas and played his college ball at
Texas-Arlington.
Daniel Murphy added three hits for the Mets, who have won four
of five overall and took two of three from the AL West leaders to
open a key stretch of 13 of 16 games on the road.
