(Sports Network) - Dillon Gee aims to win his fourth straight road start when
the New York Mets resume a weekend set in Philadelphia.
Gee has posted road wins in Atlanta, Washington and Minnesota. Add in a no-
decision at Dodger Stadium, and the right-hander hasn't lost on the road since
July 27 at Washington.
In nine career appearances (eight starts) against the Phillies, Gee is 2-3
with a 7.66 ERA.
Tyler Cloyd counters for the Phillies. The righty has also struggled of late
and is 0-3 over his last five appearances. In his last two outings, Cloyd has
given up 19 hits and 12 runs in just eight total innings. He's 1-1 in two
career starts against the Mets.
David Wright made his return to lineup a successful one, smacking a two-run
homer among his two hits to help the Mets to a 6-4 victory Friday night.
Wright's strained hamstring finally healed after it sidelined the All-Star for
nearly seven weeks. He homered in his first at-bat and helped push New York to
a lead that it never relinquished.
New York's top three hitters combined for seven hits, with Daniel Murphy going
3-for-5 and finishing with three runs scored and an RBI. Eric Young also had a
pair of hits and drove in a run in the victory.
Daisuke Matsuzaka (2-3) had a stellar outing besides a rough fourth inning. He
struck out six over six frames, allowing four hits, three walks and four runs.
LaTroy Hawkins notched his 11th save with a 1-2-3 ninth.
Darin Ruf knocked in three of the Phillies' runs and scored the fourth. Cole
Hamels (8-14) took a beating early and was charged with six runs on 10 hits
over seven innings of work.
Philadelphia has taken nine of the 17 meetings with New York this season, but
the Mets have won five of the past seven contests between the NL East foes.
