Gee shuts down Pirates as Mets avoid sweep

Dillon Gee pitched another gem against the Pirates, and John Buck hit a two-run single to lead the New York Mets to a 4-2 victory Sunday and avoid a sweep by Pittsburgh before the All-Star break.

Gee (7-7) allowed just one unearned run in 6 2/3 innings to the Pirates (56-37), who entered the day tied with St. Louis for the best record in the major leagues and the National League Central lead.

Gee is 3-0 with a 1.38 ERA in five career starts against Pittsburgh. He scattered, five hits, struck out two and walked one.

Buck's hit capped a three-run first inning against fill-in starter Gerrit Cole (4-3), who lost his third straight start after becoming the first Pirates pitcher since Nick Maddox in 1907 to win the first four of his career.
