NEW YORK, May 30 (UPI) -- Dillon Gee made a bid to keep his starting job Thursday by striking out 12 in carrying the New York Mets to a 3-1 win over the New York Yankees.

The Mets defeated the Yankees in all four of their interleague series games and have won five in a row overall.

Gee (3-6) was chiefly responsible for the latest victory, giving up a run on four hits without a walk in 7 1/3 innings. There had been reports prior to the game that Gee was headed to the bullpen after this start.

Scott Rice retired the only two men he faced to finish off the eighth inning and Bobby Parnell worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his ninth save. The last 20 Yankees were retired in order after Robinson Cano hit a home run in the third inning.

Marlon Byrd put the Mets in front for good with a two-run homer in the second off Vidal Nuno (1-2) and John Buck drove in a run with an infield single in the eighth.
