PITTSBURGH, July 14 (UPI) -- Dillon Gee allowed only one unearned run over 6 2/3 frames and Marlon Byrd triggered a big first inning Sunday in the New York Mets' 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.

Gee (7-7) yielded five hits and a walk while striking out two in the efficient outing, tossing 69-of-105 pitches for strikes.

Bobby Parnell wrapped up the victory with his 17th save as the Mets salvaged one win in their three-game series.

Byrd's ground-rule double with one out in the first sent home Eric Young and David Wright for a quick 2-0 lead. He later came home on John Buck's single, giving New York all the offense it would need.

Pittsburgh's Gerrit Cole (4-3) absorbed the loss, surrendering three runs on six hits over five full frames.

Starlin Marte and Jose Tabata each drove in a run for the Bucs, who came into the contest tied with St. Louis for the National League Central lead.
