ATLANTA, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Dillon Gee allowed four hits in seven innings Wednesday in pacing the New York Mets to a 5-2 win over the Atlanta Braves.
Gee (11-9) struck out more batters (five) than he allowed hits as he won for the fourth time in five decisions. He walked one -- the first batter he faced -- while giving up four singles in his seven-inning outing.
The Mets backed him with five runs in the first three innings against Braves' spot starter Kameron Loe (1-3). Loe was charged with five earned runs, 11 hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings.
The Mets' LaTroy Hawkins pitched a one-hit ninth and earned his seventh save.
