Dillon Gee won his 11th game, David Wright hit a 3-run homer to open the scoring, and the Mets won Wednesday’s rubber game in San Diego.  The win bumps their record to 60-63.

This game was mainly about the aforementioned 2 players, Gee and Wright.  While Wright only went 1-5 on the day, the one hit was a huge one — he broke a scoreless tie in the 3rd inning with his 3-run blast and gave Gee a nice, early cushion to work with in spacious Petco.  He also made a great play in the 4th inning in which he faked out Cameron Maybin at third — Maybin rounded third as Wright faked throwing to first, and he was able to tag him out to end the inning.

As for Gee, it was a nice bounceback start after a string of lackluster ones.  Due to the afternoon start time in San Diego, Gee was able to work the shadows to his advantage, only allowing one run in his 6 2/3 innings of work.  He made a spectacular play himself — on a backhanded stab on a ground ball up the middle, which he converted into an inning-ending double play.  After he exited the game with a 4-1 lead, the Mets tacked on 3 more runs in the 8th to put this one out of reach.
