Dillon Gee helps Mets beat Michigan

Dillon Gee allowed one run in two innings in his first outing

since having a blood clot removed from an artery in his throwing

shoulder, helping a New York Mets split squad beat the University

of Michigan 5-2 in an exhibition game at Tradition Field on

Sunday.

Gee struck out three in his first outing since July 7.

Jonathon Niese started for the Mets against owner Fred Wilpon’s

alma mater. He allowed one run in two innings and struck out two.

He also threw two wild pitches in the first inning, the second of

which allowed a run.

Marlon Bryd had a run-scoring single in the second inning. Mets

second base prospect Wilmer Flores led off the bottom of the sixth

with a home run to left field.
