The Good: Despite last night’s struggles, the Mets bullpen has allowed seven earned runs in it’s last 36 2/3 innings.

The Bad: John Buck is hitting just .182 since April 10.

The Game: Dillon Gee (5-7, 4.82 ERA) will start for the Mets. Gee was shelled for eight runs in only five innings in his last start against the Phillies last weekend. Still, Gee has pitched to a 2.62 ERA over his last five starts and has a 3.00 ERA in four starts during June. Gee has pitched well in two starts against Washington this season, going 2-0 with a 0.71 ERA in 12 2/3 innings.
