Dillon Gee allowed four runs and six hits in six innings to earn a rain-shortened, complete-game victory.
Gee allowed three runs in the sixth inning, the third time he faced the Phillies in the game – the opposition is hitting a combined .330 against Gee the third and fourth time through the order this year.
“It was wet out there [in the sixth inning], but it was wet for everybody else,” Gee explained after the win. “I had a long inning and I came out and I wasn’t making as good of pitches as I had earlier in the night.”
Gee didn’t allow any walks in his six innings, marking the 11th consecutive start in which he’s allowed two walks or less and the 16th consecutive start in which he’s pitched six innings or more.
“I was fortunate the guys gave me good support,” Gee added.
Gee leads the team with 12 wins, one short of his career-high set in 2011 – he has already set a career high with 193 innings pitched and 140 strikeouts this season.
