Recap: Minnesota vs. NY Mets

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Dillon Gee tossed 7 2/3 innings in the New York Mets' 6-1 win over the Minnesota Twins in a make-up Monday matinee.

Gee (9-8) struck out nine and surrendered just six hits and an unearned run along with a walk for the Mets, who had dropped five of their last seven games coming in.

"He was staying aggressive. His curveball was there, his slider was there, every single pitch," Mets rookie catcher Travis d'Arnaud said. "He was locating his fastball. He did an outstanding job."

Marlon Byrd was one of seven Mets to tally a pair of hits. He smacked a solo homer and scored twice in the triumph. Eric Young, Daniel Murphy, Andrew Brown, Wilmer Flores, Juan Lagares and Omar Quintanilla also registered two hits apiece.

Kyle Gibson (2-4) allowed four runs on 10 hits and two walks over 3 2/3 innings for Minnesota, which has lost four consecutive contests.

After 10 major league starts, Gibson was optioned back to Triple-A Rochester following the game.

"Obviously that's not good enough. There's a lot of stuff I need to work on," Gibson said. "Obviously I didn't take advantage of it like I wanted to. I didn't come up here and have the success I wanted to."

The Mets jumped out to a 4-0 lead after plating a run in the first, another in the second and two more in the third.

Brown had a bases-loaded RBI single in the first, while Young slapped a run- scoring single through the hole on the left side of the infield in the second to make it 2-0.

Quintanilla and Murphy tallied RBI singles in the fourth to give New York its four-run spread.

The teams traded runs in the seventh.

Flores bounced an RBI single through the hole on the right side of the infield in the top of the seventh, while Trevor Plouffe, who ripped a two-out double to right-center in the home seventh, scored when Murphy committed a fielding error on a grounder off the bat of Clete Thomas.

Byrd's solo homer into the second deck in left in the ninth capped the scoring.
