Dillon Gee has neither the star power of Matt Harvey nor the unbridled potential of Zack Wheeler. He doesn't make a Mets fan's heart race. But maybe he should.
Gee has pitched like an ace for more than two months and he was at it again Thursday as the Mets completed a three-game sweep of the Rockies with a 2-1 win before 26618 at Citi Field. Gee (8-8) pitched 7 2/3 innings and gave up just one run. He didn't issue a walk and struck out three.

In his last 13 starts dating back to May 30 the righthander is 6-2 with a 2.42 ERA. He has pitched into the seventh inning or further in seven straight outings.
If he keeps this up he will be in next season's starting rotation.
Gee was lifted in the eighth after a two-out single by D.J. LeMahieu for left Scott Rice. Colorado manager Walt Weiss countered with pinch hitter Troy Tulowitzki who was walked on four pitches. David Aardsma got Michael Cuddyer to fly out ending the threat and keeping the Mets up 2-1.
