NEW YORK (AP) - Dillon Gee followed Matt Harvey's first career shutout with an impressive outing of his own, helping the New York Mets beat Colorado 2-1 Thursday and sending the Rockies home after matching the worst road trip in team history.
Gee (8-8) scattered eight hits without yielding a walk in 7 2-3 innings to win for the first time since July 14. He allowed Corey Dickerson's homer leading off the fourth inning.
Rookie Wilmer Flores had an RBI groundout and Anthony Recker a sacrifice fly off spot starter Jeff Manship as the Mets completed their first three-game sweep over the Rockies since 2008 at Shea Stadium.
Manship (0-1) was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs for the start because right-hander Tyler Chatwood experienced inflammation in his right elbow after a bullpen session Tuesday. Chatwood was throwing to test a tight hamstring that forced Colorado to push back his start two days to Thursday.
Now he's headed to the DL, the latest blow for the sinking Rockies.
