ATLANTA - Dillon Gee combined with three relievers for a two-hit shutout, Angel Pagan hit a two-run homer and the surging New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 on Wednesday night.
Gee gave up one hit in four innings but did not return following a rain delay of 1 hour, 11 minutes. The delay cost Gee, who is 7-0, a chance to become the first Mets rookie to win his first eight decisions.
The Mets have won nine of 13, including the first two games of the series.
D.J. Carrasco replaced Gee and pitched two perfect innings.
Bobby Parnell (1-1) struck out five in two scoreless innings before Francisco Rodriguez completed the shutout with a perfect ninth inning.
