Mets Sweep Yankees For First Time

Gee struck out a career-high 12 and limited the Yankees to four hits over 7 1-3 innings Thursday night in a 3-1 win that gave the Mets a four-game season sweep of their older, more prestigious rival.

Marlon Byrd had a two-run, second-deck homer in the second off rookie Vidal Nuno (1-2), John Buck hit a slow-rolling RBI single off third base in the eighth and Gee made that stand up against the Yankees, who totaled just seven runs in the four games.

Since the start of interleague play in 1997, the only sweep had been by the Yankees, when they went 6-0 in 2003.
