Gee pitches 6 shutout innings, Mets beat Braves

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Dillon Gee pitched six scoreless innings and struck out seven as the New York Mets topped the Atlanta Braves 7-4 on Monday.

Gee allowed two hits and walked none. He had struggled earlier this spring, allowing 11 earned runs in his previous two starts. He missed the second half of the 2012 season with a clot in the artery to his right shoulder.

Braves starter Mike Minor gave up five runs in five innings and has a 6.26 ERA this spring.

Andrew Brown, Jamie Hoffmann and Collin Cowgill homered off Minor.

Jason Heyward and Justin Upton hit back-to-back homers off Mets reliever Robert Carson for the Braves.

Braves closer Craig Kimbrel, who has been hit hard this spring, pitched a scoreless inning.
