Gee guides Mets to 5-1 win over Rockies

Monday, May 05, 2014 - Updated: 8:39 AM

DENVER (AP) -- Dillon Gee threw six scoreless innings and David Wright had one of New York's four RBI doubles as the Mets salvaged the final game of their series against Colorado, beating the Rockies 5-1 on Sunday.

Gee (3-1) kept the Rockies off balance to run his scoreless string to a career-best 16 innings. The righty, 13-6 with a 2.66 since last May 30, surrendered six hits and struck out five, helping the Mets avoid being swept for the first time in a four-game series at Coors Field.

Jhoulys Chacin (0-1) was rather rusty his first start this season, lasting five innings and giving up four runs. Chacin spent the first month on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder.

Nolan Arenado ran his hitting streak to 24 games with a double in the fourth, the second-longest hitting streak in Rockies history. Justin Morneau accounted for Colorado's only run with a ninth-inning homer off Jeurys Familia.

A's salvage finale against Red Sox, 3-2

BOSTON (AP) -- Yoenis Cespedes drove in the go-ahead run on an infield single with the bases loaded in the 10th and the Oakland Athletics averted a three-game sweep with a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.

Oakland closed a 10-game road trip 5-5 and avoided its second three-game sweep in its last four series. The Athletics were swept at home by Texas April 21-23.

A.J. Pierzynski hit a solo homer for the Red Sox, who failed to reach .500 for the first time since the fourth game of the season.

Jed Lowrie had a two-out double off Chris Capuano (1-1) and after the bases were loaded with an intentional and regular walk, Cespedes beat out a slow roller to third against reliever Burke Badenhop.
