Last season R.A. Dickey came up from Buffalo and raced to a 6-0 start. This year, it's Dillon Gee's turn. Gee improved to 6-0 as the Mets beat the Braves, 5-0, on Saturday night at Citi Field.

Gee duplicated Jon Matlack's 6-0 start in 1972 for the best to start a season by a Mets rookie. Matlack went on to win the NL Rookie of the Year Award. One of Matlack's six wins that season came in relief.
