You always here of pitchers helping their cause. Well, Mets starter Dillon Gee did the opposite as he bounced into an inning-ending 5-5-3 double play with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth.

After Yankees starter Bartolo Colon retired 13 in a row, the Mets strung together three straight hits to load the bases for Gee. In a 2-2 count, he hit a chopper to Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who stepped on third and then threw across the diamond for the out at first. The teams were scoreless after five.

Gee entered the game batting .048 and is 0-for-2 on the day.
