In Gee's third start of the season, Mets manager Terry Collins did not give him a chance to melt down late. Instead, Collins removed Gee after seven scoreless innings and 72 pitches, meaning he should be well-rested for Tuesday's outing.

Wacha took the loss Friday, in part due to sloppy defense. He allowed one earned run in seven efficient innings (93 pitches) despite three errors behind him. His cutter continues to emerge as a weapon alongside his changeup, fastball and curveball.

Lynn became the Majors' first four-game winner and has allowed one run in his last two starts. He seems past his first-inning troubles after altering his pregame routine, and Lynn said his command last time out was the best it's been this year.

Miller's been hurt by home runs (five) and walks (14) this season, the latter in part due to his tendency to fall too far off to the side as he finishes his delivery. Miller is seeking his first win over the Pirates in five career starts.
