Earlier this weekend, after dropping winnable contests to the Rockies and Nationals, Mets third baseman David Wright lamented the Mets' inability to win close games. If his team was to emulate baseball's surprise contenders of recent years, it would need to start winning the types of games that can go either way. Sunday, the Mets struck the right formula. Dillon Gee provided an adequate start from someone not named Jon Niese or Matt Harvey, the bullpen preserved his efforts and John Buck once again did a bit of everything in a 2-0 win over the Nationals.
