The New York Mets finished off a four-game series sweep against the New York Yankees Thursday night with a 3-1 win at Yankee Stadium.

The Mets were backed by an outstanding pitching performance by Dillon Gee. Gee allowed one run on four hits in 7 1/3 innings. He struck out 12 and did not walk a batter, and retired the last 15 batters he faced.

Mets relievers Scott Rice and Bobby Parnell combined to retire the Yankees' final five batters after Gee was removed from the game.

The Mets got on the board first in the top of the second inning on a two-run home run by outfielder Marlon Byrd.

Robinson Cano answered for the Yankees with a solo home run in the bottom of the third inning, his 14th of the season. He would be the last Yankee baserunner to reach safely in the game.

The Mets added an insurance run in the top of the eighth inning on an infield single by John Buck, who was the designated hitter in Thursday's game.

The Mets won the first two games of the series at Citi Field on Monday and Tuesday by identical 2-1 scores and won Wednesday's game by a 9-4 score.

Vidal Nuno took the loss for the Yankees, allowing two runs on three hits in six innings of work. He walked two and struck out two.

The Mets will be in Miami Friday to start a three-game series with the Marlins, while the Yankees will start a three-game series Friday against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.
