MINNEAPOLIS -- Headed for a fifth straight losing season, the New York Mets have the kind of rotation in place with the potential to soon end that skid. Derek Holland Jersey . Matt Harvey is the leader of the group, but dont forget Dillon Gee. And Travis dArnaud is up to guide these guys from behind the plate. Gee pitched into the eighth inning for the Mets in a 6-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday afternoon in a makeup game from April 14, and dArnaud learned afterward hes here for good. Gee (9-8) turned in yet another quality start, and the offence for the Mets was about as balanced as could be with RBI singles by Eric Young, Daniel Murphy, Andrew Brown, Wilmer Flores and Omar Quintanilla. All five of them had two hits, as did Marlon Byrd, who hit his 20th home run. Juan Lagares made several standout catches in centre field, including a sprint into the wall to track down Josh Willinghams drive in the first. "It helps to have the help that Ive had. Ive had great catchers calling great games, and Juan tracks down everything there in centre field," Gee said, adding: "It gives you confidence to keep attacking." With veteran catcher John Buck due back on Tuesday from paternity leave, the Mets sent catcher Anthony Recker to Triple-A Las Vegas after the game. That meant dArnaud, the prized prospect acquired from Toronto in the off-season trade of Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey, was staying despite being hitless in his first seven at-bats. "What an amazing feeling, getting to stay with the club. This group of guys is just a great group of guys that truly love baseball," dArnaud said. Hes not going to be biding his time on the bench, either. "The only way this guy is going to improve is to be here," manager Terry Collins said. Rookie Kyle Gibson (2-4) struggled again for the Twins, failing to finish the fourth. He recorded 11 outs and allowed 10 hits and was sent to Triple-A Rochester after the game with a 6.53 ERA. Only once since his debut on June 29 has the right-hander gone six innings and given up three runs or fewer. "He just wasnt very consistent today. I know hes frustrated," catcher Joe Mauer said. The Mets won the first two games of the series here by a total score of 20-7, but the finale at Target Field was postponed due to cold and rain. Despite the four-plus months that elapsed, this was just as lopsided as before, thanks to Gee. The 27-year-old right-hander was scheduled to start this game originally, that wintry afternoon. The heat and humidity have proven to be better working conditions. Since May 30, Gee has a 2.27 ERA, the third-best in the league behind Jose Fernandez and Clayton Kershaw. All nine of Gees victories have come since April 20, and no other Mets pitcher including the All-Star Harvey has more than five in that stretch. The Mets are 13-12 in Harveys starts. Theyre 14-11 with Gee on the mound. This was a feel-good way to wrap up an 11-game road trip for the Mets, who finished 5-6 but lost three of those on the last at-bat. Gee walked just one and struck out nine, matching the second-highest total of his career. Left-hander Scott Rice relieved him with two outs in the eighth inning to retire Justin Morneau with Mauer, who had two of the six hits against Gee, on second. The only run Gee allowed was unearned when Murphy let a ground ball hit by Clete Thomas slide underneath his glove at second base in the seventh for an error. Gee has given up one or fewer runs in 12 of his starts. Hes completed six innings or more in each of his past 10 turns. Collins and dArnaud raved about the way Gee mixed all four pitches. "This is what weve known him to be in the past. I wouldnt be at all surprised if you look up in the next six weeks, and hes going to have 14 or 15 wins," Collins said. NOTES: Collins said reliever Carlos Torres will start on Friday, giving Harvey an extra day of rest. Jenrry Mejias elbow injury opened a spot. ... The Mets host Atlanta on Tuesday, with RHP Zack Wheeler (5-2, 3.43 ERA) set to take the mound after a career-high 12 strikeouts at San Diego last Thursday.

Theyll start RHP Mike Pelfrey (4-10, 5.26 ERA) opposite RHP Rick Porcello (9-6, 4.33 ERA) of the Tigers.

NEW ORLEANS -- The Saints and Jonathan Goodwin have agreed to a one-year contract bringing the veteran centre back to New Orleans, the club announced Tuesday. The 35-year-old Goodwin has spent the past three seasons with San Francisco, playing in three straight NFC title games and a Super Bowl. Goodwin played for New Orleans from 2006 to 2010, starting the last three of those seasons. He was named to a Pro Bowl and won a Super Bowl in the 2009 season. His new deal is worth $955,000, a person familiar with negotiations told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because financial terms were not released. The Saints also signed defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick to a one-year contract, general manager Mickey Loomis said. Prior to the re-acquisition of Goodwin, second-year pro Tim Lelito and undrafted rookie Matt Armstrong were the top candidates to take over the Saints starting centre job, which was vacated by Brian de la Puente when he left for Chicago in free agency. The experience of the 6-foot-3, 318-pound Goodwin, a 12-year veteran, will give him an edge. Lelito saw limited action last season, but only as a reserve guard, while his work as a backup centre was limited to practice. At the same time, the Saints see the 6-4, 315-pound Lelito as a promising prospect and also have asserted that a young centre can thrive in their system, in part because quarterback Drew Brees calls out the bulk of blocking adjustments at the line of scrimmage and in part because whhoever plays centre will have a pair of veteran Pro Bowlers on either side of him in guards Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs. Alejandro De Aza Jersey. However, because off-season practices do not involve full contact, it has been difficult for coaches to fully evaluate how ready Lelito is to be a regular centre. "Tim is someone that has handled the transition right now pretty well," coach Sean Payton said last week. "But he is going to have to, when we get into training camp, do it in a live setting." Like Lelito, the 6-2, 302-pound Armstrong played at Grand Valley State. Last season, he was named by the Rimington Award committee as the nations top Division II centre. Evans is the only starter on the offensive line who also started during Goodwins last season in New Orleans. Goodwin was teammates with Zach Strief for five seasons, but Strief did not take over as the starter at right tackle until 2011, the year Goodwin left for San Francisco. On the left side of the line are Grubbs, who was acquired as a free agent in 2012, and tackle Terron Armstrong, who was drafted in 2013. The 6-4, 305-pound Deaderick is a four-year NFL veteran who has played in 47 career games with 15 starts. He joined the NFL as New Englands seventh-round pick in 2010 and spent three seasons with the Patriots. Last season, he played for Jacksonville, appearing in 13 games. He has been credited with 50 tackles in his career, along with 5.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and two passes defenced.
