NEW YORK (AP) _ Dillon Gee shut down Washington once again,
tossing hitless ball until pitcher Livan Hernandez grounded a clean
single with two outs in the sixth inning, to lead the New York Mets
over the Nationals 1-0 Thursday.

The game ended with Washington manager Jim Riggleman, catcher
Ivan Rodriguez and third-base coach Bo Porter hollering at the
umpires, moments after a disputed call.

For Gee (3-0) and the Nationals, his performance probably looked
familiar. In his major league debut last September, the 25-year-old
righty held the Nationals without a hit until Willie Harris homered
leading off the sixth.

Justin Turner hit an RBI single in the fourth for the only run.
