WASHINGTON -- Dillon Gee had been 6-1 with a 2.57 ERA in nine career starts against the Washington Nationals. And Gee had not surrendered a homer since June 22 this season.

Neither string of success continued.

Washington slugged three homers against Gee to account for all of its damage in a 4-1 win against the Mets on Saturday afternoon at Nationals Park.

"I just made a few mistakes that they capitalized on," Gee said. "They're good hitters, and you've got to tip your hat. Like I said, they really made me pay. The balls they hit out, they were definitely mistakes. They weren't good pitches. They did a good job. I was happy to at least be able to get through seven innings. That was big. But the damage had been done. Just mistakes."

Said Terry Collins: "All of the balls were up, belt high, out over the plate. We know they're a dangerous club that's got good power. He gave us a chance to come back. We just couldn't mount anything. He made four mistakes, basically. It ended up hurting us bad."
