NEW YORK, April 10 (UPI) -- Ross Detweiler threw five innings of shutout ball and Jayson Werth drove two runs Tuesday in Washington's 6-2 win over the New York Mets.

Detweiler (1-0), making his first appearance as a full-time member of the Nationals' starting rotation, allowed only two hits while issuing a single walk and striking out six.

Werth finished 4-for-5 with a pair of run-scoring singles and Ian Desmond added a solo homer for Washington, which evened its three-game set with New York.

Mets starter Dillon Gee (0-1) was touched for four runs (three earned) on eight hits before exiting after 5 1/3 innings.

Ronny Cedeno went 3-for-4 with an RBI double for New York.
