NEW YORK, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Gio Gonzalez pitched six innings of one-run ball to earn his 19th victory Monday and Washington bashed three homers in its 5-1 win over the New York Mets.
Gonzalez (19-7) overcame five walks, allowing three hits while striking out six en route to becoming the major leagues' first pitcher to reach 19 wins.
The left-hander benefited from a pair of double plays turned behind him as the National League East-leading Nationals took the opener of a three-game series.
Collin McHugh (0-2) was tagged with the loss, surrendering five runs (two earned) on five hits in four frames.
Scott Hairston went deep for New York.
