NEW YORK, June 30 (UPI) -- Gio Gonzalez tossed seven shutout innings and the Washington Nationals backed him with four homers Sunday in their 13-2 rout of the New York Mets.

Gonzalez (5-3) scattered three hits, issued a pair of walks and struck out seven in the dominating 119-pitch performance. The left-hander notched his second win in two starts after breaking an eight-appearance winless streak.

Ian Desmond and Kurt Suzuki each smacked a two-run homer and finished with three RBI while Adam LaRoche and Jayson Werth also went deep in the victory.

Denard Span went 3-for-5 with an RBI as the Nats banged out 13 hits in taking the rubber match of a three-game series.

Mets starter Zack Wheeler (1-1) was lit up for five runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.

John Buck drove in both New York runs.
