NEW YORK (AP) — Dillon Gee beat Washington for the third time this season and the New York Mets scored the go-ahead run when third baseman Ryan Zimmerman and shortstop Ian Desmond made errors on the same play to top the Nationals 5-1 Saturday.

Daniel Murphy delivered three hits, and first baseman Josh Satin started a pair of double plays for the Mets. The Nationals fell back to .500, losing to the team with the worst home record in the majors.

Gee (6-7) limited Washington to one run in six innings, working around six hits and three walks.

Taylor Jordan (0-1) lasted 4 1-3 innings in his big league debut. He was promoted from Double-A and gave up three runs, although a pair of errors by Zimmerman helped make two of them unearned.

Jordan gave up five hits, walked two, hit a batter and struck out one.

BRAVES 11, DIAMONDBACKS 5

ATLANTA (AP) — Jason Heyward hit a tying RBI double, and Andrelton Simmons scored the go-ahead run on the same play in a seven-run eighth inning that lifted Atlanta over Arizona.

The Braves rallied for their 23rd comeback victory, tops in the National League. Atlanta has won two straight and four of five.

The Diamondbacks have lost four of five.

Braves starter Tim Hudson extended his winless streak to 10 straight starts, allowing five hits, four runs and four walks with two strikeouts in 5 2-3 innings.

David Hernandez (4-5) retired the first batter he faced in the eighth, but pinch-hitter Reed Johnson and Simmons were both hit by pitches before Heyward doubled.

The Diamondbacks took a 5-4 lead in the eighth on Miguel Montero's fifth homer, a solo shot, off Jordan Walden. Walden (3-1) earned the win despite allowing three hits and one run in one inning.

ROCKIES 2, GIANTS 1

DENVER (AP) — Nolan Arenado hit a game-ending single with two outs in the ninth inning to lift Colorado over San Francisco, which has lost six straight for the first time in three years.
