Final: Nationals 1, Mets 0

The Nats scored just 1 run behind an RBI single from Ryan Zimmerman in the first, but that's all they would need. RHP Doug Fister dazzled, pitching 6 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out 3 and walking none. Box score

Mets haven't lost consecutive 1-0 games since Sept. 4-5, 1990 at St. Louis & Pittsburgh. Not vs. 1 opponent since April 17-18, 1973 vs Cubs

Your not-so-typical double play

The Royals turned a 6-4-3 double play against the Tigers today -- but not in ordinary fashion. Christian Colon threw to Omar Infante, who tagged out the lone baserunner diving back to second, who threw to Eric Hosmer to complete the DP.

Dillon Gee has completed 5 innings in 51 straight starts -- a franchise record. Had belonged to Dwight Gooden (50).
