For the third straight time Thursday, the Nationals were shut out in a Livan Hernandez start, losing 1-0 to the Mets as Dillon Gee and two relievers combined on a three-hitter.

The loss dropped him to .500 for his career at 169-169.

It took Hernandez himself to ruin Gee’s bid for a no-hitter when he singled with two outs in the sixth.  The Nats’ only other hits came courtesy of Alex Cora and Laynce Nix.

Hernandez has been on the wrong side of 1-0 games in back-to-back outings.  Just like last Saturday against the Marlins, he allowed one run over seven innings in this one.  The Nationals were also shut out in a May 8 start in which Hernandez gave up six runs.

In all, the Nats have been shut out in four of Hernandez’s 10 starts.  They scored one or two runs in two of the others.  When the Nationals have scored at least three runs, Hernandez is 3-0 with one no-decision.  For the season, he’s 3-6 with a 3.64 ERA.

    Maybe he knows how to catch, the Twins could use an upgrade.
