Watch Gio Gonzalez react to having his no-hitter broken up

And so, Gio Gonzalez saw a no-hitter go up in smoke in the seventh inning Monday night on a hit down the line by pinch hitter Zach Lutz that was thisclose to being foul (video here). Above, Gio's reaction as seen on TV. Yeah, Gio was thinking "foul" all the way; still a one-hit, complete game shutout isn't so bad: Gio said his first thought when he saw Lutz...

Gio Gonzalez throws one-hitter as Nationals clobber 5 home runs in 9-0 win over Mets

Gio Gonzalez stood on the Citi Field mound and stared over the first base line. “That’s foul!” he cried lifting his left arm in protest as if that might change what happened — the chalk flying up a New York Mets’ call-up named Zach Lutz bumping fists with the first base coach a ‘1’ replacing the ‘0’ in the Mets’ hit column. The Washington Nationals have not thrown...

Video: Gio Gonzalez and Adam LaRoche discuss Gio's no-hit bid

Up above, Gio Gonzalez and Adam LaRoche on seeing Gio's no-hit bid get spoiled in the 7th inning on a hit down the line by Zach Lutz past a diving LaRoche. So close.

When a one-hitter gets lost in the sports shuffle

Maybe you didn’t hear about Gio Gonzalez’s one-hitter on Monday night. I wouldn’t blame you if you haven’t. A pinch-hitter in the seventh inning killed Gonzalez’s bid for a no-hitter with a bloop single that picked up chalk on the first-base line. The Washington Nationals went on to wallop the New York Mets, 9-1. It was an obvious must-win game for the Nationals who hold...
