The Phillies shut out the Nationals 3-0, but left-hander Gio Gonzalez continues to pitch well. Gonzalez allowed just one earned run in 6 1/3 innings. He allowed a sacrifice fly in the sixth, a throwing error scored a run in the seventh and the lefty left with the bases loaded ... Read More
Gio Gonzalez was strong again, but the Nationals couldn't provide any offense to help him out on Wednesday night.
The Nationals will aim to bounce back from their series-opening loss against the Phillies with Gio Gonzalez on the mound.
Despite yesterday’s light offensive showing, and steadily slow starts from several regulars, Nationals Manager Dusty Baker is sticking with his go-to lineup Wednesday night against the Phillies. Anthony Rendon (.241) and Ryan Zimmerman (.250) will continue to sandwich Bryce Harper, whom the Phillies pitched around three times Tuesday night. Michael A. Taylor, who has two […]
The Nationals rode a high-octane offense and an effective Gio Gonzalez to beat the Twins on Friday night.

Up above, video of Gio Gonzalez flipping out in the dugout after giving up seven runs in the first two innings of Sunday's start in Oakland (final line: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 2 HR). Ugly.
