Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez allows six runs in five IP for no-decision
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/19/15) Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez gave up six runs on six hits in five innings Tuesday for a no-decision against the Yankees.|
They Yankees broke through on Gonzalez in the fourth inning when they rallied for four runs and would add two more in the fifth with Mark Teixeira's two-run homer.
It's the second straight start that Gonzalez got roughed up in five innings of work, as he allowed five runs on nine hits in five innings for a no-decision against the Braves.
Gonzalez returns to the mound Sunday for his next start against the Phillies.
Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez struggles against Diamondbacks
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez can't seem to string together more than a couple strong performances without tossing in a dud.
He provided the latest example Wednesday at Arizona. After allowing two runs in 14 innings over his previous two starts, he yielded five in five innings in a no-decision to the Diamondbacks. He gave up nine hits with two walks and three strikeouts.
Gonzalez surrendered a run-scoring single to Nick Ahmed in the second, RBi double to Paul Goldschmidt in the third and single to drive in another run to A.J. Pollock in the fifth.
He is set to start against the Yankees next Tuesday.
Nationals' Gio Gonzalez bulks up to help pitching arm
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez has added 18 pounds since the start of last season. He hopes that will help him avoid injury and also add power to his pitches.
"Healthy body, healthy arm," he said, per the Washington Post. "It’s encouraging to keep my weight up. … Stronger, I would like, but realistically, I’m a pitcher. I’m not that strong. Just trying to maintain my weight as much as possible. I don’t want to drastically lose weight. That’s why I try to load throughout the offseason and eat as much as I can and throughout the season I lose it a lot."
Nationals P Gio Gonzalez strikes out 8 in win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez gave up two earned runs in Friday night's 9-2 win over the Braves.
Gonzalez went seven innings and allowed five hits and one walk. It was a particularly strong outing as Gonzalez struck out eight batters. In his past two games, Gonzalez has pitched a total of 14 innings with 17 strikeouts.
He's now averaging 6 1/2 strikeouts per game.
Gonzalez improves to 4-2 with the win and has a 3.62 ERA for the season.
His next start is projected for May 13 against the Diamondbacks.
Nationals LHP Gio Gonzalez rebounds by shutting down Mets
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) There are bounce-back games and there are bounce-back games. Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez rebounded like Bill Russell on Saturday.
Gonzalez was coming off a defeat to Miami in which he allowed 10 hits and six runs in five innings when he pitched Saturday against the hot Mets. And he shut them out through seven, yielding six hits with no walks and nine strikeouts.
The left-hander gave up two hits and a walk in the first before settling down. He allowed more than one baserunner in an inning only once the rest of the way.
Gonzalez, whose ERA fell from 5.01 to 3.86, will seek to shrink it further Friday against Atlanta.
Eye on MLB, April 10: Red Sox outlast Yankees 6-5 in 19 innings

'Back in the Saddle,' Harvey leads Mets past Nationals 6-3
WASHINGTON (AP) Matt Harvey was rarin' to go in his return from Tommy John surgery, right down to the knobs of his bats labeled with his nickname in all caps: DARK KNIGHT.
|2014 Summary: Other than his ERA rising for a second straight season, Gio Gonzalez's ratios held pretty steady in 2014. In fact, some of them -- namely, his strikeout, walk and home run rates -- actually improved, which suggests his little rough patch just before his month-long absence for shoulder inflammation helped inflate that ERA. It was 3.08 after the injury compared to a 4.62 ERA before it.|
Playing time status: Apart from the shoulder injury, which clearly had no lasting effects, Gonzalez has been remarkably healthy over the years, so his durability isn't in question. His endurance, on the other hand, leaves something to be desired. In three years with the Nationals, he has yet to go 200 innings, falling just short in his two healthy seasons.
2015 Outlook: Now two years removed from a near Cy Young campaign, Gonzalez's shortcomings aren't so easily dismissed. Because he has swing-and-miss stuff but below-average control, his pitch counts often prevent him from going more than six innings, which also limits his wins potential even on an expected contender. On a per-inning basis, he'd be a top 20 starting pitcher, but unfortunately, Fantasy doesn't work that way. He'll help you make up ground in strikeouts after the top 30 starting pitchers are off the board, but be careful not to overvalue him.
