Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez solid on Monday, gets no-decision
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/31/15) Left-hander Gio Gonzalez tossed a quality start on Monday, but the Nationals fell to the Cardinals 8-5. Gonzalez allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out four, throwing 55 of his 91 pitches for strikes.
All three runs to score against Gonzalez came in the fourth inning on a trio of RBI singles. Despite leaving the game with the Nationals trailing 3-2, Gonzalez escaped with a no-decision after the Nationals rallied to tie the game. The Cardinals put on a rally of their own, en route to the 8-5 final.
This was a better outing for Gonzalez, who had allowed at least four runs in each of his previous three starts. Still, he struggled through the month of August, going 1-3 with a 5.46 ERA in six outings.
Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez labors through loss
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/26/15) Gio Gonzalez has been in a slump for the Nationals and Wednesday he wasn't able to get out of it, losing his third straight game as the Padres hit him hard.
Gonzalez made it just 4 2/3 innings, the sixth time in his last seven outings he has failed to go more than five innings. He allowed five runs on seven hits while striking out six and walking two.
Gonzalez (9-7) has seen his ERA rise from 3.50 to 4.11 during his losing streak.
Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez struggles again on Friday vs. Brewers
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/21/15) Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez was not effective in his start against the Brewers on Friday. Gonzalez allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits over five innings. He walked two and struck out five in the 10-3 loss.
Gonzalez (9-6, 3.98 ERA) was victimized by a pair of rough innings. He gave up two runs in the third and three more in the fifth, including a two-run home run by Domingo Santana.
With the loss, the Nationals fall a game under .500 for the first time early May. Gonzalez has now posted back-to-back poor outings, as this one followed a six-run performance on Saturday. Overall, he is 2-2 with a 4.16 ERA over his last six starts.
Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez tosses eight scoreless innings Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/11/15) Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez had his longest and most efficient start of the season during Monday's 8-3 win over the Dodgers.
Gonzalez threw eight scoreless innings while giving up seven hits. He also struck out six and walked one. He is now 9-4 with a 3.50 ERA. The eight innings of work were a season high.
Gonzalez is 5-0 over his last eight starts, but has just one quality start over his last four outings.
Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez solid over five in no-decision
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/5/15) A glance at the final score would indicate that Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez was clobbered Wednesday night against Arizona.
Final scores can be deceiving. Gonzalez allowed just two of the 11 runs the Diamondbacks pushed across the plate. He was removed after throwing 95 pitches in five innings and giving up eight hits. He walked one and fanned seven.
Gonzalez did blow a 2-0 lead by yielding a sacrifice fly to Aaron Hill in the third and single to Yasmany Tomas, who scored after Gonzalez was removed in the sixth.
He has surrendered just eight runs in his last 40 2/3 innings over seven starts.

'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.
