Nationals' Gio Gonzalez stays strong on the mound in Saturday win
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/25/15) Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez was the beneficiary of a nine-run offensive outburst, as Washington beat the Pirates 9-3 on Saturday. Gonzalez allowed three runs (one earned) on five hits over six-plus innings. He struck out five and did not walk a batter, and was lifted after throwing just 74 pitches.
Gonzalez (8-4) dropped his ERA to 3.83 with the solid effort on Saturday. He blanked the Pirates for the first five innings, but ran into some trouble in the sixth, thanks in-part to a fielding miscue that led to two runs.
He was pulled from the game after five innings with his team leading 4-0 as he was feeling ill. He was receiving fluids by the training staff during the game, according to the Washington Post. There is currently no indication that Gonzalez is in danger of missing his next start.
Gonzalez has been rolling lately, going 4-0 with a 1.45 ERA over his last five starts.

Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez allows one run in no-decision on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/10/15) Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez pitched well against the Orioles on Friday, but did not factor in the decision. Gonzalez allowed one run on six hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out five, but the Orioles would win 3-2 in walk-off fashion on Friday.
The only run to score on Gonzalez came on a fourth-inning home run by Adam Jones. Otherwise, the Gonzalez was able to work out of trouble and keep his club in the game.
Gonzalez lowered his ERA to 3.99, the first time it's been under 4.00 since May 8, as he has allowed a total of two earned runs in 20 innings of work over his last three 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.
