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.
Gio Gonzalez, Doug Fister to pitch Saturday, Sunday for Nationals
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) With Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer (thumb) set to rejoin the rotation Friday against the Mets, Gio Gonzalez and Doug Fister are getting pushed back in the rotation. Gonzalez will start Saturday and Fister will pitch Sunday.
Gonzalez is 1-2 with a 5.01 ERA through four starts, while Fister is 1-1 with a 3.28 ERA through four starts.
Nationals' Gio Gonzalez surrenders six runs in loss vs. Marlins
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez took the loss Sunday, giving up six earned runs on 10 hits and one walk in five-plus innings while racking up eight strikeouts in his team's 6-2 defeat against the Marlins.
Gonzalez (1-2) pitched three scoreless innings but surrendered a bases-loaded triple in the fourth to fall behind for good. He gave up another RBI triple during a two-run fifth inning, and the Marlins added one more run in the sixth after the starter was removed earlier in the inning.
Gonzalez owns a 5.01 ERA and 22:11 K:BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mets Friday in New York.
Nationals' Gio Gonzalez pitches six shutout innings in no decision
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez pitched six shutout innings but left with a no decision on Tuesday.
Gonzalez scattered eight hits and four walks, striking out four. He threw 67 strikes in 107 pitches.
Gonzalez next starts on Sunday against Miami and Dan Haren.
Nationals' Gonzalez owns 1.17 ERA in three starts vs. Cardinals
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) It has not been a smooth start to the season for Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez, who has a 5.11 ERA after two starts. He is back on the mound Tuesday against the Cardinals for his third start of the season, and perhaps facing St. Louis will get the lefty back on track.
Gonzalez has had pretty good success against St. Louis over the last three seasons. He is 2-1 with a 1.17 ERA and 0.83 WHIP in three starts against the Cardinals. He has not allowed more than two runs in any of those outings, while posting a 21-to-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
The Cardinals enter play Tuesday with 43 runs, which is tied for the eighth-lowest total in the majors.
Eye on MLB, April 10: Red Sox outlast Yankees 6-5 in 19 innings
At 6 hours, 49 minutes, it was the longest game by time in Red Sox history. After Chase Headley tied the score with a home run in the bottom of the ninth, Boston went ahead three times in extra innings, taking a lead for the final time on a sacrifice fly by Mookie Betts.

'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.
