Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez was able to throw an inning, in which he allowed a hit. Adam Morgan allowed three hits over the two innings he managed to throw.

Phillies starter Kevin Correia will throw in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader. Stephen Strasburg is projected to start for the Nationals.

Big run support allows Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez to cruise
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez didn't mind waiting and waiting to take the mound in the second inning Sunday against Baltimore. By the time he arrived, he had a 9-0 lead.

"I think he used his curveball a lot," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "He threw some changeups, but for the most part his curveball was effective for him. In a big spot, he got Andrew McCutchen on one and he threw it early in the count, too, which as we've talked about a lot, it just makes his fastball late even better."

Gonzalez didn't allow the huge advantage to shake his concentration. He cruised after the offensive explosion in raising his record to 5-4. He pitched seven shutout innings with two walks and four strikeouts.

It was easily his best outing since he blanked the Mets through seven on May 2. It also ended a four-start slump in which he had surrendered 13 runs in 21 innings. His ERA still stands at a less-than-mediocre 4.41.

"I just think that the last three guys that we've had start games have pitched really well," Williams said. "That sets our tone, certainly. It doesn't mean it's going to happen every day, but I like the way we were aggressive offensively early as well."

Gonzalez will try to shrink it further in Philadelphia next weekend.

Nationals P Gio Gonzalez has start pushed back to Sunday
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Nationals have moved pitcher Gio Gonzalez's projected start to Sunday, according to The Washington Post's Chelsea Janes. 

Gonzalez was originally slated to pitch Saturday. Instead, Joe Ross will go Friday and Max Scherzer on Saturday. Gonzalez will look to have a better showing than his last one, which saw him give up five earned runs in a loss to the Rays on June 15. 

Gonzalez has a 4.82 ERA this season.

Gonzalez has not earned a win in his last four starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday against the Pirates.

Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez developing into groundball pitcher
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez set out this spring to rely more on his two-seam fastball (sinker), and thus far it has resulted in a spike in his groundball rate. His 56.1 percent groundball rate is seventh-highest among qualified starters, which is also above his percentage from last season (44.8 percent) and his career rate (46.6 percent).

“I wanted to work on two-seamers to see what it felt like and then I’ve just been throwing it more often,” Gonzalez said, per The Washington Post. “I feel like I’ve gotten better results than a four-seam fastball. Don’t get me wrong: I still mix in a four-seam fastball. It’s mostly two-seam. I’ve stuck to it and felt stronger with my two-seam.”

Because he is seeking contact, Gonzalez is allowing more hits (9.7 H/9) in 2015, while his strikeout rate is declining (8.5 K/9).

“For me, it’s actually easier to worry about contact than it is strikeouts,” Gonzalez said. “Strikeouts, you can get it when you need it. I’ve gotten my chance to get strikeouts. I think it helps you last a little longer in games when you’re getting more contact. I’m not finding the results I want. They’re finding a hole, they’re getting in there. But once that turns, it’s kind of makes sense.

"It’s what they say: Would you rather strike out 15 and go five, or rather go four strikeouts and go eight, nine innings? If you would have asked me that when I was younger, I would have said the 15. Now, looking back, that’s not how it works. … Strikeouts are very nice. Don’t get me wrong. But then again, so are groundball outs and double plays.”
