Gio Gonzalez tosses fantastic start, but can't win
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez turned in a fantastic start Thursday against the Diamondbacks. 

Gonzalez allowed four hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. Gonzalez did a good job limiting the Diamondbacks early. He was able to get through the first two innings by facing the minimum six batters. He did allow a hit in the second, but got out of it with a double-play. Gonzalez was also challenged in the third, putting the first two men on. After a sac bunt moved them into scoring position, Gonzalez was able to keep them from scoring. He loaded the bases in the fifth inning, but was able to get Cliff Pennington to pop out to end the threat. 

Gonzalez was matched by Wade Miley throughout the start, and ultimately wound up with a no-decision. He'll take on the Phillies in his next start.

Poor curveball command hurting Gio Gonzalez
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez's string of rough starts continued Saturday against the Pirates, as the left-hander lasted just five innings in a no-decision. Gonzalez is winless in his last seven starts, going 0-5 with a 5.20 ERA.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Gonzalez's struggles are related to his lack of command with his curveball.

"He’ll continue to work on it," Williams said, per The Washington Post. "Next time out, hopefully he’s got that. But his next ‘pen will be really important for him to establish that slot and command with the curveball. If he doesn’t have it, the other team can just eliminate it from their thought process. It makes it more difficult for him to get guys out. He’ll work on it hard next time he throws a ‘pen."

The curveball has been Gonzalez's go-to pitch. In 2012, his curveball was worth 10.2 runs better than average, and 7.7 runs last season, according to FanGraphs.com. In 2014, it is only worth 1.2 runs more than average.

"It’s just trying to find a feel for it," he said. "And so far, it’s just I’ve got to keep working at it. Maybe something will click."

Gio Gonzalez strikes out seven vs. Pirates
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision Saturday after giving up three earned runs on seven hits and two walks in five innings and striking out seven in his team's 4-3 win over the Pirates.

Gonzalez gave up all three runs in the third inning, and his outing was a short one after taking 102 pitches to get through five frames. He took the loss in four straight starts before Saturday's no-decision. Gonzalez owns a 4.06 ERA and 121:47 K:BB ratio in 113 innings. He's scheduled to face the Diamondbacks Thursday.

Gio Gonzalez can't solve the Braves in Atlanta
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez failed to make it past the fifth inning and took the loss Sunday night in Atlanta, dropping to 6-9 on the season. The left-hander permitted two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out eight over 4 2/3 innings of a 3-1 defeat.

Gonzalez has not won a decision since July 5 against the Cubs. Since his last win, he is 0-5 with a 5.17 ERA in six starts. He will look to bounce back Saturday at home against Pittsburgh.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez was charged with a loss Tuesday after giving up four earned runs on six hits and two walks in six-plus innings and striking out six in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Mets.

Gonzalez (6-8) has now lost three straight outings and is 0-4 in his last five starts. He gave up a run in the first inning and another in the second before clamping down until the seventh, when he put two on base before exiting. Both runners would come around to score, leaving Gonzalez with a 4.01 ERA and 106:41 K:BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Braves Sunday.
