Nationals have no plans to shut Tanner Roark down
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark has thrown 166 2/3 innings this season after combining for 159 1/3 innings across all levels last season, but the Nationals have no intentions to shut him down, MLB.com reports.

"We are in the business of winning games and we're going to continue to give him the ball and have him pitch for us because he's been really, really good," manager Matt Williams said. "But we have to keep on eye where he gets to and how many innings he gets to."

While that Nationals will monitor his workload, Roark should be able to make at least four or five more starts before regular season ends. He owns a 2.81 ERA and 120:37 K:BB ratio in 166 2/3 innings.

Gio Gonzalez can't win despite quality start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez turned in a quality start Tuesday against the Phillies.

Gonzalez allowed three runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out four and walked one during the outing. Home runs proved to be the difference for Gonzalez. He was strong early on, tossing four scoreless innings to open the game. Gonzalez started giving up runs in the fifth. Grady Sizemore tripled to lead off the inning, and Freddy Galvis followed it up with a two-run shot. Gonzalez was able to settle in for the rest of the inning. The long ball struck again in the sixth. Cody Asche belted a solo shot to give the Phillies a three-run lead. 

The Nationals managed to battle back, giving Gonzalez a no-decision. He’ll take on the Dodgers in the next start.
