Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez solid on Monday, gets no-decision
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Left-hander Gio Gonzalez tossed a quality start on Monday, but the Nationals fell to the Cardinals 8-5. Gonzalez allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out four, throwing 55 of his 91 pitches for strikes.

All three runs to score against Gonzalez came in the fourth inning on a trio of RBI singles. Despite leaving the game with the Nationals trailing 3-2, Gonzalez escaped with a no-decision after the Nationals rallied to tie the game. The Cardinals put on a rally of their own, en route to the 8-5 final.

This was a better outing for Gonzalez, who had allowed at least four runs in each of his previous three starts. Still, he struggled through the month of August, going 1-3 with a 5.46 ERA in six outings.

"We don't have any updates because he hasn't thrown a ball -- yet," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "We'll have more information hopefully [Tuesday]."

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon finished off his team's victory Sunday, running his record to 22-for-22 in save opportunities this season. 

Papelbon gave up two hits and faced a first-and-third situation with Miami's Dee Gordon at the plate in a 7-4 game, but got Gordon to ground to short to finish the contest. 

Papelbon now has five saves since being dealt to Washington in late July.

Strasburg is 8-6 this season with a 4.35 ERA.
