Gomes isn't starting Saturday's game against the Yankees. Gomes had started in each of the last six games and went 9-for-24 with three home runs, a double, six RBI and four runs during that time. Alex Avila will start behind the dish and bat eighth.
Gomes went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer and a strikeout in Friday's 11-4 win over the Yankees. Gomes homered in his first plate appearance but failed to get on base in any of his other at-bats. However, the 33-year-old has been on a tear recently, as he's hit .375 with three home runs, a double, six RBI and four runs in his last six games.
Gomes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Atlanta. His fourth-inning blast was the only offense the Nats could muster off Max Fried. Gomes is locked in right now, going 7-for-15 over the last four games with a double and two of his three homers on the year as he looks to prove last year's .284/.319/.468 slash line was no fluke.
Gomes went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored during Saturday's 7-2 win over Miami. The 33-year-old was 0-for-14 across his past four games, but he went deep off Paul Campbell during the fourth inning to pad Washington's early lead. Gomes has a .227/.277/.386 slash line with two home runs, a double, seven RBI and five runs in 13 games this season.
Gomes will sit Friday against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Gomes and fellow catcher Alex Avila have now alternated starts for eight straight games. If the pattern continues, expect Gomes to return to the lineup Saturday but head back to the bench for Sunday's game.
