In spite of injuries and four losses to the Braves, the Nationals have a 7-4 record. Gio Gonzalez, who has fired two strong starts already this season, takes the mound for the Nationals. The team lost all five starts he made against the Braves last season, although in three of them he allowed only two runs or less and pitched seven innings. He received little run support in those. He has a career 4.88 ERA in nine starts against the Braves, and a career 4.11 ERA in six starts at Turner Field. The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game here.
