Gio Gonzalez hits a solo home run (Video)


That video up there is of Gio Gonzalez, who took a first-pitch curve yard during the fifth inning on Wednesday. It was second career homer for the Nats pitcher, who also threw six scoreless innings.

The best part, at least the part that made me laugh out loud, was watching Gonzalez tuck his trademark smile away as he’s rounding first. You can almost see him talking himself into looking serious, until he crosses the plate and allows the grin to come out. And of course he came out for a curtain call.
