After a brutal 8-0 loss to the Cardinals on Thursday, the Nationals have the second-worst ERA among starters in baseball at 5.21. Only the Diamondbacks are worse — and considerably worse, at 7.63 ERA. The Braves, on the other hand, without Brandon Beachy, Kris Medlen and Gavin Floyd, lead the majors with a 1.58 starters ERA. Gio Gonzalez takes the mound after a clunker against the Braves in Atlanta on Sunday. Despite that game, he still leads the Nationals starters with a 3.50 ERA. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game below.

James Wagner joined the Post in August 2010, wrote about high school sports across the region for two years and has covered the Nationals since the middle of the 2012 season.
