The Nationals hope to avoid a sweep on Wednesday at the hands of the Angels. They send left-hander Gio Gonzalez, and perhaps the team’s most consistent starter so far this season, to the mound against the high-scoring Angels lineup. Gonzalez (3-1, 2.88 ERA) is opposed by right-hander Jered Weaver (1-2, 4.74 ERA). Mike Trout is 0 for 9 against Gonzalez. Albert Pujols leads the majors with eight home runs. The lineups are here.
