Gio Gonzalez makes his first start since May 17; he has been on the disabled list since then with left shoulder inflammation. When he landed on the DL, the Nationals rotation had a 3.99 ERA and ranked 19th in the majors. In the 27 games since his absence, Nationals starters went 14-10 with a major league-leading 2.41 ERA over 175 2/3 innings. They now have the fifth-best ERA in baseball at 3.32. The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game below.
