The Nationals have not lost consecutive games since Aug. 5, which is a pretty remarkable run. Gio Gonzalez will be tasked with keeping it alive. He’ll try to build off his last outing, a nice bounce-back start in which he recaptured his trademark curveball. He’ll face left-hander Cole Hamels, whose is facing the Nationals for approximately the 10,000th time in  his career. Talk about the game right here.
