The Nationals are mired in a 6 game losing streak and the only way out of it is WIN. Some of the players are making their manager look bad by not executing. Today is Gio Gonzalez’s turn to step up.
Will Dusty Baker go with Wilson Ramos behind the plate instead of Jose Lobaton to catch Gio Gonzalez and will Clint Robinson get the start at 1st base or will it be Daniel Murphy at 1st base and Stephen Drew at 2nd base? Zimmerman has hit Garza well but is it significant what Zim did in 2011 when he went 2-4 against Garza? Maybe Drew at 3rd base today in place of Rendon?
From our sources, we are being told there are no personnel changes today which means don’t expect Trea Turner.
Matt Garza pitches for the Brewers today, and the Nats have faced him several times over the years.
Here are the Nats stats against Matt Garza:
