The Nationals looked so good on Friday and Saturday. Since then, they have lost back-to-back games to a pair of last place clubs and missed out on valuable opportunities to move up in the NL East before the all-star break.
The man they call “Double G,” Gio Gonzalez, takes the ball on Wednesday. He’s in a contract year, the final year of a 7-year, $65 million deal he signed back before the 2012 season.
The timing could have been better. Gonzalez will still get some good money but he’s just starting to show some decline in his age 32 season. He’s 6–5 with an ERA under 4.00 but the WHIP is approaching 1.50.
He remains remarkably durable and consistent, however. He’s only given up more than three earned runs in three of his 18 starts, though they have all come since June 9.
Trevor Williams’ season started quite well. He started 4–1 in six April starts, going two outs fewer than 36 full innings (six innings in five and 5.1 in the other) and giving up no more than two runs in any one of them.
He still has a solid WHIP number (1.24) but the runs have started to pile on a little bit since April. Williams is 2–6 since and his ERA is 4.60, nearly exactly twice which he ended April with.
The Phillies roughed him up early in his last start on June 6. He only threw 51 pitches because Clint Hurdle got him out so quickly so he ought to be well-rested for this start, at least. He hasn’t pitched against the Nationals since his rookie season in 2016.
