Gio Gonzalez's continued his dominant stretch from the mound. The fact that he stretched out his performance is perhaps even more noteworthy in the Nats' 13-0 win.
Gio Gonzalez needed very little run support against the Cubs. He received a baker's dozen worth anyway.
The Nationals will have the same positional players starting for a fifth straight game. The batting order against the Cubs, that's a bit different. So is Chicago's starting pitching after a blockbuster trade.
After a tough loss on the 4th of July, the Nationals will look to get back into the win column on Saturday against the Cubs.
