Gio Gonzalez turned in his best outing of the 2015 season on Saturday night with seven shutout innings as the Nationals held on to beat the Mets narrowly by the score of 1-0. Now they enter Sunday with a chance to take the series in New York with their third win in four games.
The Nationals will send Doug Fister (1-1, 3.28) to the mound looking for the series victory. He is hoping to bounce back from consecutive bad outings against the Cardinals and Braves.
Fister has allowed eight earned runs in 11 2/3 innings in his last two starts, but has been brilliant against the Mets at 4-0 with a 1.01 ERA through four starts in his career.
Starting for the Mets will be right-hander Dillon Gee (0-1, 4.26). He had a rough start to the year but over his last two starts has allowed just three earned runs through 14 2/3 innings.
We are not on the road for this one, so enjoy the game…
