Nats’ Gonzalez throws too many pitches

WASHINGTON – In Wednesday’s 11-4 loss to the D-Backs, Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez threw 95 pitches in five-plus innings. He allowed two runs, walked one and struck out seven. The fourth inning was the only time he had an easy inning.

Gonzalez was at a loss for words after game, but knew he had to go deep in the game to save the bullpen and that didn’t happen.

“Right now, I have to focus on my job and pitch more than five innings,” Gonzalez said. “I felt great. I can’t do anything about [the D-Backs] contact. Every ball they hit, they were putting it in play. That’s just basically it.”
