Washington Nationals vs Chicago Cubs: GameThread 37 Of 162

New, 470 comments

Washington Nationals' lefty Gio Gonzalez takes the mound on Mother's Day in the nation's capital for the rubber match with the visiting Chicago Cubs. Gonzalez bounced back from what could have been a rough start to his last outing and helped the Nats beat the Pittsburgh Pirates last Sunday. Can Gio do it again?
