I'll Have Another- Nat's Win Again

Nationals 4, Red Sox 2

One day after Strasburg's outstanding performance, Gio Gonzalez reminded us all that he ain't to shabby.  Gonzalez went 6.1 innings today and notched his team leading 8th win on the season.  LaRoche and Morse saw their bats come to life, with LaRoche hitting his 10th homer of the year during the 2nd inning to give the Nats an early lead.  Ryan Zimmerman continued to not slump and looks to be in top form for the first time this season.  The offense didn't cross the plate again after their 3 run 4th inning, but Gio and the bullpen didn't need any more help.  Other than Mike Gonzalez, everyone out of the pen looked really sharp and T-clip earned his 2nd save of the series (his 7th overall). 

The Nat's smell blood in the water and will be going for the sweep tomorrow with Jordan Zimmermann on the mound.  The way this team is clicking right now, I wouldn't bet against it.
