Diamondbacks-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals have proved too inconsistent to stay atop the NL East and even their most reliable starter of late hasn't pitched too deep in recent outings.

Gio Gonzalez will try to last a little longer in Wednesday night's matchup against the Arizona Diamondbacks while earning a fifth consecutive win.

Washington (55-50) has watched its three-game lead in the division evaporate during a 6-11 stretch and fell out of first place with its fourth consecutive loss in Monday's opener. The Nationals rebounded Tuesday to stay within a game of the New York Mets with a 5-4 victory, and Wilson Ramos provided the tiebreaking two-run single in the eighth.
