Gio Gonzalez and R.A. Dickey square off again, this time at Citi Field.
NEW YORK — It's only been five days since Gio Gonzalez and R.A. Dickey last faced each other, a matchup that didn't quite live up to its billing. Gonzalez lasted a season-low 3 1/3 innings, giving up six runs. Gonzalez hasn't pitched up to his All-Star standards over the last month or so. The Nationals could certainly use a return to his peak form moving forward.
Dickey, meanwhile, hasn't lost any of his last 16 starts. He's 2-0 with a 1.84 ERA this season against the Nats, who like everyone else in the NL this season have had all kinds of trouble with the veteran knuckleballer.
Plenty of updates to come, so please check back often…
