Gonzalez, Washington's key offseason pitching acquisition, currently has a 20-inning scoreless streak, and is 2-0 on the season with a minuscule 1.52 ERA. On Tuesday, Gonzalez allowed just two hits for the third straight start in besting the San Diego Padres 3-1.
The Dodgers will answer with fellow lefty Chris Capuano, 2-0 on the year with a 3.52 ERA. In his last outing, Capuano gave up just one run over seven innings to earn the win in a 7-2 Dodgers victory over the Braves.
With losses in the first two games of this series, the Nationals have now dropped 16 of their past 19 games at Dodger Stadium.
