Mets Vs. Nationals: Tom Gorzelanny Searches For First Win Of Season

The pressure is on Washington Nationals starter Tom Gorzelanny (0-2, 4.96 ERA) Wednesday night, as the team turns to the southpaw to help them snap a three-game losing streak while trying to snap a five-game winning streak by the New York Mets at the same time. Gorzelanny hasn't had a whole lot of success in his first three starts as a Nationals pitcher. He has given up home runs in every one of his starts this season and four in total on the year, which leads all Nationals pitchers.

He will be opposed by the Mets' R.A. Dickey (1-3, 4.10 ERA), who possesses a dangerous knuckleball. However, Dickey has lost his last three starts. The Nationals faced off against Dickey before on April 8 and beat him 6-2 in the Mets' Citi Field opener. Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos is in the lineup for the third game in a row to give Dickey trouble, thanks to a 3-for-4, three RBI, two home-run performance Tuesday night.
