Latest Mike González Items
The Washington Nationals' bullpen has been nearly impenetrable for the first half of the season, but Sunday it left the door open at the most inopportune of times.
Michael Gonzalez was a member of the Washington Nationals for just more than two weeks when he got Ross Detwiler's ear in the bullpen. Detwiler had made four appearances out of the bullpen after Chien-Ming Wang had bumped him from the rotation, and he'd gotten mixed results.
Down at first base, Adam LaRoche serves as the Washington Nationals' welcoming committee to any runner who's able to reach. This year, he's greeted fewer than in the past, with the team's major league-best pitching staff giving up 114 fewer hits and 32 fewer walks than they had at this time last year.
First, Alexi Ogando watched Albert Pujols circle the bases. Then, Michael Gonzalez. And finally, Darren Oliver.
