On Opening Day, in his Nationals Park debut, Gonzales threw 7 innings of shutout ball, striking out seven and walking none while allowing only 2 hits by the Cincinnati Reds.
That was great, but maybe better was Gio’s single off Mat Latos in the bottom of the 5th.
Best of all? That smile. How can you not love that smile?
