Gonzalez (11-11) lasted just 3.2 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits in a rain-shortened loss to the Diamondbacks. He also struck out four and walked three.

EDGE Analysis

With Stephen Strasburg out and Joe Ross still being stretched out, Washington is counting on Gonzalez for the postseason, and he is failing to deliver. He hasn't lasted longer than five innings in any of his recent three starts, and Washington has lost all three games. He finishes the regular season with a 4.57 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 171 strikeouts in 177.1 innings.

Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision against the Pirates on Friday, giving up three earned runs on five hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran southpaw wasn't his sharpest and got into some early trouble by giving up an RBI double to Ryan Zimmerman and a two-run shot to Danny Espinosa that plated the former in the second inning. Gonzalez has now gone five innings or less in three of his last four starts, with his only strong effort over that span coming against a Phillies squad that's been hopeless against lefties all season. The 31-year-old will look to wrap up the regular season with his 12th win when he takes on the D-backs next Wednesday.

Gonzalez (11-10) gave up six earned runs on nine hits over 4.1 innings in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Braves. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

Despite displaying solid control and inducing 11 swinging strikes, Gonzalez was still touched up by the Braves for six earned runs for the second time in the last three starts. Gonzalez does have quality starts in his three other outings over his last five trips to the mound, but two of those efforts have notably come against an anemic Philies offense. Gonzalez saw a five-decision winning streak snapped with Saturday's loss, but does have double-digit victories for seven straight seasons.

Gonzalez (11-9) allowed just one run on four hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out five in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

His only real mistake resulted in a Tommy Joseph solo shot, Gonzalez rebounded nicely from Tuesday's dud against the Braves and has now turned in a quality start in three of his last four outings. He'll get another crack at the Braves on Saturday in Atlanta.

Gonzalez recorded just nine outs Tuesday, allowing six earned runs on eight hits while striking out four and taking a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez started the fourth inning but was removed after giving up a pair of hits before he recorded an out. After allowing just two hits in his last start, Gonzalez was knocked around by a Braves team that is next-to-last in runs scored. Gonzalez has had a down year by his standards, his 4.40 ERA being his worst since 2010. While he still has a winning record at 10-9, Gonzalez is now on the wrong side of 30 years old and seems to be on the decline.

Gonzalez (10-9) was dominating Wednesday, throwing six innings while allowing just one run on two hits and a walk, striking out four to earn his 10th win of the season against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez's lone blemish was a solo home run by Freddy Galvis in the fifth inning. Gonzalez is now 4-1 with a 3.26 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over his last seven starts, lowing his ERA to 4.14 on the year. While that would be the highest ERA of Gonzalez's career, he's still striking out nearly a batter an inning, and his 1.31 WHIP is an improvement over the 1.42 mark he posted in 2015.

Gonzalez (9-9) gave up two earned runs on four hits and a walk over six innings in Friday's 8-5 victory over the Rockies. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

After a tough luck no-decision in his last start, Gonzalez insured himself a victory by largely shutting down a potent Rockies offense. The veteran southpaw surrendered only a second-inning sacrifice fly to Daniel Descalso and a fourth-inning RBI double to Nick Hundley, otherwise cruising to his ninth overall victory and third in his last three decisions. The 30-year-old will look to get above .500 when he takes on the Phillies next Wednesday.

Gonzalez allowed four runs, three of which were earned, on six hits and three walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings, but received no decision Sunday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

After seeing his ERA balloon to 4.81 on June 30, Gonzalez has now held opponents to three earned runs or fewer in eight of his last nine starts to lower his ERA to 4.30 on the year. Despite the short-term improvement, the 30-year-old has seen his ERA rise in each of the last four seasons. He'll make his next start Friday against the Rockies.

Gonzalez (8-9) pitched five innings, allowing four runs, seven hits and one walk while striking out five Indians in Wednesday's win.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez picked up his eighth win, but he wasn't near his best Wednesday. He was given a 4-1 lead after two innings, but allowed the Indians to come back and tie the game in the fourth. The southpaw's five innings marked his shortest outing over his last eight games, and the four earned runs Gonzalez allowed were the most he's surrendered since June. With that said, the veteran grinded through the 103-pitch battle, inducing an impressive 16 swinging strikes, to win back-to-back starts for just the second time all year. Gonzalez will go for a season-high three straight victories in his next start Monday at hitter-friendly Coors Field in Colorado.

Gonzalez (7-9) gave up just an earned run on two hits and a walk over seven innings in Friday's 5-1 victory over the Giants. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran southpaw was in early-season form, giving up only a solo homer to Angel Pagan in the fourth and throwing an efficient 104 pitches over his seven innings. After a difficult late May-late June stretch that saw him drop six straight decisions, Gonzalez has rebounded with victories in four out of his last six, and has given up just seven runs (five earned) over the 25.1 innings covering his last four starts. He'll try to extend this recent stretch of success when he takes on the Indians next Wednesday.
