Gonzalez looking to get back on track (with lineups)

FLUSHING, N.Y. - This is kind of remarkable given where his season numbers lie at this point, but over his last nine starts, Gio Gonzalez has pitched to a 4.93 ERA.

Over that time, he’s given up 27 runs and 49 hits over 49 1/3 innings.

The last time he threw, Gonzalez delivered his worst start as a member of the Nationals, going just 3 1/3 innings and allowing six earned runs.

That start, ironically enough, came against the same Mets team he’ll face tonight.

He’ll again oppose R.A. Dickey, who allowed three earned over 7 1/3 against the Nats last Thursday.

The Nationals still haven’t released their lineup for today’s game, but here’s the Mets’ starting nine against Gonzalez:

For the Nats:

2B Steve Lombardozzi
RF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
LF Michael Morse
1B Adam LaRoche
SS Danny Espinosa
CF Roger Bernadina
C Jesus Flores
P Gio Gonzalez

For the Mets:

CF Andrew Torres
2B Daniel Murphy
3B David Wright
RF Scott Hairston
1B Ike Davis
LF Jason Bay
SS Ronny Cedeno
C Mike Nickeas
P R.A. Dickey
