Gonzalez returns, Lobaton sits in Astros finale

The Nationals end a two-game series against the Astros tonight, sending left-hander Gio Gonzalez to the mound in hopes of finishing off a sweep.

Gonzalez was activated off the 15-day disabled list today after spending time on the shelf with left shoulder inflammation.

He'll have most of the Nats' regular lineup behind him, the lone exception being his batterymate. Sandy Leon will catch Gonzalez.
