Gonzalez, Nationals beat rookie Lamet, Padres 4-1

SAN DIEGO (AP) Gio Gonzalez allowed only five singles and struck out eight as he almost got through the seventh inning to lead the Washington Nationals to a 4-1 victory against the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

The NL East-leading Nationals won three of four against the Padres.

Gonzalez (12-5) settled in after giving up an unearned run in the first inning on two singles and a throwing error by shortstop Wilmer Difo. The left-hander retired 15 of his last 18 batters, including eight straight until allowing a single to Manuel Margot with two outs in the seventh. Manager Dusty Baker decided Gonzalez had gone long enough after 121 pitches and replaced him with Joe Blanton, who struck out Jabari Blash to end the inning.
