Nationals’ Gio Gonzalez Pitches 20th Victory, First in Majors

Washington Nationals lefthander Gio Gonzalez became the first 20-game winner in Major League Baseball after a 10-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Gonzalez, 27, went seven innings in the Nationals’ win over the Brewers yesterday, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out five at Nationals Park.

“In a way, you kind of smile about it, because we finally reached our goal,” said Gonzalez, who had targeted 20 wins this season with his personal trainer. “Now it’s time to change it up and continue to try and get better goals and higher goals.”

Gonzalez, who holds a 20-8 record, also is the sixth pitcher in history to win 20 games in his first season in the National League after pitching in the American League, according to Elias Sports Bureau. He joins Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies (2010), Danny Jackson of the Cincinnati Reds (1988), Al Downing of the Los Angeles Dodgers (1971) and Carl Mays (1924) and George Suggs (1910) of the Reds.

The Nationals sent four prospects to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for Gonzalez, who signed a $42 million, five-year deal in the offseason.

Ryan Zimmerman and Ian Desmond each hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning as the Nationals, whose 92-59 record is the best in the majors, broke the Brewers’ six-game winning streak.

The team already has secured a postseason spot.

Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta (2-1) gave up three runs and five hits, along with four walks and a wild pitch in 2 2/3 innings.
