Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez was stellar today for Team USA in their game against Puerto Rico in the first elimination round of the World Baseball Classic. In the game at Miami’s Marlins Stadium, he threw five scoreless innings, allowing three hits with no walks while striking out five, and leaves the game with a 3-0 lead. If the USA advances, they will play the Dominican Republic in the next round.

I've loved baseball all my life. As a kid, I went to O's games with my dad, including Cal Ripken's last game. Fortunately, the Nats came to town just as I was getting old enough to develop a fanhood. I guess I really dodged a bullet there. I was at the first game at RFK and the last, but I'll never forget the first game at Nats Park. Watching Zimmerman's walk-off soar into the night sky was a truly formative experience in my life, and is certainly one of the reasons I'm so passionate about the Nationals now.
