Gonzalez pitched a gem in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets, tossing seven scoreless innings with a season-high 12 strikeouts. He allowed a single and two walks.
Gonzalez was scheduled to start Wednesday, but the game was rained out, giving him an extra day of rest for the second straight week. The veteran lefty had traded strikeouts for more positive results over the last couple of months, but that was not the case Thursday, as he fanned 10 or more batters for the first time this season. Overall, he ends the season with a 3.57 ERA and 162 strikeouts in 158.2 innings.
