Can Gio Gonzalez push the Nationals to the NLCS?

The Nationals are set to face the defending champion Cardinals tomorrow evening for a chance to move on to play the Giants in the NLCS. Despite the series being tied at two games apiece, the Cardinals have been looking like the better team in the series, thanks in part to a pair of ugly losses by the Nationals.

A favorite heading into the playoffs, the Nationals won close games in the first and fourth games but were out-scored 20-4 in the two middle games. However, a win earlier today gives them a chance to make up for their ugly losses and stay on track for a chance to reach the World Series if they can beat the veteran Cardinals.
