The Pope is here. Fall is here. The Orioles are here. Gio Gonzalez is on the mound. Lots happening.
Play ball! @GioGonzalez47 delivers a strike to Nolan Reimold and the #Nats and #Orioles are underway!
Even with the error, an efficient and confident first from Gio. 10 pitches. One strikeout.
Now Gio walks back-to-back hitters, and Lobaton goes to talk to him. From earlier, for a sense of what he's saying: http://t.co/dWPes8EsCv
Walks can kill you. Ask Gio Gonzalez. #Nats #Nationals #MLB

#Nats' lefty Gio Gonzalez with a 20-pitch 4th. 63P total after four. Still 2-0 #Orioles in the series opener in #Nationals Park.
