Gonzalez dominates, Nationals beat Cubs 3-0

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Gio Gonzalez pitched two-hit ball over seven innings, and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago Cubs 3-0 Saturday in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

Gonzalez had his way with one of the weakest lineups in the majors, outperforming Dallas Beeler in the right-hander's major league debut.

Anthony Rendon had three hits, including a two-out double against Beeler in the sixth before scoring the game's first run on a wild pitch. He added an RBI triple off Justin Grimm and came home on a sacrifice fly by Adam LaRoche against Wesley Wright in a two-run eighth.
