Phillies-Nationals Preview

(AP) -- Among the unexpected stories of this season, few have been more surprising than the inconsistencies of the Washington Nationals' starting rotation.

Following yet another poor outing, the Nationals will turn to Gio Gonzalez on Sunday afternoon to face the Philadelphia Phillies and Aaron Harang.

Washington (25-18) has enjoyed steady performances from starters Max Scherzer and Jordan Zimmermann, who've combined for a 2.31 ERA, but the remainder of the staff has failed to meet expectations.
