ATLANTA -- With the uncertainty surrounding Stephen Starsburgs right elbow, the Washington Nationals may have a greater need for Gio Gonzalez to come through in the postseason.The veteran left-handers turnaround from a dismal middle of the season has made that thought a little less scary for Nationals fans.Gonzalez, who is 11-9 with a 4.27 ERA, has allowed three earned runs or less in 11 of his past 13 outings going into Saturdays start against the Atlanta Braves in the Nationals next-to-last game at Turner Field.Gonzalez is 6-2 over the stretch and is coming off a victory against the Philadelphia Phillies last Sunday in which he allowed just one run and four hits over seven innings.He seemed like a guy on a mission, Washington manager Dusty Baker said Sunday. We talked the other day, and I told him that hes very important in this equation, especially with Stras out. He responded.It was only the fourth time this season that Gonzalez made it through seven innings and he did it on just 92 pitches He got 10 outs on the ground thanks to a pair of double plays.If Strasburg cant pitch in the postseason, the Nationals would likely be left with Gonzalez as their third starter behind Max Scherzer and Tanner Roark, and it has definitely been an up-and-down season for the veteran, who turns 31 on Monday.Gonzalez had a 1.86 ERA through his first eight starts, an 8.10 ERA over his next eight starts, then a 3.10 ERA during his past 11 outings.Gonzalezs worst start recently came against the Braves in Washington on Sept. 6, when he gave up six runs in three innings.My last start didnt go that way, Gonzalez said. A good bounce back. I just wanted to have a good bounce back. As long as I can keep going deep in the game that is important.He allowed just three hits over six scoreless innings against the Braves in a no-decision April 12 and is 4-8 with a 4.70 ERA in his career against Atlanta.Gonzalez will try to help the Nationals inch closer to clinching the NL East. After Trea Turner had four hits and scored four runs and Max Scherzer won his fifth straight decision in Fridays 7-2 win, the Nationals lowered their magic number to six with 15 games remaining.Turner is hitting .462 in 11 games against the Braves. The 23-year-olds third four-hit outing raised his average to .349 in 58 games.Trea had his fingers all over it again, Scherzer said. This guy can absolutely do everything. Ive never seen anybody with this much speed and power from that (slight) frame. He impacts the game is so many different ways. Were asking him to play center field off and hes excelling at that.Josh Collmenter, acquired by the Braves from the Chicago Cubs organization, will start Saturday against the Nationals. He is filling for Mike Foltynewicz, who was hit in the left calf by a line drive on Monday.Collmenter made 15 relief appearances for the Arizona Diamondbacks this season before being released. He signed a minor league deal with the Cubs and made four starts for Triple-A Iowa.The 30-year-old right-hander had a 36-33 record and 3.54 ERA in parts of six seasons with Arizona. He won 10 games in 2011 and 11 in 2014 for the Diamondbacks.The Braves will have first baseman Freddie Freeman back in the lineup after he missed Fridays game to be with his wife, Chelsea.She gave birth to the couples first child, a boy named Frederick Charles Freeman II, on Thursday after a long labor.The babys here, everybodys doing good, but I understand it wasnt an easy go, said Braves interim manager Brian Snitker, who told Freeman to skip the series opener against the Nationals. He needs to regroup.Freeman left at the start of the eighth inning Wednesday against the Marlins after extending his hitting streak to 20 games. He also has a 36-game streak of reaching base safely.Freeman has usually been at his best against the Nationals, hitting .325 with 12 home runs and 54 RBI during his career.Randy Arozarena . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. Matt Wieters . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Steve Carlton .S. -- Nikolaj Ehlers registered a hat trick for the third straight game and Jonathan Drouin had a goal and five assists as the Halifax Mooseheads hammered the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 10-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Red Schoendienst . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan.MILWAUKEE -- When DeMar DeRozan finds his spot, the Milwaukee Bucks learned just how hard he is to stop.DeRozan scored 26 points, including a contested jumper with 16 seconds left over Tony Snell and Giannis Antetokounmpo, to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 105-99 victory over the Bucks on Friday night.The mid-range, thats his hot spot, Snell said. It was a tough shot (against) good defense.DeRozan again tormented Milwaukee and Kyle Lowry scored 19 as Toronto hit a season-high 14 3-pointers to continue its dominance against the Bucks. The Raptors have won 11 of the last 12 meetings, and six straight in Milwaukee.Im not concerned about our offense, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. But until we commit to the defensive end, were kidding ourselves.Antetokounmpo scored 29 points and added 11 assists, while Snell had a season-high 16 points.But with the game on the line, Lowry hit from 27 feet out with 1:06 left and DeRozan knocked down a 16-foot jumper over Snell and Antetokounmpo to make it 101-97.We tried to throw different bodies at him, show him different looks, and he made the shot that counted, Bucks coach Jason Kidd said.What did DeRozan see with two defenders bearing down?The basket, he said.TIP-INSRaptors: DeRozan, who has scored 25 points or more in 13 of 16 games, also finished with four assists, the eighth straight game hes had at least four. . . . Toronto also hit six 3-pointers in the first quarter.Bucks: Milwaukee recalled guard Rashad Vaughn from the NBA Development League, but did not play. The D-League didnt have practice for three days, so we had to bringg him back, Kidd said.dddddddddddd It was not a vacation. . . . It was the first of four `Fear the Deer games this season, featuring black jerseys and an alternate court design. . . . Milwaukees last lead came at 29-27 in the second quarter.THREE-POINT PROWESSTwo nights after the Raptors made 12 3-pointers in a win at Houston, they went 14 of 31 from behind the arc against the Bucks, who came in with the No. 1 defensive 3-point percentage in the league at 30.6 percent.We arent forcing anything, DeRozan said. We have guys who can penetrate and kick, and guys who can make wide open shots.GREAT TRIPThe Raptors completed their longest road trip with a 3-2 record, also including wins at Houston and Denver.We need to get all the wins we can on a road trip, said Terrence Ross, who finished with eight points. It is going to feel good to be back in front of the home crowd, getting to sleep in our own beds.MONROE SIGHTINGRarely seen Bucks big man Greg Monroe, who signed a $50 million, three-year max deal in 2015, scored eight points and adding 10 rebounds in 19 minutes of play.He had received just 20 minutes in the previous four games combined, scoring just eight total points and grabbing eight rebounds.UP NEXTRaptors: Host Philadelphia on Monday to start a season-high stretch of six home games in 11 days.Bucks: At Orlando on Sunday following Tuesdays 93-89 victory against the Magic, when Antetokounmpo notched his first triple-double of the season.
