Jeremy Hellickson (1-1) 5.221 ERA

PHILLIES: The last time Hellickson faced Washington, he fared worse than he did in his rough follow-up outing against the Mets. Unable to make it out of the fifth in his last two starts, he will look to return to not sucking complete butt.

Gio Gonzalez (1-0) 1.42 ERA

NATIONALS: Gonzalez is off to the fastest start of his career in Washington. He has surrendered three earned runs in 19 innings (1.42 ERA) and has cut down his walks to 1.9 per nine innings, compared to a career average of 3.8 per nine. He also looks like he was dipped in a bucket of canola oil, but that's none of our business.
