On September 5, 2012 — Gio Gonzalez wins his 18th game of the year when the Nationals hit six homers for a second consecutive game, although he does not need such generosity, hurling 7 scoreless innings. The Nats beat the Cubs, 9 – 1. The Mets’ R.A. Dickey also picks up his 18th win in beating the Cardinals, 6 -2. The two pitchers are tied for the major league lead in wins.
