WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals posted football-like numbers in routing the Chicago Cubs on Saturday with Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III watching from the stands. Acheter Air Max 90 Pas Cher . The way Gio Gonzalez is pitching, it was much more than they needed. Gonzalez pitched eight sparkling innings and Ryan Zimmerman tied a career high with four hits and drove in three runs as the Nationals roughed up the Chicago Cubs without recently traded Jeff Samardzija for a 13-0 victory. "Today he didnt have the velocity he did in Chicago, but nevertheless when you can throw your breaking stuff for strikes then it makes your fastball look better," manager Matt Williams said after Gonzalez defeated Chicago for the second Saturday in a row. "Hes relied on (his curveball and changeup). If he gets in a jam he can throw either one of those, can use either one as a strikeout pitch," Williams added. Jayson Werth and Anthony Rendon added three hits and two RBIs apiece for the Nationals on a day the Cubs were forced to start Carlos Villanueva (4-6) following the trade of Samardzija, the scheduled starter, and Jason Hammel to the Oakland Athletics. "Somebody told me that earlier," Rendon said of the change. "I didnt even know who we were facing to begin with. I just show up." Washington netted a season high in runs and hits (19), including eight doubles but no home runs. "(The trade) had nothing to do with any of the things that happened today we spit out a bad ballgame," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said before the question could be asked. He added he doesnt think it will be an issue going forward. "I dont. You had two things happen," Renteria said. "You had Gio who threw really well. So he stifles out offence pretty much and so that combined with us giving up a lot of runs it kind of looks like, Wow -- you know -- whats going on? Its just baseball." Gonzalez (6-4) allowed four hits, while striking out seven and walked one. He was lifted after throwing 109 pitches. Hes now thrown 29 consecutive scoreless innings against Chicago and 22 overall. After spending a month on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, Gonzalez is 3-0 in four starts since his return. Villanueva was pulled after the first four Nationals reached base in the third inning. He was charged with four runs on five hits. Chris Rusin, called up Saturday from Triple-A Iowa, was roughed up for five runs on nine hits over 3 2-3 innings. Justin Ruggiano had two hits for Chicago, which had won four straight. Williams flipped left-hander Bryce Harper and right-hander Rendon in the batting order, putting Rendon back in the 2-hole and Harper sixth against righty Villanueva. "Bryce is a little tick off (his timing)," Williams said before the game. Harper (1 for 3 with a walk Saturday) is 4 for 18 since returning from the disabled list. After Scott Hairston hit for Denard Span in the seventh, Hairston went to left field and Harper shifted to centre. Harper helped build the games first run Saturday. After Zimmerman singled leading off the second, Harper bunted him to second base and Zimmerman scored on Desmonds single. Washington sent 10-men to the plate in the third as they broke the game open and chased Villanueva. It was his fifth start of the season in 23 appearances. Span started the inning off with a single, and Rendon, Werth, Zimmerman, Ian Desmond and Wilson Ramos had RBI hits. Adam LaRoche scored on Rusins wild pitch. "After that its just go out there and attack the strike zone," Gonzalez said. "Just try to stay consistent in the strike zone." When Gonzalez singled in the seventh, every Washington starter had hit safely. NOTES: Washingtons Danny Espinosa pinch hit in the eighth, his first at-bat since June 28. ...

Im sure you heard Peter Forsbergs comments last week regarding Canadian referees in the gold medal game. Seems to me that he was questioning the integrity and impartiality.DETROIT - Dominic Raiola spent 14 seasons with the Detroit Lions and endured some of the most difficult years in franchise history.Perhaps that explains the bond he still feels toward the city, even though hell no longer play his home games in Motown.Ive made Detroit my home. People ask me when Im moving back to Hawaii, Im not, Raiola said Tuesday. So, this is home for me now and Ive made a home here. Its very humbling to be in this position that I am.The Lions have told Raiola he isnt part of their plans for next season, meaning the veteran centre will be a free agent after playing the first 14 years of his career with Detroit. He says he thinks he can keep playing, but now hell have to find another team.Raiola set a franchise record with 203 starts, and hes one of three players to appear in at least 200 games for the Lions.In many ways, hes a throwback who couldve played in any era of the NFL, general manager Martin Mayhew said in a statement. He should take pride in the fact that he is one of the most durable players in this teams history, as proven by his longevity, and that he helped lead us to two playoff berths in the past four seasons. We wish him nothing but the very best in all his future endeavours.The Lions missed the playoffs in Raiolas first 10 seasons, including an 0-16 showing in 2008, but the Honolulu native was still a part of the starting lineup when Detroit reached the post-season two of the last four seasons. This season the Lions were a wild card, losing their playoff opener at Dallas.I think the last ones going to stand out. I mean, you can say the 2011 playoff year because it was so special and a lot of people made it about the guys that were left over from the 0-16 team, Raiola said. But I think theyre going to look back at this seeason and say that was a step for Lions coming to whats ahead of them. Air Max 270 Pas Cher Chine. I think good things are ahead. I know good things are ahead.Raiolas longevity — and his postgame candour — made him one of the most recognizable Detroit players, but he also exasperated fans on occasion. He was fined this past season for unnecessary roughness in a game at New England, and he was suspended for the regular-season finale at Green Bay after stepping on a Chicago player the previous weekend.I played with passion, he said. Yeah it was controversial at times, but when you live in the city, nobody knows that unless you live in the city. If youre one with the city you understand the passion I play with, what I brought every day. It was grouped together.The Lions drafted centre Travis Swanson in the third round last year, and he seems to be the most likely candidate to take over the position now.Hes going to do great, Raiola said. Hes a tough dude. Hes smart. I mean, youve got to be smart to be a centre. The Lions are in good hands with him and Im glad I can leave what I did and move on to Travis. Couldnt happen to a better guy.Raiola signed a one-year deal last off-season that kept him with the Lions for 2014, and this was arguably Detroits most successful season of his time with the franchise.I put a lot of my career on grouping myself with the city. You heard me say that over and over, Raiola said. One thing if I could apologize to people in the city is that Im sorry that we couldnt be more successful and ultimately win a championship while I was here. ... Some people can take it how they want, but the real fans know that I really mean that and that it really comes from my heart.___Online:AP NFL website: and ' ' '
