MILWAUKEE -- Gio Gonzalez combined with three relievers to hold Milwaukee's potent lineup to three hits, and Adam LaRoche hit a three-run homer to help the Washington Nationals beat the Brewers 3-0 on Monday night.

Gonzalez (4-4) walked four and struck out five in six innings. It was the left-hander's second start following a monthlong stint on the disabled list for left shoulder inflammation.

He outdueled Matt Garza (4-5), who struck out seven in seven innings but allowed LaRoche's homer to straightaway center in the third.

Tyler Clippard struck out the side in the ninth for his first save.

Brewers cleanup hitter Carlos Gomez went 0 for 4, snapping a 35-game streak of reaching base and a career-best 18-game hitting streak.
