Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Gio Gonzalez tossed his first career shutout and the National League East-leading Washington Nationals posted a 10-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in the second installment of a four- game set.

Gonzalez (17-7), making his first appearance against the Cardinals, scattered five hits, walked three and struck out eight on his way to setting a new career high in wins.

The Nationals have scored at least eight runs in each of their last three games -- all wins.

St. Louis, meanwhile, has been outscored 32-1 during a four-game losing streak.

Adam Wainwright (13-11) surrendered six runs on nine hits and walked three in 2 2/3 innings for the playoff hopefuls. The right-hander had gone 6-0 with a 1.80 ERA in his last seven starts.
