September 5, 2012 – Washington launched six homers, including a pair from OF Bryce Harper, during a 9-1 home win over the Chicago Cubs. The Nationals, who also homered six times the night prior, became the first team in MLB history to hit six or more homers in two straight home games. LHP Gio Gonzalez struck out nine and blanked Chicago for 7.0 innings to run his consecutive scoreless innings streak to 16.0. Gonzalez also matched RHP R.A. Dickey for the Major League lead with 18 wins.
