Chase Hughes of CSNWashington.com has the story:
Werth walked past Gonzalez and said something that provoked Gio to turn around and start yelling back at the outfielder, causing pitching coach Steve McCatty to step in the pitcher’s way. Werth kept walking and appeared to take a seat in the corner of the dugout after the exchange.
Gonzalez was slow to cover first base on what could have been an inning-ending double play in the top of the first inning. Here’s a GIF of the confrontation between Gio and Jayson from Carmen Kiew on Twitter:
