    Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann drops game to Braves

    Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann went six innings in a loss to the Braves on Wednesday, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk. He struck out one batter.Wednesday's outing provided a rather forgettable end to Zimmermann's 2015 season. He pitched to contact and kept the ball on the ground, something he didn't do his last time out when he allowed three homers. The offense did him no favors, managing six hits against Williams Perez and the Braves' bullpen.While this season was a step back for Zimmermann after his brilliant 2014, he's still going to be a hot commodity on the open market this winter.

    Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann gets roughed up in loss to Phillies

    Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann was battered for six runs on six hits, walking two and striking out six while lasting just five innings in an 8-2 loss to the Phillies on Friday night. For Zimmermann (13-9, 3.68 ERA) the same spectres that have haunted him much of the year were again a factor in the poor outing as he allowed three more long balls. He has now allowed 23 home runs in 195 2/3 innings (he allowed just 13 all of last year) as he struggles with his command and leaves too many pitches out over the plate. Many expected Zimmermann to take a step forward this season, and at times he has displayed excellent stuff, but he hasn't consistently performed up to expectations.

    Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann shines in Saturday victory

    Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann performed poorly in his last two efforts in earning wins. He won again Saturday night against Miami, but this time around pitched beautifully. Zimmermann surrendered just one run on seven hits in seven innings to handcuff the Marlins. He walked one and fanned four. He would have hurled shutout ball if not for a mammoth 453-foot blast by Justin Bour in the seventh inning. Zimmerman improved his record to 11-8 with the win and lowered his ERA to 3.45.

    Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann posts quality start on Friday

    Jordan Zimmermann was masterful for the Nationals on Friday night. The right-hander limited the Rockies to one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out six and didn't walk anyone, throwing 74 of his 106 pitches for strikes. He would not factor in the decision however, as the bullpen coughed up a 4-1 lead, en route to the 5-4 loss to the Rockies. This was a good bounceback effort for Zimmermann, who had given up five earned runs in his previous start on Saturday. He has been rather inconsistent lately, going 1-2 with a 4.68 ERA over his past six outings. He has posted 18 quality starts in 23 outings this season.
