Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann posts quality start, takes loss
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann posted a quality start on Tuesday, but was offered virtually no run support in the 4-1 loss to the Marlins. Zimmermann allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out two, and was lifted after throwing just 76 pitches (50 strikes).

Zimmermann (8-6) was given an early 1-0 lead in the second inning. But he allowed the tying run to cross in the fifth, and two more to score in the sixth. The Nationals' offense was shutdown by Jose Fernandez, en route to the tough-luck loss.

Zimmermann has been pitching well lately, posting a 2.62 ERA in his past seven starts.

Nationals RP Drew Storen moving to set-up role following trade
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

With the Nationals reportedly set to acquire right-hander Jonathan Papelbon from the Phillies, incumbent closer Drew Storen will be relegated to set-up duties, according to CBS Sports Baseball Inside Jon Heyman. 

Storen has had a terrific season so far as the Nationals' closer. He is 29-for-31 in save chances and has a 1.73 ERA this season. 

Still, the acquisition will give the Nationals a formidable back-end of the bullpen with a pair of stud closers at manager Matt Williams' disposal.
