Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann shines in Saturday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2015) 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 SP Jordan Zimmermann picks up 10th win of year


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann wasn't on top of his game, but he did enough to pick up his 10th victory of the season in a win Sunday over the Brewers. 

Zimmermann went just 5 2/3 innings, laboring through 116 pitches. He gave up four runs on eight hits, but did strike out seven hitters. 

After a three-game losing streak, Zimmermann (10-8) has now won back-to-back starts. 


Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann snaps six-start winless streak


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann earned his first win since July 11, Tuesday against Colorado.

Zimmermann was 0-3 with three no-decisions in a six-start winless streak. He won, despite allowing six runs, more than in any start during the winless streak. Four of the runs were earned. He allowed nine hits, his most since June 12.

Zimmermann improved to 9-8 on the year.


Jordan Zimmermann the hard-luck loser for Nationals


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/13/2015) Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann had arguably his best start of the season Wednesday but still wound up taking the loss as the Dodgers eked out a 3-0 victory.

Zimmermann (8-8) has lost three straight decisions. 


Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann posts quality start on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/7/2015) 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.


Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann gives up five runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

With the loss, Zimmermann dropped to 8-7 this season with a 3.57 ERA.


Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann posts quality start, takes loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) 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.


Jordan Zimmermann solid in no-decision for Nationals


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/22/2015) Starter Jordan Zimmermann put together a solid outing, but received a no-decision as the Nationals didn't rally for a win until after he had exited the contest.

His ERA, which has gone up over his last four starts, now stands at 3.30 on the season.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The two runs came on a two-run home run by Adrian Gonzalez in the fourth to give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead.

The Nationals were able to re-take the lead in the bottom of the fifth. But, the game was suspended after a bank of lights went out on three separate occasions. The game will resume on Saturday at 2:05pm with the Nationals leading 3-2 in the top of the sixth inning.

Jordan Zimmermann's success tied to effectiveness of curveball


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann has been outstanding in his last two starts, tossing 15 2/3 scoreless innings. He has struck out nine and not issued a walk in that span.

"I had a good curveball the last two starts and felt like I could throw it when I wanted to, where I wanted to, any count," Zimmermann told reporters, per MASNsports.com. "Keep them off balance, just pound the zone, let those guys behind me play defense."

"The ability to throw a breaking ball behind in the count, early in the count," Williams said. "Had a good feel for his curveball tonight, especially against their lefties. The ball was down in the strike zone. If he can do that, then he can get a lot of swings and misses down on the breaking ball, which he got tonight."
