Jordan Zimmermann, the Nationals’ most consistent starting pitcher in 2013, logged only 62 / 3 innings over his first two starts...

Daily DraftStreet Picks: April 10, 2014

Treading water on Wednesday, we’re back at it Thursday! And if you missed the early game today (like I almost did) DraftStreet...

New Nats reporter gets another Gatorade bath

So, a pretty nice effort by Jordan Zimmermann tonight against the Reds (9 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 91 pitches, 59 strikes), eh? Unlike Gio after his 1-hit gem last night, J-Zimm was able to dodge a Gatorade bath from Drew Storen and Ryan Mattheus during his postgame interview. The same couldn't be said for Julie Alexandria (now 2-for-2). (Screencaps via MASN/TV): ...
