But what will not show up in the box score is the swing that gave the Nationals a 4-0 lead was anything but normal. Zimmerman managed to hit the ball twice with one swing.

When Ryan Zimmerman is Miguel Cabrera

Look at this nonsense: I should probably explain this nonsense: That’s Ryan Zimmerman. He’s swinging at a pitch from Jacob deGrom. As you can tell, that’s Zimmerman making contact with a pitch from Jacob deGrom. And that contact resulted in a dinger. It put the Nats up in the first inning. Washington wouldn’t score again. They’d win anyway. It can […]
