Nats Journal: Jordan Zimmermann grinds out seven innings

CHICAGO — Part of what makes Jordan Zimmermann a front-line starter is what he does when he does not have front-line starting stuff. He navigates and creates, not so much wily as stubborn. When he struggles with command, he attacks hitters with whatever pitches he can trust.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Nationals-Cubs discussion thread: Game 46

The Nationals will try to clinch a ninth-straight series win Tuesday night, led by starter Jordan Zimmermann, who will work on an extra day of rest. Zimmermann has thrown fewer than 100 pitches in seven of his nine starts this season, and has been particularly efficient lately. He’ll face Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks. Hendricks gets the usual Nationals lineup, including Bryce Harper, who is fine after running into the wall yesterday.Read full article >>

Happy birthday Jordan Zimmermann

Happy 29th birthday to the Washington Nationals Jordan Zimmermann, who threw a no-hitter on the final day of the 2014 season. Zimmermann on Sunday, September 28, 2014 no-hit the Miami Marlins for a 1-0 victory at Nationals Park. It was the first no-hitter for the Nationals franchise since its move from Montreal to D.C.

After shaky 1st, Zimmermann turns in top-notch start

Two batters into Wednesday night’s game, Jordan Zimmermann and the Nationals were down a run, a pair of Yankees having already connected for base hits. Four batters in, and the score was 2-0, as the crowd of 37,648 — at least, the portion of it that wasn’t still making its way into the park —…

Nats Journal: Nationals-Yankees discussion thread: Game 41

The Nationals could win their sixth straight series with a win over the Yankees on Wednesday. If the Mets lose and the Nationals win, it would also give them sole possession of first place in the NL East. Jordan Zimmermann (3-2, 3.66 ERA) has improved with each start. The Nationals have won the past four games started by Zimmermann. He faces off against right-hander Adam Warren (2-2, 4.50 ERA), who, of all the Nationals’ starters, has only faced Yunel Escobar before. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game below.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Tonight’s Nationals-Yankees lineups

The Nationals play for their fifth straight win Wednesday evening, and do so behind Jordan Zimmermann. Zimmermann is pitching one slot early because of the injury to Doug Fister, but on full rest because of off-days. He’ll face Yankees right-hander Adam Warren. Tyler Moore will play left field today in place of injured Jayson Werth. Otherwise, the lineup is the same as yesterday.  Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Why Jordan Zimmermann has thrown only one change-up this season

Over the past several seasons, Jordan Zimmermann has worked on improving his change-up, a fourth pitch to help neutralize left-handed batters.  Zimmermann often joked about his on-going project, because he was always “working” on it. The change-up finally became an effective weapon in 2013, even though he didn’t throw it much; the mere presence of it in his arsenal kept hitters honest.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Nationals-Padres discussion thread: Game 37

Despite Thursday’s rain-delayed loss, the Nationals have still won 12 of their past 16 games. While their offense has improved during that stretch, the starting pitching is still inconsistent. Stephen Strasburg’s struggles are well-known, Max Scherzer has been excellent, but Doug Fister, Jordan Zimmermann and Gio Gonzalez have been up and down. Zimmermann (2-2, 4.20 ERA) has been better of late; he has allowed only four earned runs over his past 13 innings. He takes on Odrisamer Despaigne (2-1, 5.13 ERA), who is better at Petco Park. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game...

Game 37 Preview: 05/15 Padres vs. Nationals

The Padres opened up their four-game set against the Nationals with a rain-delayed win last night featuring some fun offense and a solid performance from Tyson Ross. Tonight, weather permitting once again, they look to clinch at least a series split as Odrisamer Despaigne takes the mound against Jordan Zimmermann. This will be Despaigne's fourth start of the season, and eighth appearance overall. He struggled his last time out, giving up eight earned runs on ten hits to Arizona. This will be his first time facing the Nationals in his career. Zimmermann, on the other hand, has pitched...

Nats Journal: Nationals-Braves discussion thread: Game 32

With a win over the Braves Sunday, the Nationals would have their first series sweep of the season. They are over .500 for the first time all season, and have already clinched a fourth straight series win. Jordan Zimmermann pitches for Washington today against Braves left-hander Alex Wood, who held the Nationals down last season, but gave them no trouble in Atlanta in late April. He’ll face a lineup without Denard Span, who gets a day off today.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Former All-Met and George Mason Patriot Justin Bour homers against hometown team

On May 4, 2006, Marlins first baseman Justin Bour was wearing a Westfield Bulldogs jersey as his team beat the hated Centreville Wildcats, 6-0, in a Northern Virginia public school baseball showdown. Nine years later, Bour stood at first base on a D.C.-area baseball field again — this time at Nationals Park in a Miami Marlins jersey. As a senior at Westfield, he homered six times. Nearly a decade later, he homered off Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann in Miami’s 6-4 loss.Read full article >>
