They credited Zimmermann for getting things rolling.
“As a bullpen, you just want to keep the momentum on our side,” Clippard said. “Watching Jordan come out in the seventh and doing what he did, it really set the tone for me and Drew to kind of pick him up and pick our team up and keep us in the game. Fortunately, we were able to do that.”
Storen acknowledged that he has seen the Nationals’ bullpen take over a game earlier this season. But not quite like this, with a starter’s one-day relief cameo driving fans wild and silencing the St. Louis offense.
“To do that in the seventh inning the way Jordan did is pretty incredible, especially the situation that he’s not used to,” Storen said. “That’s another thing that makes playoff baseball so much fun.”
