Zimmermann (6-5), who had Tommy John surgery in August 2009, called the Nationals' training staff out after he threw a pitch to Cameron Rupp with one out in the fourth. He showed no obvious discomfort, but left the mound after a short discussion with the training staff and Williams. He doesn't feel the problem is related to his shoulder or elbow.
The Phillies dominated the NL East from 2007-11, winning five division titles, two pennants and one World Series. That's a distant memory now. These Phillies are closer to getting the No. 1 draft pick in next year's amateur draft than getting back to the postseason.
The Nationals have won five of six. They've outscored opponents 38-12 in those half-dozen games, including 19-6 in each of the three-game series against the Texas Rangers and the Phillies.
Ryan Howard is starting to look like a former MVP.
When David Buchanan walked into the manager's office after a rough outing in the minors, he didn't expect to leave a major leaguer. Buchanan sure pitched like he belonged in his debut.
A.J. Ellis had plenty of room to catch Chase Utley's foul pop and didn't squeeze it into his catcher's mitt.
Jimmy Rollins, Wil Nieves and the Phillies picked up Sunday right where they left off the night before.
The short-handed Reds could have used some power bats on Sunday.
David Wright sat alone on the bench, staring out at the field for a while after the latest maddening loss for his slumping Mets.
The old guard took care of this one for the Phillies - with both their bats and their brains.
Washington Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark chalked up his latest outing as a learning experience for a young pitcher.
Roberto Hernandez (2-1) struck out three and walked three. His start was moved up two days because Cole Hamels had the flu, and he retired 14 of 15 batters in the middle innings.
Gio Gonzalez pitched well enough for a victory. Unfortunately for the Nationals left-hander, his Phillies counterpart was a tad better.
A.J. Burnett isn't much for numbers except when it comes to strikeouts.
Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard led the way out of the Philadelphia Phillies' offensive slump.
Rollins said recently he's open to waiving his no-trade clause if the team decides to "blow it up" come the trade deadline.
"It's getting out of control now," Rollins said. "We've got a chance to go out there and change that tomorrow. If not, then that's a decision they're going to make either way. But we'd like to put a streak together going the other direction. Be up in that left column, and find a way to win some games."
