Latest Jordan Zimmermann Items
Most of Tuesday at Nationals Park was about Bryce Harper. Cameras followed his every move, crowding around his locker even when he was nowhere to be found. Teammates marveled at the sudden surge in media infiltrating their clubhouse as the Washington Nationals returned home, carrying with them their 19-year-old phenom.
Ryan Zimmerman sat and watched from the dugout Wednesday, helpless to his team for the time being with inflammation in his right AC joint. Michael Morse was thousands of miles away, two weeks into a six-week rest period for his torn right lat muscle.
It might be hard, but let's not make World Series reservations just yet for the 12-4 Washington Nationals.
The Washington Nationals got their first series sweep of the season Sunday when rain washed away their afternoon finale with the Miami Marlins. Having won the first two games of the series, the Nationals (12-4) wrapped up an 8-2 homestand with their fifth straight series victory.

As Jayson Werth stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 13th on Friday the 13th, the clock had just inched past 11 p.m. He looked out at bases filled with his teammates. Danny Espinosa on third via a broken-bat single. Ryan Zimmerman on second due to a five-pitch walk. Adam LaRoche on first because of a second five-pitch walk.
Jeff Samardzija dominated into the ninth inning, outpitching Jordan Zimmermann, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 Sunday for their first win of the Theo Epstein era.
