Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 21, 2013
Last night, June 20, 2013, the Washington Nationals defeated the Colorado Rockies 5-1. Pitcher Jordan Zimmermann was on fire, as he planned on throwing strikes, and that’s just what he did. For the most part, the Rockies players could not touch the ball. In eight innings against the number two offense in the National League, Zimmermann struck out nine, walked one, and allowed only six hits. Furthermore, the Rockies' only run came in the eighth off a single, and was unearned. Zimmermann is 10-3 this year and is the third Major League starter to reach ten wins. He only tries to throw strikes, and it is apparent in the numbers, as he has thrown 85 so far this season. As for the players, they helped out Zimmermann to get that win. The Nationals racked up 11 hits on the night, and four players had a multi-hit game. Span and Lombardozzi had doubles while LaRoche went 3-for-4 with a triple. It was LaRoche’s first three hit game of the season. But the real magic came from the pitching last night. All of Zimmermann’s 15 pitches in the first inning were strikes, and in the second and third innings he only threw five balls. In one amazing stretch, the pitcher set down 16 straight Rockies batters. Zimmermann has been getting better with each passing game. He has gone from an average pitcher to being one of the most dominant in the MLB. He said about last night that we was throwing strikes in situations he normally would not have. The pitcher has great confidence now, and the win last night has brought the Nationals back up to .500.
