Jordan Zimmermann just pitched a one-hitter for the Washington Nationals, perhaps the best start by a D.C. pitcher since the August 8, 1931 no-hitter by Bobby Burke of the Washington Senators. Zimmermann allowed one hit, one walk and an error. Burke walked five Boston Red Sox that day, so Zimmermann’s may have actually been a [...]

The Washington Nationals concluded a six-game intradivisional road trip 3-3.

The Washington Nationals completed their sweep of the Miami Marlins by doing something they had not done all season — give up a run.

Last night goes down as one of the great nights in the Washington Nationals history. Following 9 innings of 1 run (unearned) pitching by Ross Detwiler, Jordan Zimmermann, Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen, Jayson Werth led off the top of the 9th inning.

I don’t know if I’d go far enough to say they made history, but the destroyed the Chicago Cubs, 9-2. The score was not the big story though, the benches and bullpens emptied twice with [...]
