Ryan Zimmerman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Marlins.
Zimmerman touched up Marlins starter Tom Koehler for a solo homer to left-center in the second inning. The oft-injured first baseman has been scalding the ball of late, with a double, three homers and 11 RBI in his last six games. For the season, he's hitting a slightly-less-stellar .225/.294/.215 with 12 homers and 59 RBI over 311 at-bats.
Justin Bour went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.
Bour led off the seventh with a solo shot against Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann for his lone hit of the game. And the Marlins' lone run of the game. That, too. A rare 27-year-old rookie, Bour is slashing .250/.321/.434 with 13 homers and 42 RBI this season.
Jordan Zimmermann turned in a nice start in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Marlins, throwing seven innings of one-run ball.
Zimmermann scattered seven hits while striking out four and walking one. Justin Bour managed a solo homer against Zimmy in the seventh, but it was otherwise a trouble-free outing for the 29-year-old right-hander. Turning the corner to September, he'll look to improve on a 3.45 ERA and 1.22 WHIP while taking on the Braves.
Tom Koehler could not keep the ball in the park in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, allowing three home runs and five total runs over six innings.
Let's run through Koehler's homer-happy day. Ryan Zimmerman launched a solo shot in the second inning. Then, Clint Robinson and Ian Desmond went back-to-back in the sixth. Robinson's homer was a two-run shot. Homer happiness abounded. The 29-year-old right-hander's allowed an even 20 dingers in 150 2/3 innings. He'll take a 4.12 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a home start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber.
Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI in Saturday's win over the Rays.
Moustakas worked an RBI double in the fourth, another RBI double in the fifth and an RBI single in the ninth. Of his last seven games, three have been of the three-hit variety. He also has a pair of two-hit games in that stretch. The recent hot streak has boosted his overall triple-slash to .285/.352/.452 with 15 homers and 59 RBI.
