Jordan Zimmermann held the Braves scoreless over eight innings on Wednesday, but the Nationals needed 11 innings to pull out a win.

He continues to lower his ERA following a mediocre start to the season.

The right-hander allowed eight hits and a walk while striking out eight in the effort. Zimmermann was coming off of a couple of rough outings, so his performance Wednesday is encouraging. He owns a 3.75 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 60/19 K/BB ratio over 84 innings. He'll match up against the Braves at home next week.

Jordan Zimmerman struggled in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, allowing four runs on 10 hits over five innings.

It happens to the best of 'em sometimes. On the whole, the numbers are great. Zimmerman's pitching to a 3.18 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 48/17 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings. He'll try to move past this rockier outing when he faces the Brewers next time he takes the ball.

Jordan Zimmermann spun eight scoreless innings in a 2-0 win over the Blue Jays in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Otherwise, he cruised, scattering six hits to go with one walk and four strikeouts. Zimmermann has allowed just six runs combined over his last six starts, lowering his ERA from 4.88 to 2.88 in the process. He lines up for a start against the Cubs this weekend.

Jordan Zimmermann delivered his best outing of the young season in a no-decision, holding the Marlins to two runs (one earned) in seven innings of work in Monday's win.

Marcell Ozuna singled in a run in the first inning, providing the Marlins their only run until the seventh, when Justin Bour hit a solo home run. Zimmermann only allowed six hits in total while walking none and striking out four. He got off to a slow start, but the Nationals hope Monday's outing is a sign he's turned the page. He has a 4.15 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a 22/6 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings. Zimmermann toes the rubber against the Braves next.
May 4 - 10:01 PM

Jordan Zimmermann got the win on Wednesday against the Braves, yielding four runs (three earned) in seven innings.

Zimmermann also helped his own cause, knocking in three runs with a single to left-center in the fourth inning to give the Nationals a 5-3 lead at the time. On the pitching end of things, the right-hander gave up eight hits and a walk while striking out seven. A.J. Pierzynski knocked in two runs in the first inning with a single but Zimmermann was otherwise stingy. He's now 2-2 with a 4.88 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and an 18/6 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings. He'll look to lower his ERA when he faces the Marlins at home in his next start.
Apr 29 - 9:58 PM

Jordan Zimmerman held the Marlins to two runs over six innings in Friday's loss.

Zimmerman had allowed nine earned runs over his last 8 2/3 innings, but he settled things down against the Marlins. Over his six innings on Friday, he scattered six hits, struck out four and did not walk a batter. The lone cloud on this outing came when he allowed RBI singles to Mat Latos and Dee Gordon in the fifth inning. Zimmerman would not factor into the decision in the 3-2 loss. He'll look to keep that 5.25 ERA moving downward when he takes to the road against the Braves in his next start.
Apr 24 - 9:59 PM

Jordan Zimmermann gave up four runs (two earned) over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

Zimmermann didn't get any help from his defense, namely from Ian Desmond, but he wasn't particularly sharp either. He gave up four hits and four walks while striking out three batters. It's worth noting that he didn't walk more than three batters in any of his 32 starts last season. After back-to-back uncharacteristic outings, he'll look to bounce back against the Marlins next week.
Apr 18 - 4:46 PM

Jordan Zimmermann had a rare clunker Monday, getting blasted for eight runs -- seven earned -- over just 2 1/3 frames in a loss to the Red Sox.

Usually possessing pinpoint command, Zimmermann had zero of it in this one from the get-go, allowing nine hits, walking one and hitting a pair of batters without recording a strikeout. The right-hander looked sharp in his first outing of the season, so we'll just have to chalk this one up to a "one of those days" starts. He'll have a good chance to rebound this weekend versus the Phillies.
