Game 56 WPA: The Return of the (other) Zim. Nats 7, FF 0

AND he threw 9 innings scoreless! Wait, is there another Zimmerman? Zimmermann? Whatever. - Greg Fiume

With both Zimmerman(n) brothers finally on the field together, the Nats are unstoppable!

  • He was already here: Jordan Zimmermann (+26.7%) throws 8 scoreless innings with 4 Ks and 1 walk.
  • Like he never left: Ryan Zimmerman (+7.4%) gives his cousin some support two doubles, one for an RBI in the 4th to put the Nats up by four (+4.8%).
  • Wolf-man with a mission: Jayson Werth (+15.0%) is only 1-4, but his 3rd-inning hit is a two-run, ground-rule double that would give the Nats all the runs they needed to win (+17.3%).
  • Making their cases: Denard Span (+5.9%) is 3-5, and Danny Espinosa (+4.3%) is 2-4.
