Winless in his last 8 with the Washington Nationals 1-7 over the same stretch, Jordan Zimmermann's looking for his first W since April 26th. The Nationals' 23-year-old right-hander has walked 5 and K'd 28 in his last four outings, allowing just 3 ER in his last 11.0 IP after getting hit for 5 ER in 5.0 innings in his last May start...Brian Tallet got hammered by the Marlins last time out, surrendering 8 ER on 10 hits in 3.1 IP. Before that Tallet was 2-0 in his previous three starts including 7.0 scoreless the AL's hard-hitting Rangers.

Ronnie Belliard - 1 for 1.

Adam Dunn - 1 for 1, 1 2B.

Cristian Guzman - 1 for 3, 1 2B.

Corey Patterson - 0 for 5, 2 K's.
