• Nats' Skipper Jim Riggleman On Saturday's Win:
Jim Riggleman: "It was very special. We were down the whole day and kept the game in range. Stras was really battling it out there, and it's really a credit to him to kind of fight himself a little bit with some pitches and keep us in the game...[Strasburg] gave up one run in two separate innings, and that's huge. When you're fighting yourself a little bit and you're able to just put a one up there that's pretty good. So, the win was real special because it was against a very good ballclub, their closer, who's outstanding and just being down, and as much as we've struggled lately, to keep figthing, I'm very proud of our ball players."
"Strasburg has just a handful of innings, and the sample of his work is small. But so far, the difference between what he has accomplished is enormous when he gets ahead in the count with that first pitch."
"Zimmermann, 24, threw two innings for the P-Nats. He allowed two base hits, but did not walk a batter. He struck out two in the appearance. He threw a total of 25 pitches, 16 for strikes."
