Zimmermann ran his record to 8-2 on the year, allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings. He did not walk a batter, and struck out one in the 5-2 win over Philadelphia on Friday night.
And the beat goes on for the Nats mound leader. He needed just 92 pitches (66 for strikes) to log the seven innings, and while his strikeout totals are just fair, his 1.71 ERA has been a huge asset to his fantasy investors. He faces a rather tough assignment against the Orioles next time out, but he is obviously a must start in virtually all formats right now.
