Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann moved to 18-8 Sunday, giving up just two earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven in seven innings as the Nationals beat the Phillies, 11-2.
Zimmermann has reeled off three straight wins to give himself a shot at reaching the 20-win plateau. He should get two more starts, with the first coming Friday against the Marlins. Zimmermann owns a 3.33 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 150:39 K:BB ratio as he looks for win no. 19.
