One day after throwing the first no-hitter in Nationals history, Jordan Zimmermann has been named the NL Player of the Week.
After winning their division and locking up the No. 1 seed in the NL, the Washington Nationals now have no choice but to wait four whole days before Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday.
Before Jordan Zimmermann secured the first no-hitter in Nats history and his teammates rushed the field, Sunday afternoon was already a special day for the Washington Nationals.
Besides Jordan Zimmermann himself, nobody had a better view of the best performance by a starting pitcher in Nationals history than catcher Wilson Ramos.
Nationals manager Matt Williams laid out a plan for his starting rotation before the final week of the regular season, saying he would limit their outings based on pitch count and innings.
