"We’re not Ryan Zimmerman. We’ve been playing for a while, and we know how to win."

Nationals 5, Giants 2: Pitching, pitching, pitching as usual. And some timely hitting.
Who needs Ryan Zimmerman? The Nats do. But just don't ask Alex Cora the question.
Jordan Zimmermann, FTW: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 107 pitches. Drew Storen earns save #5; but just don't call him the closer yet.
