"They were out in the parking lot tailgating since 3 today so I'm sure they're all feeling pretty good right now."
(Jordan Zimmermann, via Washington Times, 7/29/2012)
Nationals 4, Brewers 1: Jordan Zimmermann wins in first big league start in his home state of Wisconsin, 3 hour drive from his home town of Auburndale (population ~700).
Apparently J-Zimm's people were tailgating before the game.
J-Zimm's line: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 K, 93 pitches-69 strikes.
Corey Brown, Tyler Moore, Zimmerman (not Zimmermann) homer.
Corey Brown's first big league hit, a home run, comes in a Gray's uni. Love the Homestead Grays throwbacks.
Bryce Harper scratched, due to lots of puking the last few days.
