So Jordan Zimmermann threw a complete game gem and got more than enough run support Friday night for his 19th win of the season: 9 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 9 K. For the effort, Zimmermann was on the receiving end of a shaving cream pie to the face AND a Gatorade bath during his postgame interview. Wait, did Tyler Clippard almost drop the Gatorade bucket?
Unfortunately, the Pirates blew a late lead to the Reds shortly thereafter, and the Nats didn't make up any ground in the Wild Card chase. Still 5 back. Gonna take a miracle now.
