Game 112 discussion thread: Nationals at Rockies

Last week, Davey Johnson said he might try to twist an arm or two and see if Jordan Zimmermann could pass the 160-inning limit the Nationals placed on him at the start of the season. Either it didn’t work, or Johnson gave up. “People up higher than me have a game plan,” Johnson said. “We’ll probably stick to it.”

Tonight, then, will bring one of Zimmermann’s final four starts of the season. Zimmermann has a 3.12 ERA with 98 strikeouts and 22 walks in 132 2/3 innings. It’s coming to an end soon, likely before August expires, but Zimmermann’s first full season after Tommy John surgery has been a success.

The Nationals will try to even their series in Colorado against Juan Nicasio, who’s 4-3 with a 3.95 ERA. As always, talk about the game right here.
