The second of the Nationals right-handed starters, Jordan Zimmermann, takes a crack at the St. Louis Cardinals and a chance to put Washington on the verge of clinching a division title. Zimmermann (12-8, 2.90 ERA) is opposed by right-hander Kyle Lohse (16-3, 2.77 ERA), who has the highest winning percentage in the majors. The Nationals can claim the division with a win and an Atlanta Braves loss. The New York Mets are in Atlanta, playing at 7:10 p.m. As always, talk about the game here.
