Jordan Zimmermann makes his first start of the season, hoping to continue the Nationals streak of 18 straight scoreless innings. The Nationals became the 13th team in the modern era (1900) to begin the season with back-to-back shutout victories. The Nationals will face Marlins left-hander Wade LeBlanc (2-5, 3.67 ERA last season). LeBlanc was in the Marlins bullpen when he faced the Nationals last season, allowing only four hits and no runs over five innings. The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game here.
