The Nationals will start an 10-game, 10-day road swing through Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. Manager Davey Johnson has said he’s not planning on making either Kurt Suzuki or Wilson Ramos a personal catcher for any starter. But Suzuki will catch Jordan Zimmermann for the seventh straight start tonight. Over those first six, Zimmermann went 5-1 with a 1.60 ERA. With Jayson Werth still on the DL, Steve Lombardozzi remains in left field.
