Game 37 discussion thread: Nationals at Braves

It’s a coincidental anniversary of sorts for two Nationals players. On this date in 2004, Alex Cora hit a home run for the Dodgers after an 18-pitch at-bat. “It was unbelievable,” said Manager Jim Riggleman, the Dodgers’ bench coach at the time. Also on this date, Jayson Werth stole second, third and home against the Dodgers during one trip around the bases.

Tonight, Jordan Zimmermann will try to continue the strike-throwing rampage he exhibited in his last start, when he threw 19 in a row at one point. Derek Lowe carried a no-hitter deep into his outing, against the Phillies, and he also shut the Nats out for six innings opening day.

As always, talk about the game right here. And follow the action here:
