Phillies Vs. Nationals Score: Jordan Zimmermann Has A Perfect Game Through Five Innings

All eyes at Nationals Park are on Washington Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann and Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee while the rest of the players have become mere pawns in a smoking pitcher’s duel that have the two teams tied 0-0 going into the sixth. Zimmerman, thus far, has a perfect game through five innings.

The only hits of the night so far has been from Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa. In the third-inning Espinosa lead off double. He was able to get to third with one out, but the Nationals were unable to bring him in cleanly as Zimmermann hit into a fielders choice and Espinosa was out at home. On the next at-bat, Ian Desmond struck out to end the inning and the only scoring chance for either team thus far. Later Wilson Ramos singled in the fifth.

This all means that Zimmermann has a perfect game through five-innings. To the superstitious we apologize, but it has to be said. Jordan Zimmerman has been perfect through five-innings, not Cliff Lee.
