Marlins Vs. Nationals Preview: Jordan Zimmermann Gets The Start On The Mound For Washington

The Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins split their Friday double-header in the first two of their four-game weekend series at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

These two teams will be back at it once again on Saturday as the Nats try to increase their lead in the NL East standings.

Jordan Zimmermann will get the start on the mound for the Nationals. On Thursday, the right-hander was awarded National League Pitcher of the Month for July as he went 4-0 and had a staggering ERA of 0.97, allowing no more than one run in his six starts in the month.

Zimmermann is getting his first start of the month after overcoming inflammation in his right shoulder.
