Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann and Chicago pitcher Edwin Jackson have managed to keep the opposing team off the board. Both pitchers remain in the game as Zimmermann has given up no runs on five hits with three strikeouts and one walk while Jackson has gone the distance with Zimmermann but struck out eight. Former Nationals first baseman Adam Dunn is facing his old team for the first time since signing with the White Sox in the off season and the young Zimmermann has managed to make him go 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a fly out. Center fielder Roger Bernadina made an incredible catch to rob Dunn of a home run in the sixth.
The Nationals and White Sox remain scoreless going into the bottom of the seventh-inning.
