Washington's six-game winning streak was snapped Friday night in a 6-0 loss to the struggling Brewers, but the Nationals (59-40) send red-hot Jordan Zimmermann (7-6, 2.31 ERA) to the hill on Saturday against Milwaukee (45-54) looking to begin a new winning streak. The young righthander is 4-0 with a 0.95 ERA in six starts since a loss on June 22.
The Brewers will send veteran lefty Randy Wolf (3-6, 5.46 ERA) to the mound to face Davey Johnson's club. Wolf is 1-0 with a 3.07 ERA in his last three starts, and is 9-5 with a 4.54 ERA in 21 career starts against the Nationals franchise.
