ZIMMERMANN POCKETS 50TH WIN AS THE NATIONALS BLANK THE PHILLIES
Jordan Zimmermann scattered 5 singles, struck out 8 and eventually recorded his 50th career (most in Nationals history) win with 7.0 scoreless innings as the Nation-als recorded their 12th shutout of the season with Sat. night’s 11-0 home victory over the Phillies…every Nationals starter recorded a hit, and each position player registered at least one RBI...Anthony Rendon led Washington’s 14-hit attack with 3 hits, 2 of which went for extra bases, and a game-high 4 RBI...his 2nd-inning 3-run blast snapped the Nationals’ team-record 9-game/90-inning home run drought.
ABSOLUTE ZERO
In Sat.’s 11-0 win, Jordan Zimmermann (7.0 scoreless) combined with Jerry Blevins and Blake Treinen (1.0 scoreless inning each) on Washington’s 12th shutout...those 12 shutouts are one shy of the Nationals (2005 - pres.) single-season team mark of 13, which was set during the 2012 NL East Championship campaign.
7.0 HEAVEN
Since the beginning of July, Steve McCatty’s starting pitchers have lasted 7.0+ innings in 17 of 26 contests (65.4%)...not surprisingly, Washington’s bullpen has worked the 2nd-fewest innings (66.1) in MLB dating to July 1 (DET, 62.2).
TOP HEAVY
Winners of 18 of 29, Washington (59-49, .546) leads the NL East by 2.5 games...in the race for the NL’s top record, 7 clubs are within 5.0 games of the Dodgers (63-48, .568): MIL (-2.0), Washington (-2.5), SFG (-3.5), PIT (-3.5), STL (-4.0), ATL (-5.0).
DAYS OF RESIDENCY
Utilizing win percentage, the Nationals have spent 54 days in first place, including 43 days with sole possession of the NL East’s top spot, this season (per Elias Sports).
RIVALRIES RENEWED
The Nationals (21-18, .538 against NL East in 2014) are in the midst of a heavy stretch of intradivision contests, as 10 of their next 11 games will come against a cross-sec-tion of NL East rivals (one more against the Phillies, 3 against the Braves, 6 against the Mets)...the lone exception: a Mon., Aug. 4 one-off against the Orioles (game was rescheduled due to a July 8 washout in DC).37 of Washington’s final 54 games this season will be played against NL East foes.
PATENT THAT LEATHER
Matt Williams’ Nationals have played errorless baseball in 39 of 49 games (80%) dating to June 7...in that 8-week span, the Nationals pace MLB with a .993 fielding percentage...the Mariners (.991) and Orioles (.990) rank 2nd and 3rd, respectively.The Nationals’ error totals by month: Mar./Apr. (26), May (20), June (8), July (10).
KEEPING SCORE ON THE SEASON
The Nationals lead the NL (3rd in MLB) run differential at +76 (454 for, 378 against)...MLB’s top 5: OAK (+166), LAA (+85), Washington (+76), LAD (+57), SEA (+55).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 50-6 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 9-43 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
SERIES BUSINESS
Dating to May 30, Washington is 12-3-2 (win-loss-tie) in series play, and 33-21 (.611) overall...3 of the 12 series wins were sweeps (3-0 vs. PHI, 2-0 vs. HOU, 3-0 vs. COL)...the Nationals’ home-and-home set with BAL is considered one series for this note.
STOP THIEF!
Nationals catchers pace MLB having gunned down 23 of 62 (37.1%) would-be bas-estealers this year (pitcher caught stealings excluded)...the Cardinals (19 of 55, 36.5%) currently rank a close 2nd behind Washington...in ‘13, the Nationals ranked 29th throwing out 14 percent (15 of 110) of would-be basestealers.
ATTENTION SPAN
Denard Span has reached base safely via hit or walk in 28 straight games dating to June 28, going 40-for-109 (.367) with 4 doubles, 5 RBI, 18 walks, 22 runs scored and 8 stolen bases without being caught...his 28-game on-base percentage: .453.Span’ 28-game run is currently the longest such streak in MLB, the 10th-longest in MLB this year and tied for the 5th-longest in Nationals history:
