We got a winna!

Oh yeah.

Jordan Zimmermann snatched his first major league win in his first major league start, giving the Washington Nationals their first win in a good, long while. The victory came against the Atlanta Braves and ever-reliable Derek Lowe. The final line for the Man(n) looked like: 6 IP, 6H, 2 ER, BB, 3 SO. In the fourth inning, Brave’s outfielder Matt Diaz took him deep for a two-run shot. It was his only real blemish as he pounded the strike zone all night and made his pitches.

Blatantly stolen from MLB. Thank you MLB.com!

I’d look for him to win a few more, but with the sometimes anemic National’s offense, wins will be hard to come by. They’ll probably still work him like a dog though and he’ll have some great performances along the way. 2010 will be the true test.
