Zimmermann was solid Saturday, tossing eight innings of seven-hit, two-run ball while fanning eight and not issuing a walk in a win over the visiting Giants.

He settled in nicely after serving up a two-run bomb to Hunter Pence in the top of the first. Zimmermann is now 9-5 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with 140 strikeouts in 159.2 innings (26 starts) this season and has been great for the Nats and fantasy owners alike in 2014.

Zimmermann did not record a decision Monday against the Diamondbacks as he pitched seven innings and allowed three runs, four hits and three walks to go along with two strikeouts.

Zimmermann has a sparkling 2.97 ERA and 1.15 WHIP for the season, but lack of run support and bullpen meltdowns have resulted in him coming away with only eight wins. He should continue to be a solid starting option down the stretch, but wins may continue to be hard to come by.

Zimmermann claimed his eighth win of the season Wednesday vs. the Mets, tossing 6.1 shutout innings and striking out four batters.

The right-hander's pinpoint control was his biggest ally in Wednesday's turn, as he needed only 87 pitches to retire 19 batters. He found himself in some trouble in the seventh inning by loading the bases, but reliever Drew Storen came on to snuff out a potential rally and preserve Zimmermann's ERA.

Zimmermann received no decision Thursday after holding the Mets to three runs on seven hits over 6.1 innings. He struck out five without a walk.

Zim came into the seventh inning with a 3-1 lead, but gave up a couple singles before being yanked, only to see the bullpen allow both inherited runners to score. It's been an up-and-down year for him, but he's tossed three straight quality starts. He'll look to make it four in a rematch with these Mets at Citi Field next week.
