Zimmermann Throws Nats' First No-Hitter on Last Day of Season

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jordan Zimmermann threw the first no-hitter by a Washington Nationals pitcher, the gem preserved by a diving catch in left field by defensive replacement Steven Souza Jr. for the final out in a 1-0 victory over the Miami Marlins in a regular-season finale Sunday.

Zimmermann (14-5) allowed only two baserunners, finishing with 10 strikeouts and one walk. He retired the first 14 batters before walking Justin Bourn on a full-count pitch with two outs in the fifth inning.

With two outs in the seventh, Garrett Jones reached first base on a strikeout with two outs in the seventh when he swung and missed on a wild pitch. Zimmermann leaned over and put his hands on his knees. But moments later, catcher Wilson Ramos picked off Jones at first.
