In his final start of the regular season, Jordan Zimmermann was brilliant. However, he wasn’t the only member of the Washington Nationals who impressed on the afternoon.
With two outs in the top of the ninth, Christian Yelich hit a pitch by Zimmermann to the gap in left-center that looked like a sure extra-base hit. Playing in only his fourth game in left field for Washington, Steven Souza tracked down the ball and left his feet to make an incredible diving catch to record the final out of the game and give Jordan Zimmermann the first no-hitter in Nationals history.
Zimmermann struck out 10 and walked one on the way to the victory. He needed just 104 pitches to retire the 28 batters he faced.
What a way to end a game. What a way to end a regular season for the team whose 96 wins are most in the National League. Bryce Harper agrees.
Wow!! The most epic way to end the regular season..Atta boy JZ! Officially in the history books! #NO-NO
