Zimmermann looks to keep rolling in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE - Jordan Zimmermann starts at Miller Park tonight with a chance to extend a run of tremendous starts.

The Nationals right-hander has allowed three runs in 32 innings for a miniscule 0.84 ERA over his last four starts. He has struck out 27 and walked three while holding opponents to a .153 average and .383 OPS. Despite that, he's just 2-2 in those four starts.

Zimmermann, an Auburndale, Wisc., native, matches up with perhaps the Brewers' hottest starter, Yovani Gallardo. The Milwaukee right-hander has pitched to a 0.86 ERA over his last three starts, surrendering just two runs in 21 innings, striking out 20 and walking three.
