Former Express Pitcher Makes MLB Postseason Debut

Posted:

St. Louis (WQOW) -- Former Eau Claire Express pitcher Jordan Zimmermann makes his MLB postseason debut Monday, but takes the loss as the Cardinals defeat the Nationals.

Zimmermann only lasts three innings, allowing five earned runs on seven hits.

-------------------------------------------------------------

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Carlos Beltran hit the last two of St. Louis' four homers and the Cardinals chased an ineffective Jordan Zimmermann early in a 12-4 rout of the Washington Nationals on Monday night that tied their NL division series at one game apiece

Allen Craig and Daniel Descalso also went deep to help the Cardinals build a big lead and compensate for a two-inning start from Jaime Garcia. Craig hit his fifth career postseason homer and scored three times.

Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche hit consecutive homers in the fifth inning for the Nationals, who won't pitch All-Star ace Stephen Strasburg -- shut down for the year early last month.
