Interleague Preview from The Sports Network



Wednesday, April 10th (All times eastern)

Chicago White Sox (4-3) at Washington Nationals (5-2), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Chicago - Gavin Floyd (0-1, 3.00) Washington - Jordan Zimmerman (1-0, 1.50)

(Sports Network) - Jordan Zimmerman goes after his second win in as many starts on Wednesday when the Washington Nationals continue a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox at Nationals Park.

Zimmerman was terrific against the Miami Marlins on Thursday, holding them to a run and eight hits over six innings. He also walked two and struck out a batter in the win.

"I felt good. It's the best I've felt in a long time," Zimmermann said. "It's one of those days where I had to battle and make the pitches when I needed a ground ball."

Zimmerman did not get a decision in his only other start versus the White Sox, despite pitching seven scoreless innings.

Chicago will counter with righty Gavin Floyd, who is searching for his first win of the year. Floyd absorbed the loss to Kansas City on Thursday, as he allowed three runs (2 earned) and four hits in six innings.

"Gavin pitched well enough to get a win today," manager Robin Ventura said.

Floyd has faced the Nationals five times (3 starts) and is 1-1 with a 3.67 ERA.

Washington drew first blood in this series on Tuesday, as Adam LaRoche clubbed a pair of homers and drove in three runs, while Jayson Werth added a homer and three RBI to lead the Nationals to an 8-7 win. Ian Desmond added a solo homer and Ryan Zimmerman drove in a run and scored once for Washington, which has won two of their last three.

Gio Gonzalez allowed just one run on four hits while striking out seven over five frames. Craig Stammen (2-0), though, earned the win despite allowing one run on three hits in the sixth. Rafael Soriano gave up a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth, but was able to retire the final batter to pick up his third save of the season.

"It was good, it was a big win. We had some tough ones in Cincinnati, so to bounce back here at home and get one was nice," LaRoche said.

Paul Konerko went 1-for-2 with a homer and four RBI for the White Sox, who had won back-to-back games entering the contest. Alex Rios added a two-run homer and Alejandro De Aza went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and scored twice.

Jake Peavy (1-1) allowed six runs on nine hits while striking out seven over 5 1/3 innings for Chicago.

"Peavy looked good, but going through their lineup, they're tough," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "It takes a lot out of you to go through that. They had a lot of good at bats. It was just one of those things, they just finally got after him."

The Nationals last faced the White Sox during the 2011 season, winning two of three contests at U.S. Cellular Field.
