In Davey Johnson's infinite wisdom, he pulled Zimmermann in favor of Tyler Clippard.
Nope, he didn't strike out Allen Craig. He walked him. And to be honest, the third strike to Holliday was probably six inches outside, and Jim Joyce just missed it. Nevertheless, with Craig on first base,
Clippard struck out Yadier Molina.
The Cardinals struck out only twice in six innings against Ross Detwiler. But now the big boys are pitching, and they've struck out six times in two innings.
We're on to the bottom of the eighth, and it's still Cardinals 1, Nationals 1.
