Two Zimmerman(n)s In Game 1, None In Game 2 For Nationals

Ryan Zimmerman is only playing in one game for the Nats today.

It's Ernie Banks day in Washington D.C. as the Dodgers take on the Nationals in a doubleheader at Nationals Park.

Aaron Harang and Jordan Zimmermann, the planned starters on Tuesday night, will start the opening game, with Josh Beckett and John Lannan getting the call in Game 2.

Ryan Zimmerman will only play just the first game for the Nationals, as he is getting a cortisone shot in his right shoulder today, per Bill Ladson of MLB.com.
