Game 145: Zim Long HR Sets Victorious Tone
Show Notes

The Nats beat the Marlins 8-2 on an evening where the offense had fourteen hits. Al & Mark praise Ryan Zimmerman's tape measure opposite field HR (442 feet) that went into the 2nd deck.  This picks up on our previous conversation about the potential for him to return for next season.  Hear what Zimmerman said when asked about his future after the game.

(13:46) Juan Soto reached base four more times on Tuesday and has lifted his average to .313. Mark explains how all the walks he's drawn is helping him in pursuit of Trea Turner for the NL batting crown..

(17:56) Al wonders if it's time to call the race between Victor Robles and Lane Thomas for Opening Day leadoff hitter/ CFer.  Thomas had another good game as he had two more hits, meanwhile Robles is hitting .292 for AAA Rochester.

(31:10) Erick Fedde struck out eight and allowed only one run in five frames.  Fedde pitched well all three times he faced Miami this season.
