WASHINGTON -- Jordan Zimmermann was terrific in his second complete game of the season and the Washington Nationals limited the Cincinnati Redsto one hit for the second straight game in a 1-0 victory on Friday night.

Zimmermann (4-1) struck out four and walked one while improving to 3-0 with a 1.36 ERA against Cincinnati. The right-hander needed only 91 pitches to record his third career complete game.

It was the first time the Reds managed just one hit in consecutive games since July 5-6, 1900, against Brooklyn, according to research by the Elias Sports Bureau that the team provided. The Houston Astros from Sept. 14-15, 2008, were the last team with such a streak.
