Jordan Zimmermann throws Nationals' first ever no-hitter


Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann threw  a no-hitter Sunday for the first time in franchise history since the team moved from Montreal to Washington.

Stephen Souza came in as a defensive replacement in the top of the ninth inning and recorded the game's final out on a diving catch in left field. 

The franchise's last no-hitter was Dennis Martinez's perfect game on July 28, 1991. The Montreal Expos moved to Washington and became the Nationals in 2005.
