Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, fresh off Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Phillies, will not pitch in the All-Star Game due to a lingering neck injury, Washington manager Davey Johnson said Friday. Zimmermann had an X-ray and MRI on Friday, but Johnson does not believe his ace will need to go on the disabled list. "They feel it's soft tissue that's the problem. It's something with rest that he could probably get by," Johnson said Still, the righthander who is 12-4 with a 2.58 ERA in 19 starts and was named to his first all-star team, is planning to make the trip to New York.

JOHN AXFORD looked to his left and the St. Louis-Houston game was on one clubhouse television. He looked to another TV on his right and saw the Dodgers playing Washington. The Brewers closer smiled. "We're not scoreboard watching," Axford said. "Not at all. " Axford was fibbing, of course. Marco Estrada pitched seven scoreless innings and rookie shortstop Jean Segura hit a double and triple Wednesday night as the surging Brewers stayed in contention for a postseason berth with a 3-1 road victory over the fading Pittsburgh Pirates.

Despite an inept start to the season, the Washington Nationals have a couple of reasons to get excited in Jordan Zimmermann and Jesus Flores. Zimmermann showed off the impressive combination of sharp stuff and steady composure that makes him one of baseball's top prospects, and Flores led the offensive charge yesterday as Washington routed the New York Mets, 8-1, for its first road victory of the year. "It feels great. We know we're better than our record shows," manager Manny Acta said.

This is a post by David Murphy on High Cheese, the Daily News' Phillies blog, available at www.philly.com/highcheese . FORGET FOR A second about how transparent the Nationals' attempts at legitimizing their existence have been: It's still fun to have something to talk about, isn't it? While conventional wisdom suggests that a perceived underdog should do everything in its power to maintain its status, Washington realizes that its biggest opponent is still fan apathy.

ROOKIES IN THE postseason, the Washington Nationals played like poised veterans. The Nationals escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, Tyler Moore blooped a two-out, two-run single in the eighth and Washington beat the defending World Series champion Cardinals, 3-2, Sunday in an NL Division Series opener in St. Louis. The Nationals have just four players with postseason experience. But they have the lead in the best-of-five series. "Not many people have probably watched too many Nationals games, but we have a great starting rotation and a great bullpen," said Ian Desmond, who singled for his third hit in the go-ahead rally.

It was less than a week ago that the Phillies hit their low point of the season, but since then they have dramatically changed their fortunes. With Jimmy Rollins contributing the ninth multi-home run game of his career and A.J. Burnett allowing two runs in 72/3 innings, the Phillies defeated the Washington Nationals, 6-2, on Friday night before 30,094 at Citizens Bank Park. It was the Phillies' fifth consecutive win, tying their season-best streak. "This is the reason I came here, for this kind of baseball," Burnett said.

Whether it was nerves, rust or age - or a combination of the three - John Smoltz had a rough debut inning for the Boston Red Sox. The 42-year-old righthander allowed four of the first five batters to score before settling down in his first major league game in more than a year. The host Washington Nationals hit him hard by pulling pitches high in the strike zone the first time through the lineup, scoring all the runs they would need in last night's, 9-3, Interleague win. Smoltz, who spent all of his previous 20 seasons with the Atlanta Braves, needed 34 pitches to get through the four-run first.

THERE'S AN interesting dynamic inside the Phillies organization right now. The team is nine games under .500, with the fourth-worst run differential in the National League. For weeks now, the questions about the team's long-term direction have seemed more pressing than those involving the short term. Yet after last night's 6-2 dispatching of the Nationals, the Phillies are winners of five straight, tied for their longest streak of the season, and playing like the team they envisioned themselves to be at the start of the season.

Cliff Lee had a problem throwing strikes Wednesday night. Not in the conventional sense. In fact, Lee's strike-ball ratio of 64-12 in a seven-inning outing against the Washington Nationals was off-the-charts good. But if you examine the four strikes the Nationals hit for back-to-back home runs in back-to-back innings during a 5-1 victory over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, then you can begin a debate about when a ball might be better than a strike. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel was not willing to enter that debate.

COMING OFF one of his worst outings of the season, Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann surrendered a pair of first-inning hits against Colorado last night. That only gave the Rockies false hopes. Zimmermann pitched eight innings to win his 10th game, Adam LaRoche had three hits including a two-run triple and the Nationals spoiled Roy Oswalt's return to the majors with a 5-1 win over the Colorado. Ian Desmond homered for the second straight game and Denard Span and Steve Lombardozzi added a double and a single apiece for Washington, which began a stretch in which it will play 14 of its next 17 games at home.

WASHINGTON - For their first seven years, filled with on-field losses and off-field gaffes, the Washington Nationals merely existed, barely mattered. That's why so much that happened in 2012 felt new and significant to them. All the regular-season wins - a best-in-baseball 98 - and the NL East title, the postseason highs and lows, the intense attention to the decision to shut down Stephen Strasburg in September. And when it ended, in as difficult-to-digest a way as possible, the soft voices in the quiet Nationals clubhouse kept repeating the same word in the wee hours of Saturday, saying they would "learn" from what happened.

WASHINGTON - Stephen Strasburg joined his teammates for an off-day workout at Nationals Park on Tuesday, red socks pulled nearly up to his knees while tossing baseballs in the outfield a day before the first postseason game in the nation's capital in 79 years. That's about the extent of activity these days for Strasburg as the Washington Nationals carry on without their acknowledged ace, shut down a month ago. The NL East champions' opponent, the St. Louis Cardinals, are very much counting on their returning ace, Chris Carpenter, who has pitched only 17 innings all year.
