West Virginia @ Hagerstown (DH) – July 26

West Virginia @ Hagerstown (DH) – July 26

Game One – West Virginia 8, Hagerstown 4

Game Two – Hagerstown 9, West Virginia 3

The West Virginia Power split a doubleheader Monday with the Hagerstown Suns.  Game One feature two rehabbing pitchers, Jordan Zimmermann and Brett Lorin.  Zimmermann is expected to be the Nationals’ number two starter once he makes it back from Tommy John surgery, and it looked like it’d be a tough game for the Power when he fanned the first two hitters, Elevys Gonzalez and Jarek Cunningham.  Both hitters tried to work the count and fell behind, then couldn’t handle it when Zimmermann started changing speeds.  After that, however, the Power hitters got more aggressive early in the count and hammered Zimmermann throughout the rest of his outing.

Game Two was a different story, as West Virginia starter Quinton Miller, another pitcher working his way back from injury, failed to get through the first inning and got tattooed for seven runs.  Hagerstown coasted from there.
