ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 16, 2014) - Washington Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmerman has been selected as the Hickok Belt Award winner for the month of September 2014.

In addition to posting a 4-0 record and 1.32 ERA, Zimmerman held opposing batters to a .172 batting average for the month -- helping propel the Nationals into the playoffs. Not content to stop there, Zimmerman closed out the season by pitching the Washington Nationals' first ever no-hitter in their September 29th game against the Miami Marlins.
