Taylor Jordan didn't expect his season would end on Friday night, after he tossed six strong innings to bring his combined major and minor league total to 142 innings. The longest season of his career has worn on him, but he still had enough left in the tank. The Nationals, too, were hoping to start him at least one, or two, more times. But lingering back soreness pushed the Nationals to avoid further injury and cut short his season, which was soon about to end because of a team-mandated shutdown in his first full season back from 2011 Tommy John surgery.
