Zimmermann quiets D-backs in Nationals' 3-2 winPosted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jordan Zimmermann dominated after a shaky start and rookie Anthony Rendon had his third three-hit performance as the Washington Nationals defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Wednesday night.
The NL West-leading Diamondbacks have lost three straight, including the first two games of their current 10-game road trip.
Zimmermann (11-3) surrendered two runs in the first inning, but held the Diamondbacks scoreless with one hit over his final six innings. He allowed three hits overall, retired the final 10 batters he faced and improved to 13-0 at home dating back to May 17, 2012.
Wade Miley (4-7) allowed three runs, including an unearned run in the fifth. Denard Span scored on Ryan Zimmerman's double play after Tyler Moore's solo homer in the fourth tied the game.
