Jordan Zimmermann (6-6) pitched six scoreless innings allowing four hits and striking out six for the Nationals, who have won six of eight.

Josh Johnson (5-6) lost to Washington for the first time in his career as he allowed five runs and 11 hits in 5 1-3 innings. Johnson was 8-0 in 15 starts against the Nationals.
