MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU-TSN) - Jordan Zimmermann struck out five over six strong innings, as the Washington Nationals edged the Milwaukee Brewers, 4-1, Friday in the opener of a three-game series at Miller Park.

Auburndale, Wisconsin native and UW-Stevens Point alum Zimmermann (13-6) scattered four hits and as many walks over his scoreless outing to snap a three-start skid. Rafael Soriano retired the Brewers in order in the ninth to secure his 27th save of the season.

Bryce Harper hammered a solo homer and finished with two RBI, while Denard Span and Wilson Ramos each collected two hits and a run scored for the Nationals, who were coming off back-to-back losses to the Detroit Tigers.

Milwaukee reliever Alfredo Figaro (1-3) was tagged with the loss after giving up a run on two hits over four frames in relief of starter Tom Gorzelanny, who exited in the second inning after taking a liner off his pitching elbow.

Jonathan Lucroy homered for the Brewers, who finished 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position while dropping their second straight game.
