Jordan Zimmerman (Auburndale, Wi. native) earned his career best 13th win, helping the Washington Nationals knock off the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 at Miller Park on Friday night.
Zimmermann (13-6) went 12-8 in 2012 in 32 starts. Last night’s win came in just his 22nd start. Zimmerman worked six innings, striking out four and walking four.
The Brewers only run came on Jonathan Lucroy’s solo home run off of reliever Tyler Clippard in the 8th inning. The Brewers finished the game 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position.
Bryce Harper clubbed his 16th home run of the season in the sixth inning and drove in another run when he reached on an error in the 9th.
Brewers starter Tom Gorzelanny had to leave the game in the second inning when he took a line drive off the bat of Jason Werth. The ball struck Gorzelanny on the arm. The Brewers said Gorzelanny has a left elbow contusion and X-rays were negative.
