Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Jordan Zimmermann tossed seven solid innings
while Danny Espinosa launched the go-ahead solo home run in the sixth, leading
the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the
middle test of a three-game set.
Zimmermann (2-3) fanned nine and surrendered just a run on five hits and a
walk for Washington, which has won three straight on the heels of a three-game
Wilson Ramos added a solo shot, but left the game in the seventh inning with
an apparent knee injury. The injury occurred as Ramos was tracking down a
passed ball from Zimmermann. Ramos hurried to the ball, but as he went to pick
it up, his knee buckled underneath him.
Mat Latos allowed a run on three hits and five walks in five innings for the
Reds, who have lost three of their last four.
