MIAMI (AP) -- Jordan Zimmermann pitched a six-hitter for his third victory of the season, and the Washington Nationals bounced back from a humbling weekend to beat the Miami Marlins 10-3 Monday night.
Ryan Zimmerman hit his first home run and had four RBIs to lead a 16-hit outburst. Zimmermann (3-0) struck out six, walked one and threw 102 pitches in his second career complete game.
The Nationals were outscored 18-5 while being swept in a three-game series at home against Atlanta. They took out any lingering frustration on the Marlins (2-11), who came into the game tied for the worst record in the majors.
