WASHINGTON (AP) - Anthony Rendon homered and drove in four runs, Jordan Zimmermann pitched seven shutout innings, and the Washington Nationals routed the Philadelphia Phillies 11-0 Saturday night.

Philadelphia starter A.J. Burnett (6-11) and manager Ryne Sandberg didn't last long. Both were ultimately ejected when Burnett motioned and yelled toward home plate umpire Chris Guccione after a ball call during Washington's four-run second inning.

Rendon singled, hit a three-run homer, and doubled in his first three at-bats.

Denard Span, Asdrubal Cabrera and Wilson Ramos each had two of Washington's 14 hits, and every Nationals starter, including Zimmermann, hit safely.

Zimmermann (7-5) held the Phillies to five singles and struck eight without a walk for his 50th career win, and first since June 30th.

He retired the last 11 batters he faced and left after throwing 97 pitches.

Burnett allowed five runs, one was earned, and three hits in losing his third straight decision.
