Auburndale's Zimmermann Wins 12th vs. Brewers

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Bryce Harper homered on his first swing since coming off the disabled list and his Washington Nationals teammates quickly joined in, beating the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 10-5 on Monday night.
After missing 31 games with bursitis in his left knee -- the most lingering fallout from his collision with the Dodger Stadium wall -- Harper energized the Nationals and sparked their second rout in two days. After toying with .500 for the entire month of June, Washington moved two games above the break-even mark for the first time since late May.
Jayson Werth had five RBIs, and even pitcher Jordan Zimmermann from Auburndale, WI was an offensive juggernaut with a team-high three hits, including a double to start a five-run third inning and a single to open a two-run fourth. He pitched 6 innings, allowing 4 earned runs. But improved to 12-3, the 12 wins tied for the MLB lead.
