MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin-native Jordan Zimmerman pitched his first game against Milwaukee, and his teammates hit three home runs in the Washington Nationals' 4-1 victory over the Brewers on Saturday night.
Zimmerman (8-6) struck out six and gave up five hits in six innings. He was born in Auburndale and played at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
Tyler Clippard pitched the ninth for his 19th save.
Washington center fielder Bryce Harper was a late scratch because of a stomach virus and was replaced by Corey Brown.
In the fourth, Brown's solo homer to left -- his first career hit -- and Tyler Moore's two-run blast gave Washington a 3-0 lead. Ryan Zimmerman added a solo homer in the fifth.
Randy Wolf (3-7) gave up four earned runs on nine hits in seven innings for Milwaukee, which got a home run from Rickie Weeks in the fifth inning.
