SAN FRANCISCO — Jordan Zimmermann pitched seven impressive innings and drove in the tiebreaking run to lead the Washington Nationals over the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Ian Desmond had an RBI single and Wilson Ramos added two hits as the Nationals rebounded from Monday’s frustrating 13-inning loss to win despite stranding 11 runners.

Zimmermann scattered five hits and had three strikeouts to beat the Giants for the second time this season. The right-hander also won consecutive starts for the first time this year.

Nate Schierholtz doubled in San Francisco’s only run in the second.
