Ryan Zimmerman homered twice and drove in three runs to power the Washington Nationals to a 9-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.
The AL West-chasing Los Angeles Angels have to wait until the final series of the regular season for another head-to-head opportunity against Texas.
Jeff Mathis had a 10-game hitting streak during the first month of last season and was batting .324 heading into April 19.
"He was throwing a lot of strikes," Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis said.
"Jeff played because he was, at times, the clear-cut choice on the defensive end," Scioscia said, recalling when Mathis shared catching time with Mike Napoli, since traded away. "When you have options on the defensive end at that position and all three are at a proficient level defensively and you're confident with (them), obviously you're going to go with the best offensive option. But that could vary from day to day."
