CLEARWATER, FLA. (AP) - Ryan Zimmerman hit two home runs off Jamie Moyer and the Washington National overcame Ryan Howard’s 10th longball of spring training to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-10 Thursday.

The 46-year-old Moyer, entering his 23rd major league season, gave up 11 hits and nine runs in four innings. He is scheduled to start the Phillies’ second game, Tuesday against the Atlanta Braves.

Howard finished the Grapefruit League with some gaudy numbers: a .310 average, 10 home runs and 24 RBIs in 26 games.
