WASHINGTON (AP) - Ryan Zimmerman hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning, giving the Washington Nationals a 7-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.

Zimmerman’s one-out drive onto the grass-covered batters eye in center field came on a fastball from Brad Lidge (1-1). Michael Morse led off the ninth with a single, and Adam Kennedy walked before Zimmerman’s drive. It was Zimmerman’s 18th homer of the season.

Drew Storen (3-2) earned the win after facing two batters in the ninth.
