Jordan Zimmermann allowed just two hits en route to his second career shutout as the Washington Nationals blanked the Miami Marlins, 8-0, in the second of a four-game set.
Zimmermann (19-8) carried a no-hitter over 5 2/3 innings until serving up a base hit to Donovan Solano to left-center field. He walked one and struck out nine to notch his fourth complete game of the season.
Denard Span and Jayson Werth each drove in a pair of runs while Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond and Wilson Ramos added one RBI apiece for the Nationals, who moved within 4 1/2 games of the Cincinnati Reds for the final NL Wild Card spot.
The Reds are currently playing the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Jacob Turner (3-8) allowed five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings to absorb the loss.
