WASHINGTON, July 6 (UPI) -- Ryan Zimmerman's RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning gave Washington an 8-7 win over Florida Thursday afternoon.
It was the latest in a string of late-inning heroics for the rookie third baseman. He hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth on Tuesday for a 6-4 victory, and hit a game-winning homer against the New York Yankees on June 18.
Washington has won five of its last six games.
The winner was Chad Cordero (5-3).
The loser was Jason Vargas (1-2).
