Carlos Lee then tied the score by lining a pitch into center field for a two-run single, and one out later Ramirez hammered a two-run shot over the left field wall.

Zambrano went six innings, giving up three runs on eight hits while walking four and fanning two for the Marlins, who gained a split in their four-game series with the Nationals.

Jackson ended up yielding four runs on six hits through five frames.

Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-3 with a solo homer while Michael Morse and Danny Espinoza each added a trio of hits for National League East-leading Washington.
