MILWAUKEE, July 28 (UPI) -- Jordan Zimmerman and three Nationals relievers teamed up on a six-hitter Saturday, staking Washington to a 4-1 victory over Milwaukee.

Zimmerman (8-6) stretched his unbeaten streak to seven starts, stifling the Brewers on one run over six innings. The right-hander allowed five hits, walked one and struck out six while lowering his ERA to 2.28.

Drew Storen and Sean Burnett each contributed a scoreless relief frame and Tyler Clippard followed suit, striking out a pair in the ninth for his 19th save as National League East-leading Washington took a 2-1 lead in the four-game series.

Corey Brown socked a solo homer and Tyler Moore added a two-run shot in the fourth inning for the Nationals.

Milwaukee's Randy Wolf (3-7) was tagged for four runs on nine hits in over seven full innings.

Rickie Weeks provided the Brewers' only RBI.
