MLB: Washington 6, Miami 1

April 4, 2013 at 6:54 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, April 4 (UPI) -- Washington pitching surrendered its first run of the season but Jayson Werth's three-run home run Thursday sent the Nationals to a 6-1 victory over Miami.

The Nationals had opened the season with consecutive shutouts but the Marlins finally got on the board with Justin Ruggiano's opposite-field home run in the second inning.

However, Ryan Zimmerman had already knocked in two runs with a first-inning double so Washington still has yet to be behind this season.

The Nationals added an RBI single by Bryce Harper in the third inning and a long drive to center by Werth in the sixth for a three-run home run.

Miami's Wade LeBlanc (0-1) allowed the first three Washington runs while Mike Dunn threw the pitch Werth hit out.

Jordan Zimmermann (1-0) allowed eight hits but only Ruggiano managed more than a single. He walked two and struck out one over six innings. The Washington bullpen contributed three innings of no-hit relief.
