April 11, 2013 at 11:11 PM

WASHINGTON, April 11 (UPI) -- Ryan Zimmerman's two-run double highlighted a three-run fourth inning Thursday that gave Washington the lead en route to a 7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Washington swept a three-game, interleague series and the Nationals remained unbeaten at home in six outings.

It was a 3-3 game heading into the Washington fourth, but Chicago starter Dylan Axelrod put runners on first and third with one away and then threw a wild pitch that allowed pitcher Dan Haren to score the go-ahead run.

Zimmerman's double came later in the inning and the Nationals added a run in the eighth on Bryce Harper's RBI single.

Haren (1-1) gave up three runs on 10 hits over five innings to get the victory. Rafael Soriano came on in the ninth and earned his fifth save.

Axelrod (0-1) surrendered six runs on seven hits over 3 2/3.
