WASHINGTON, June 9 (UPI) -- Jordan Zimmermann fired seven shutout innings for Washington Sunday in the Nationals' 7-0 interleague defeat of Minnesota in the first game of a doubleheader.

Zimmermann (9-3) allowed only two hits and a pair of walks while striking out eight in the 111-pitch gem.

Anthony Rendon provided an RBI single in the fourth, breaking a scoreless tie, and added a two-run double to cap a five-run outburst in the fifth inning.

Ian Desmond went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and three runs scored for the Nationals, who evened their three-game series in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

Twins starter Scott Diamond (4-5) was tagged for seven runs (six earned) on 10 hits in a 4 2/3-inning effort.
