WASHINGTON — Ryan Zimmerman continued his torrid stretch with three hits and four RBIs, Jordan Zimmermann pitched six solid innings and the Washington Nationals opened a seven-game homestand with a 15-1 rout of the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.

Washington moved within six games of the first-place New York Mets, who were off Thursday, in the NL East.

Over his last 11 games, Zimmerman, who was 3 for 3 on Thursday, is 17 for 42 (.405) with seven homers and 23 RBIs.

Clint Robinson was 2 for 4 and had four RBIs, while Yunel Escobar had three hits and drove in three runs.

Bryce Harper tied a career high with walks in all four of his plate appearances, and he scored four runs. He joined Larry Doby (1951), Joe Morgan (1973) and Rickey Henderson (1989) as the only players to score four runs without an official at-bat since 1914, according to STATS.
