Harper leaves Nats’ wins over Dodgers

(Los Angeles, CA)  —  Ryan Zimmerman drove in three runs to lead the Nationals in a 6-2 win over the Dodgers.  Adam LaRoche added two RBI for Washington, which stopped a two-game slide to win its sixth in eight games.  Right fielder Bryce Harper left the game in the bottom of the fifth inning after a scary collision into the wall.  Jordan Zimmermann gave up two runs over seven-and-two-thirds innings to improve to 7-and-1.  Matt Kemp and Skip Schumaker each drove in a run for Los Angeles, which had won two in-a-row following an eight-game skid.  Josh Beckett gave up four runs, two earned, over three innings to take the loss and fall to 0-and-5.
