Jordan Zimmermann became the National League’s first 16-game winner, pitching seven solid innings to lead the Washington Nationals past the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Zimmermann (16-8) struck out five, walked one and allowed two runs in winning his fourth straight start.

Ryan Zimmerman’s solo shot off Phillies reliever Zach Miner in the seventh inning tied the game at 2.

Jake Diekman (1-4) walked the leadoff batter in the eighth, then allowed pinch-runner Jeff Kobernus to score on a fielder’s choice for the winning run.

The Nationals sat outfielder Bryce Harper to rest his ailing hip.
