Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Ryan Zimmerman crushed a pair of home runs and the Washington Nationals topped the Atlanta Braves, 9-2

Zimmerman remained red-hot, going 3-for-5 with the two jacks and three RBI. In 25 games since June 24, Zimmerman has hit a scorching .392 with 11 homers and 12 RBI.

Michael Morse, Danny Espinosa and Roger Bernadina all raked three hits as the Nats won their second straight game to salvage a four-game series split.

After tossing seven scoreless innings against the Mets in his last, Ross Detwiler (5-3) twirled another gem, holding Atlanta to two runs -- one earned -- in seven innings.

Jair Jurrjens (3-4), who matched a career-high with eight runs allowed in his last outing, was shelled again. The right-hander was tagged for six runs on nine hits in 2 1/3 innings.
