Zimmerman, Strasburg power Nationals to 3-game sweep
- April 21, 2017
Ryan Zimmerman has faced R.A. Dickey enough to know what to expect from his knuckleball.
Zimmerman hit a two-run homer, Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 and the Washington Nationals completed a three-game sweep with a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.
A night after they had 14 runs on 20 hits, the Nationals couldn’t solve Dickey until Zimmerman homered in the sixth to erase a 2-1 deficit.
