Zimmerman’s HR off Miller in 10th leads Nats past Yanks 8-6
WASHINGTON (AP) — Ryan Zimmerman’s two-run shot with two outs in the 10th inning off Yankees closer Andrew Miller, who hadn’t allowed a run this season, lifted the Washington Nationals to an 8-6 comeback victory over AL East-leading New York on Tuesday night.
Zimmerman’s fifth homer this season — and 10th game-ending homer of his career — made a winner of Matt Grace (2-0), who threw the 10th.
Miller (0-1) had converted his first 13 save chances of 2015.
Bryce Harper hit one of Washington’s three solo shots, giving him an NL-high 15 homers this season.
The Nationals have won three games in a row and improved to 13-4 in May. The Yankees, meanwhile, have lost six of their last seven games.
