Auburndale's Zimmermann Takes Loss For Nationals

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Greg Dobbs drove in a career-high five runs, including a solo homer, and Logan Morrison and John Buck each homered to lead the Florida Marlins to a 11-2 win against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

Dobbs drove in Florida's first run in the first on a groundout, scoring Omar Infante who had tripled. He added another run-scoring single in the seventh and two more on a single during Florida's five-run ninth inning.

It was the second time this year the Marlins have scored at least 10 runs. Florida beat the Cubs 13-3 on July 16.

Ricky Nolasco (7-7) rebounded from his worst performance of the season and pitched into the sixth inning, allowing two runs on three hits, as Florida won its third straight.

Jordan Zimmermann (6-9) gave up six runs on eight hits with five strikeouts.
