Brewers Fall to Nationals in 16 Inning Marathon

Ryan Zimmerman's two-run home run in the 16th inning lifted the Washington Nationals to a 4-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.  Zimmerman hit a 2-0 pitch off Mike Fiers (0-1) over the wall in left field to score Adam LaRoche for the Nationals fourth consecutive win. Tyler Clippard (5-2) pitched a scoreless 15th for the win. Rafael Soriano pitched the 16th for his 18th save.  With one out in the 16th, LaRoche hit a sharp single that bounced off the wall in right field. Zimmerman then hit his third home run of the year to give the Nationals the lead in a game that took 5 hours, 22 minutes.  The Brewers threatened in the 13th, 14th and 15th innings, but couldn't score.  Milwaukee will try to avoid a sweep by Washington Wednesday afternoon with first pitch scheduled for 1:10 p.m.
