Nationals Vs. Reds: Pair Of Home Runs Give Washington 2-1 Victory

The Washington Nationals (21-12) grabbed their third consecutive win on Saturday night -- a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds (16-16) at Great American Ball Park. It did, however, come at a price. During the bottom of the seventh inning, Nats cathcer Wilson Ramos was forced to leave the game after twisting his right knee while attempting to grab a passed ball. His status is unknown, possibly adding to Washington's growing list of injuries.

Helping maintain their modest winning streak, the Nationals grabbed the win after two solo home runs from Ramos and Danny Espinosa in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively.

Getting the start for Washington was Jordan Zimmermann, who lasted seven innings, struck out nine batters and gave up just one run to improve to 2-3 on the season.
