NEW YORK (AP) - The Washington Nationals won with Jordan Zimmermann on the mound for a ninth straight start, getting a two-run homer from Wilson Ramos in the seventh inning of a 3-0 victory over the New York Mets on Sunday. Zimmermann allowed six hits and a walk.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Steve Pearce doubled in a ninth-inning run and scored the game-winner on a double by Kelly Johnson as the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 3-2 Sunday night to inch closer to the AL East title.
