WASHINGTON -- Jordan Zimmermann is staying away from any discussion about whether he should be part of the NL All-Star team, let alone the starting pitcher. Thats fine. His numbers are doing the talking for him. Zimmermann dominated after a shaky start and rookie Anthony Rendon had his third three-hit performance as the Washington Nationals defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Wednesday night. After surrendering two runs in the first inning, Zimmermann (11-3) held the Diamondbacks scoreless with one hit over his final six innings. He allowed three hits overall, retired the final 10 batters he faced and improved to 13-0 at home dating back to May 17, 2012. The right-hander is tied for the major league lead in wins with Detroits Max Scherzer. In 16 starts, Zimmermann sports a 2.28 ERA. "It means a lot," Zimmermann said about notching his 11th victory. "These guys have given me great run support all year. Im pitching pretty well, too." The NL West-leading Diamondbacks have lost three straight, including the first two games of their current 10-game road trip. Wade Miley (4-7) allowed three runs, including an unearned run in the fifth. Denard Span scored on Ryan Zimmermans double play after Tyler Moores solo homer in the fourth tied the game. Zimmermann struck out four and issued two walks, raising his season total of base on balls to a minuscule 17 in 114 2-3 innings. Arizonas only hit against the Nationals starter after the first inning was Jason Kubels two-out single in the fourth. "He got rolling," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "Got all of his pitches over, put them where he wanted to. We had some borderline balls that we swung at when he got ahead." Tyler Clippard worked the eighth and Rafael Soriano closed out the ninth for his 21st save. Soriano allowed a one-out single and issued an intentional walk, but A.J. Pollocks popup ended the game. The Diamondbacks worked Zimmermann hard early, forcing him to throw 28 pitches in the first inning. "I just didnt feel very good in the first couple of innings," said Zimmermann, who has made 20 starts since his last home loss. "I knew I had to have some quick innings. After that and I was able to get a few and get it back to manageable pitches and go seven." As for possibly playing in the midsummer classic on July 16, Zimmermann said, "Im not thinking about that until it comes out and then Ill talk to you guys about it." Rendon had two singles and double in his first three at-bats before a flyout to the wall in the eighth inning. Since being recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on June 4, he has multihit performances in 10 of 18 games and is batting .392 (29 for 74). Groomed as a third baseman, Rendon is making the transition to second on the big league level, but its the batters box where he is most at-ease. "Thats where I feel the most comfortable," Rendon said. "Thats what Ive been doing my whole life. I like to hit." Miley pitched seven innings, allowing seven hits and one walk while striking out four. Arizona starting pitchers are 0-7 since June 5. "Felt good, got in a rhythm a little bit," said Miley, now 0-2 in his last four starts. "Made some mistakes early and they capitalized on it." Span singled off Miley leading off the fifth, advanced to second on a passed ball, moved to third on Rendons third hit and crossed home on Zimmermans double play. After picking up hits in his final three at-bats on Tuesday, Paul Goldschmidt doubled in his first plate appearance against Zimmermann, scoring Aaron Hill from first base after a walk. Martin Prados two-out single plated Goldschmidt and staked Miley to a 2-0 lead in the first before the crowd of 31,172. Zimmerman hit an RBI double in the bottom half. Washingtons third baseman returned to the starting lineup after sitting out Tuesdays series opening win due to discomfort in his surgically repaired right shoulder.

Sevilla dominated the first half at its Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium with midfielder Stephane Mbia thumping a corner kick past German Parreno on the goalkeepers league debut for the 18th-minute opener. Gameiro made it 2-0 moments before halftime when Espanyol left him unmarked to control a pass with his chest before sweeping the ball home. Espanyol pulled one back seconds after the restart when Sergio Garcia converted a penalty following Federico Fazios foul on Christian Stuani. But Gameiro worked a one-two passing combination with Marko Marin before scoring in the 84th, and Ivan Rakitic capped the victory with two minutes to play. Sevilla rose to within three points of fourth-placed Athletic Bilbao before it visits Levante on Monday. "This is the best part of the season, the most exciting," said Sevilla coach Unai Emery. "But we are not going to think about whats to come. Im concerned with my team continuing to constantly improve, more than thinking about our objectives. We are in fifth place and I want to hold onto it." Sevilla next hosts FC Porto on Thursday needing to overturn a 1-0 loss to advance in the Europa League. Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho scored two goals and earned a penalty for a third to lead his teams 4-1 win over Granada. And a last-gasp goal by striker Yiadom Boakye gave Elche a dramatic 1-0 win over Getafe in a big boostt for the small clubs campaign to remain in the first division for a second straight season.dddddddddddd Malagas first win in five consecutive home games moved Bernd Schusters side to 11th place. Camacho headed Malaga ahead in the 14th from a set piece, and he followed with another headed goal from a corner kick in the 37th. Youssef El Arabi had an opportunity to halve the difference for Granada just before halftime but goalkeeper Willy Caballero saved his penalty kick. Camacho was then fouled by Jeison Murillo, allowing Nordin Amrabat to convert the spot kick in the 50th. Juan Jimenez netted a fourth for Malaga in the 74th before El Arabi got Granadas consolation goal four minutes later. "We knew what was on the line, three important points against a direct (relegation) rival," said Camacho. "We are happy but it isnt over. We have to make sure we stay up as soon as possible." Boakye jumped above his marker to head in Carles Gils cross three minutes into stoppage time to grab the winner in the dying moments at Elche. The victory lifted Elche four points from danger. Valencia failed to rebound from its humiliating 3-0 loss at Swiss side Basel on Thursday in the Europa League as it was held to a 0-0 draw at Valladolid. The point let Valladolid emerge from the drop zone and send Getafe down into the bottom three along with Almeria and Real Betis. With six rounds to go, there are six teams within five points of the drop. Atletico Madrid leads the league by one point over Barcelona, with Real Madrid another two points behind after all three title rivals won on Saturday. ' ' '
