VIERA, Fla. (AP) -- Jordan Zimmermann threw four scoreless innings in his third start of spring training and the Washington Nationals tied a Miami Marlins split squad 1-1 Saturday.
Zimmermann, who gave up four runs on seven hits in his previous outing, struck out three and gave up six hits. Four of those hits came with two outs, but each time he was able work out of trouble.
Chad Tracy grounded out with the bases loaded in the first inning for Washington's run.
Marlins catcher John Buck had two hits and tied the game in the sixth inning with a home run off Washington reliever Rafael Martin.
