Zimmerman's blast lifts Nationals over Padres

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN DIEGO -- Ryan Zimmerman's eighth-inning home run backed Edwin Jackson's seven strong innings as the Washington Nationals edged the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Thursday.

Zimmerman's 29th home run, an opposite-field blast, came off reliever Kirby Yates' 94 mph fastball.

Jackson (4-2) was stellar as he beat the Padres for the first time after dropping six previous decisions. Jackson, who counts San Diego among the 11 teams he has pitched for, surrendered a run, eight hits and a walk. He struck out four.
