WASHINGTON -

Right-hander Jordan Zimmermann worked around eight hits over six innings, Ryan Zimmerman's three hits included a two-run double, and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 Thursday for a season-opening three-game sweep.

Jayson Werth tacked on a three-run homer in the seventh, and Bryce Harper had another eventful day, collecting two hits, taking an elbow to the face while scoring a run, and getting thrown out trying to steal third.

The defending NL East champion Nationals outscored the Marlins 11-1 in the series. At least Miami finally got someone home, ending a 19-inning run drought in the second Thursday on Justin Ruggiano's homer to right off Zimmermann (1-0).

Wade LeBlanc (0-1) took the loss.
