WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jordan Zimmermann pitched eight strong innings, Asdrubal Cabrera homered and the Washington Nationals kept up their dominance of two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum, beating the San Francisco Giants 6-2 Saturday.

Jayson Werth added a pair of RBI singles and Denard Span had a triple and single for the NL East-leading Nationals, one night after San Francisco ended their 10-game winning streak.

Zimmermann (9-5) got off to a shaky start when Angel Pagan led off with a double and Hunter Pence followed with a home run. Zimmermann quickly settled in and allowed seven hits overall, striking out eight without a walk.

Lincecum (10-9) was seeking his 100th career win, but turned in the second-shortest start of his career. He gave up six runs, four of them earned, on six hits and four walks in 2 2-3 innings.

In his last seven starts against Washington, he's 0-6 and has permitted 34 earned runs in 32 2-3 innings.
