Well, at least everyone who attended tonight's game got a voucher for free food.

The Brewers had no answers for Jordan Zimmermann tonight, as the Auburndale native held them scoreless for six innings. They brought the tying run to the plate following Jonathan Lucroy's solo home run in the eighth, but scored just one run in the game despite the fact that all five of their hits went for extra bases.

All told, the Brewers actually rebounded pretty after Tom Gorzelanny had to leave the game in the second inning. The Brewer starting pitcher was hit on the wrist with a line drive and was unable to continue, but x-rays were negative. That forced Alfredo Figaro into early duty, and he allowed a single run on two hits over four innings.

The only Brewer with multiple hits tonight was Rickie Weeks, who went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and was hit by a pitch. This was only Weeks' second multi-hit game in his last 17 appearances. He also committed an error in the ninth inning that allowed Washington's fourth run to score.

This series continues tomorrow night when Donovan Hand takes on Dan Haren at 6:10.
