by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Rafael Soriano picked up a rare win Thursday against the Diamondbacks. 

Soriano entered with the game tied, and was able to get through the inning without giving up any runs. He did issue a walk, but worked out of trouble with an inning-ending double play. Soriano was the beneficiary of the Nationals hot stretch. In the bottom of the inning, the Nats were able to mount a comeback, scoring on a throwing error to end the game. With the win, Soriano improved to 4-1.

Gio Gonzalez tosses fantastic start, but can't win
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez turned in a fantastic start Thursday against the Diamondbacks. 

Gonzalez allowed four hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. Gonzalez did a good job limiting the Diamondbacks early. He was able to get through the first two innings by facing the minimum six batters. He did allow a hit in the second, but got out of it with a double-play. Gonzalez was also challenged in the third, putting the first two men on. After a sac bunt moved them into scoring position, Gonzalez was able to keep them from scoring. He loaded the bases in the fifth inning, but was able to get Cliff Pennington to pop out to end the threat. 

Gonzalez was matched by Wade Miley throughout the start, and ultimately wound up with a no-decision. He'll take on the Phillies in his next start.

Ryan Zimmerman able to throw Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman was able to throw Thursday, according to The Washington Post.

Zimmerman participated in a light throwing session prior to Thursday's game. He plans to repeat the drill from different distances depending on how his hamstring responds. Manager Matt Williams said it was a small step in Zimmerman's return to action. "It’s part of the strengthening process and getting him back to some baseball activity and working through that," Williams said. "That’s the early stages of it but it’s a step for sure."

Zimmerman has been working on an anti-gravity treadmill over the past weeks. He'll have to hit, run at full speed and run the bases before he returns. The last of which will be the most difficult according to Williams because Zimmerman "has to react and turn and create different angles." 

Williams told reporters Wednesday that he believes Zimmerman will return in September.
