Jordan Zimmermann allowed four hits in five scoreless innings and also had a RBI infield single, helping the Washington Nationals beat the New York Mets 4-0 Thursday in the final Florida spring training game for both teams.

Zimmermann struck out three, walked none and finished the exhibition season with a 0.50 ERA in 13 innings. He went 1 for 2 at the plate, including a bases-loaded infield single off Cory Mazzoni in the second.

Mazzoni grabbed his right elbow after Zimmermann's hit and was diagnosed with triceps soreness.

Bryce Harper was 2 for 4 with a RBI, and Denard Span added three singles and scored a run.

Eric Young Jr. was 3 for 4 and Ike Davis had two singles for the Mets.

New York plays Toronto on Friday and Saturday in Montreal before going home for its opener Monday against Washingon. The Nationals host Detroit on Saturday in Washington.
