By Joseph White, AP

Wilson Ramos had four hits and five RBIs, Jordan Zimmermann pitched seven innings for his NL-best 18th win and the Washington Nationals kept up their late playoff push by routing the Philadelphia Phillies 11-2 Sunday.

Denard Span extended his hitting streak to 26 games, Bryce Harper hit a pair of doubles and a single and scored three times, and every player in the Nationals' starting lineup had at least one hit.

Washington, which began the day 51/2 games behind Cincinnati for the NL's second wild-card berth, has won eight of nine and 25 of 35.

Zimmerman (18-8) scattered seven hits and single runs in the second and third innings with seven strikeouts.
