National League Game Summary - Philadelphia at Washington



(Thursday, June 5)

Final Score: Washington 4, Philadelphia 2

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Adam LaRoche hit a two-run homer, Doug Fister tossed seven solid innings and the Washington Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-2, to complete a three-game sweep.

Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman each knocked in a run for the Nationals, who went 5-3 during an eight-game homestand. Fister (4-1) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out five.

"The main focus is staying down in the zone and moving it in and out," said Fister. "They got some nice swings on the ball, but the guys made some nice plays and we play as a team here."

John Mayberry Jr. hit a solo homer for the Phillies, who have lost six in a row for the first time since dropping eight straight from July 20-28, 2013. Chase Utley also had an RBI.

Philadelphia starter Kyle Kendrick (1-6) gave up four runs on six hits with five walks over seven innings.

"We lost, so it wasn't good enough," said Kendrick. "I walked five guys so that wasn't good. My command just wasn't there tonight."

Each team scored a run in the first inning. Ben Revere led off the game with a double down the left-field line, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and raced home on Utley's single to right-center field.

In the bottom half of the frame, Anthony Rendon singled and LaRoche walked to put men on first and second with two outs. Zimmerman followed with an RBI single to left.

Washington plated three more runs in the fifth. Denard Span led off with a double, moved to third when Rendon flied out to deep center field and scored on Werth's single to right-center field. LaRoche followed with a blast to right, making it 4-1.

Mayberry's homer in the seventh cut the gap to two, but Tyler Clippard tossed a perfect eighth for Washington and Rafael Soriano pitched a scoreless ninth to record his 12th save of the season.

Game Notes

Kendrick fell to 5-9 lifetime against Washington ... Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-3 and is eight hits shy of passing Mike Schmidt (2,234) for the most in team history.
