A.J. Burnett surrendered four second-inning runs as the Braves claimed the series opener on Friday night by a score of 6-4 at Turner Field. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Break Up: Phillies coast into All-Star Break as Nats roll

Post to Twitter

Kyle Kendrick’s first-inning struggles continued three batters into the game. Jayson Werth greeted his former teammates with his second home run in as many days, a three-run shot.

That started a powerful day for the Nationals offense and a long afternoon for Phillies pitching. Washington pounded out 12 hits and scored 10 runs to close the first half of the season with a bang.

The Phillies, meanwhile, went out as they have several times this season, with a whimper, as they fell on Sunday afternoon, 10-3, at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Nat Snap: Zimmerman’s single helps Nats edge Phillies in 10

Post to Twitter

With an eighth-inning RBI single by Ben Revere, the Phillies had erased a three-run deficit. This was the Phillies team of the past five days, the one that stunned the Brewers for nine runs after six no-hit innings.

But in two short innings, another five-game winning streak was over.

Chase Utley’s costly fielding decision led to the go-ahead run for the Nationals on a two-out RBI single by Ryan Zimmerman. An insurance run on a wild pitch officially dashed hopes of a sixth straight win as the Phillies fell in 10 innings to the Nationals with a 5-3 loss on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park.
