The Washington Nationals are attempting to pull the sweep on the Philadelphia Phillies after winning the first two games in the series and getting Ryan Zimmerback in the lineup, but after four innings the Nats trail the Phillies 2-0.
Cole Hamels has walked three batters so far in the game, but hasn't given up a single hit yet. Edwin Jackson on the other hand has given up five hits through four innings and two earned runs. Mike Fontenot hit in the first run for the Phillies in the second inning with a single to right field while Shane Victorino doubled in the third inning to give the Phils a 2-0 lead.
