Nationals Vs. Phillies Final Score: Washington Can't Pull The Sweep, Lose 4-1

The Washington Nationals are attempting to pull the sweep on the Philadelphia Phillies after winning the first two games in the series. Despite getting Ryan Zimmerman back in the lineup, the Nats struggled to plate runs, scoring just once in the game on an Adam LaRoche solo home run. In Zimmerman's return, he went just 1-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Cole Hamels pitched eight innings, allowing just four hits and striking out eight batters on the night. Edwin Jackson pitched seven innings for the Nats, giving up seven hits and three earned runs. The Nats fail to pick up the sweep, going down 4-1 to the Phillies in the final game of the series.
