Phillies Vs. Nationals Score Update: Philadelphia Leads Washington, 3-1 After Five Innings

The Washington Nationals are going for a series sweep against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight at Nationals Park but so far, the Nats find themselves down 3-1 after five innings of play.

Bryce Harper stole home in the bottom of the first with Chad Tracy at the plate, but that's the only offense Washington has been able to muster thus far.

Philadelphia took the lead on a two-run homer by Hunter Pence that scored Shane Victorino in the top of the third inning and Placido Polanco registered an RBI single that scored Laynce Nix in the same inning.
