Phillies Vs. Nationals Final Score: Washington Loses Again, 3-2

The Washington Nationals dropped their first game of the series against the Philadelphia Phillies in an 8-0 blowout, but looked to even the series with first baseman Adam LaRoche back in the lineup on Wednesday evening. LaRoche back in seemed to help immediately as he helped the Nats jump out to an early lead with an RBI single in the first inning, sparking the Nats to a 1-0 lead which eventually turned into an early 2-0 lead.

The Nats bats went silent after that however, as the team struggled to plate runs the rest of the night as the Phillies wittled away at the 2-0 lead before eventually overtaking the Nats on a Nate Schierholtz solo home run in the fifth inning, following up Jimmy Rollins' second home run of the night to tie the game.

Jonathan Papelbon came in to close out the game for Philadelphia as the Nats drop two in a row to the Phillies, 3-2.
