Nationals Vs. Phillies Final Score: Nats Get Swept, Lose 4-1 To Philly

The Philadelphia Phillies completed a three-game game sweep of the Washington Nationals Sunday afternoon, stifling the Nats' bats for a 4-1 win that's sure to leave a bad taste in everyone's mouths. Cliff Lee got the win with seven strong innings while Jordan Zimmermann was done in by a bad inning, giving up a two-run homer to Jimmy Rollins in the fifth, his final inning of work.

The Nats' division lead over the Atlanta Braves is now five games, with the Braves in action during the Sunday night game against the San Francisco Giants. Their record falls to 77-50 as they find themselves in a strange position of late; a losing streak. The loss was their fourth in a row after winning 16 of their previous 20.

After a day off Monday, the Nationals will try to get back on the horse with back-to-back two-games series against the Marlins, then the Cardinals.
