The Phils’ first win yesterday was a rather straightforward 5-3 victory. To take an early lead for the Phillies, Nick Castellanos scored a two-run double at the top of the first. Odubel Herrera extended the lead with an RBI groundout. Alec Bohm added to the lead in the third with an RBI two. Lane Thomas scored an RBI double for the Nationals in the third to give them one back.
The Phillies scored one more run in the sixth to make it 5-1. The final score was 5-3 after two more runs by the Nationals in sixth.
Game 2 was a little more interesting. Josh Bell scored a home run in the bottom of the second for the Nationals to take the lead. Matt Vierling responded with a solo home run for Philadelphia in the third to tie the game. The Phils led 3-1 at the end of the third. However, the Nats returned in the fourth to tie the game with a second home run by Bell.
The Nationals won the sixth with a sac fly by Maikel Franco. Luis Garcia scored an RBI double and made it 5-3. Bryce Harper scored a two-run run to tie the game for the Phils. After Matt Vierling’s go-ahead homer, Nelson Cruz scored to tie the game after a Phillies error. In a controversial play in the 10th, the Phillies took an 8-6 lead after Rhys Hoskins was interfered with base running. The Nats made one last push, but it was not enough.
Today the Phillies will attempt to make it five consecutive wins with a win.
