Nationals Sweep Phils’ With 4-2 Win

The latest setback, a 4-2 loss to the Nationals on Thursday afternoon at Nationals Park, capped Washington’s three-game series sweep. Beyond concerns over the offense and inconsistent starting pitching, it also led to postgame questions about how much longer the skidding can go before the organization’s decision makers decide it’s time to break up the roster.

Former Phillie Jayson Werth hit a go-ahead single off Kyle Kendrick in the fifth inning and Adam LaRoche followed with a booming home run as Washington completed a three-game sweep of the Phillies with a 4-2 win yesterday afternoon.

For a proud team 10 games under .500, it’s clearly time to starting earning some wins.

“I don’t look at it, honestly,” Rollins said of the team’s record. “I know we’re not winning. We haven’t been winning. It really doesn’t matter how far below .500 you are if you’re not winning. You’re going in the wrong direction.”
