Phillies 2, Nationals 1
Collin Balester struck out five and allowed six hits over six innings. (AP)
The Nationals snapped their scoreless streak, at 26 1/3 innings, in the eighth, but they couldn't push across one more to tie the Phillies. Collin Balester was very strong, save one mistake, over six innings, only getting hurt by a Chase Utley homer in the third.
