Phils denied sweep
Photos
Nationals 4, Phillies 3
Jamie Moyer gave up two runs (one earned) over 6 2/3 impressive innings. (Tom Mihalek/AP)
The Phillies appeared poised for a sweep after Carlos Ruiz's homer in the seventh, but a rare subpar outing from Ryan Madson allowed the Nats to rally in the eighth. With the loss and the Mets' victory, the Phils are 2 1/2 games back in the East.
