Final: Phillies 3, Nationals 2.
WP: Vance Worley (6-6, 3.63 ERA) LP: Edwin Jackson (6-7, 3.57 ERA) SV: Jonathan Papelbon (23)
Newly acquired Nate Schierholtz and Josh Lindblom put on the red pinstripes for the first time Wednesday evening in the second game of the three-game series down in Washington.
Schierholtz went 2-5 with 1 RBI. His home run in the 5th inning was the eventual go-ahead and game-winning run. Lindblom made an appearance in the eighth inning, facing two batters- one of whom struck out.
Jimmy Rollins was a key factor in tonight's victory, as he homered twice off of opposing starter Edwin Jackson. Tonight was his first multi-homer night since July 20, 2011. He has eight such games in total for his career.
All-Star Cole Hamels starts in the series finale Thursday evening against left-handed pitcher Ross Detwiler.

Nate Schierholtz wasn't a happy camper in San Francisco, but you have to believe that his mood is somewhat better now that he's a member of the Phillies. In his first game action, Schierholtz showed off a nice swing, including his first home run as a Phillie.

WASHINGTON -- Nate Schierholtz wanted to do something that would impress his new teammates in his first game with the Philadelphia Phillies. Mission accomplished. Schierholtz made his debut with his new team a memorable one, hitting the tiebreaking homer in the fifth inning that gave Philadelphia a 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night. Jimmy Rollins...
The Phillies may have traded two-thirds of their outfield yesterday after a dismal first-half of the season, resulting in a fire sale in the Phillie's front office, but they came right out of the gates last night and pounced on Stephen Strasburg to take game one of this three game set. After an 8-0 victory in game one, the Phils are looking to take the series away from the Nats...

If it didn't sink in during last night's game, it definitely sunk in tonight: This is a new era of Phillies baseball in the outfield. Nate Schierholtz and Domonic Brown started tonight (Brown in LF) with John Mayberry, Jr. in center. As much as it hurts to say this, Shane and Hunter are an outfield duo of the past.
The Nationals beat up on Vance Worley in the first...
The newest additions to the Phillies after a few call-ups and trades are fitting in well with this team. In some ways, that is very good. In other ways, not so much.
Here are a few 2012 Phillies bad habits exhibited in last night’s game against the Nationals that they will need to get out of quickly:
- Kevin Fransden, a call-up, commited an error at 3rd base, becoming the 4th different...
