Found August 28, 2012 on Philliedelphia:
  Sunday’s game was a beautiful end to a sweep of the Washington Nationals.  Lee achieved his first win at CBP since September 2011, and gave up only one run  (Werth brought home by Moore) in seven innings pitched.  The game was started up with Frandsens base hit, followed by Lee’s double to take the lead. J Roll helped his team stay on top with a two run homer into right field. The Phil’s stayed hot for the remainder of the game and won to sweep the Nationals in the final game of the series.  Tonight at 7:05, the Phillies will face off against division rivals The Mets at Citizens Bank Park.  Vance Worley  (4.06 ERA, 6-9) hopes to start things right for the Phil’s. He is following up a solid rebound game last time out against the Reds. He did, however, take the loss, but in his six innings pitched, he only allowed two runs.  It wasn’t his most impressive game, but after three straight starts were he didn’t last longer than five innings, it was an improvement. Worley...
