Nats Bomb Worley, Phils

It could be a long season for the Phillies.

Washington took Phillies pitching deep three times, taking the second game of the series, 7-1, Saturday afternoon. The Nationals have won seven straight against the Phillies for the first time since they were the Montreal Expos in 1989.

Jayson Werth made a statement in the 5th inning. With runners on the corners, Werth ripped a three-run bomb, flipping his bat in the process to give the Nationals a 3-1 lead.

The homer unhinged Vance Worley, who would allow three more hits in the inning, including an RBI double to Rick Ankiel to make it a 4-1 game.

In the next inning, Worley gave up his second homer of the game, a solo shot to Ian Desmond to give Washington a 5-1 lead.

The homers ended Worley’s day early. He went six innings, allowing five runs on 11 hits and two walks, striking out four.

Though Worley’s day was done, the Nationals offense was not. Joe Savery came in to pitch the 7th. After allowing a one-out single to Werth, Chad Tracy ripped a two-run homer off him to give the Nats a 7-1 lead.

The only run Philadelphia could get off Washington starter Gio Gonzalez was in the 4th inning. Shane Victorino scored on a sacrifice fly by Carlos Ruiz to give the Phils a 1-0 lead.

2B: Pence (6), Victorino (3), Rollins (4), Galvis (6).

WP: Gonzalez (3-1). LP: Worley (2-2).

Boxscore.
