Nationals 7Phillies 4
Game 74 - Thursday Night, June 20th in Washington
Record - 39-35, 2nd place, 4 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Nick Pivetta couldn't escape the sixth inning and the Phillies couldn't complete the comeback in this 7-4 loss.

What It Means:  The Nationals swept the Phillies in this shortened (by rain) three-game series and now the Phils come back home for a seven-game homestand against the Marlins and Mets.

What Happened:  Jean Segura tied the game at 3-3 in the fifth with a solo home run (7).  The tie was broken in the sixth when Anthony Rendon hit a solo home run off Pivetta, and then Edubray Ramos allowed a three-run home run to Victor Robles after Pivetta had departed.  Jay Bruce had a three-hit night, including his 20th home run of the year in the seventh.

Featured Card:  In his second trip back to D.C., Bryce Harper went 1 for 9 with an RBI, four walks and three strikeouts.

Transactions:  After returning from the Injured List the night before, Pat Neshek found himself back on the list with a left hamstring strain suffered in Wednesday night's loss.  Ranger Suarez, who had been the 26th man for the double header, remained on the roster.
