Round One to Werth

Jayson Werth got the best of his old teammates last night as the Washington Nationals handed the Phillies their third loss of the season, 7-4.

Werth went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, two runs scored and a walk.

Blanton was a little better than his first start, but still struggled, allowing five runs on seven hits, one walk and one home run over six innings. He struck out four.

Livan Hernandez pitched very well, allowing just one run, a solo homer to Ryan Howard in the second, on seven hits, no walks and six strikeouts in 6.2 innings of work.

The Phillies have several wasted opportunities at the plate, most notably a John Mayberry pinch-hit strike out with one out and the bases loaded in the 7th.

Tonight, the Phillies will really look to show Werth that he made a mistake in leaving when he has to face Roy Halladay.
