Phillies 8, Nationals 4

PHILADELPHIA — Pinch-hitter Grady Sizemore hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning, helping the Phillies complete a three-game sweep. Marlon Byrd hit a two-run homer and Jimmy Rollins hit a solo shot for last-place Philadelphia, which went 7-2 on its best homestand this season. Former Tampa Catholic standout Denard Span fell a triple short of the cycle for the Nationals, who had won 12 of 13 before being swept.
