Phillies Vs Nationals Sunday Night Baseball: Cole Hamels Looks To Salvage Final Game Of Series

A pair of National League East Division ace will square-off in prime time Sunday, when the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals finish a best-of-three series in the nation's capital.

Youngster Jordan Zimmermann (1-2, 1.89 ERA) will be on the mound for Washington, which hasn't provided its ace with a lot of run support, however, will be looking for its seventh straight victory over Philadelphia.

Phillies Vs. National Final Score: Phils Lose To Nats, 7-1

The Philadelphia Phillies dropped their second consecutive games to the NL East-leading Washington Nationals on Saturday, losing by a final score of 7-1.

Nats lefty, Gio Gonzalez, continued his string of dominant performances as he went seven innings, allowing only one run on four hits and walk, while fanning seven. Vance Worley went six innings for the Phils, allowing five runs on 11 hits and two walks.

The Phillies struck first, on a fourth inning sacrifice fly from Carlos Ruiz, but Worley ran into some trouble the fouling inning, when he allowed four of his five runs. Former Phillie, Jason Werth, took Worley deep for a three-run homer, followed by an RBI double from Rick Ankiel.

Sunday's series finale is scheduled for 8:00 PM on ESPN.

Cliff Lee Injury Update: Pitcher Expected To Return Wednesday

One of the Philadelphia Phillies three aces, Cliff Lee, has been on the disabled list since April 19 with a strained oblique muscle. He threw a bullpen session on Saturday and expects to return Wednesday, against the New York Mets.

If he continues to feel OK -- and there is no reason to think he will not -- he will face the New York Mets on Wednesday at Citizens Bank Park. Kyle Kendrick, who had been starting in Lee's place, will return to the bullpen.

Lee's pitched 23 innings for the Phils this season, sporting an ERA of 1.96. He's striking out less batters during his short 2012 stint, than he did in 2011, but his groundball/flyball rate was an absurdly good 2.77 before hitting the DL.

Nationals Vs. Phillies Final Score: Washington Earns Walk-Off Victory, 4-3, In 11 Innings

The Philadelphia Phillies seemed to have everything rolling their way Friday. But a lapse by the bullpen led to a 11-inning marathon and a disappointing 4-3 loss to NL East Division foe the Washington Nationals.

Phillies starting pitcher Kyle Kendrick tossed five innings and allowed just one run, but relievers Joe Savery and Chad Qualls couldn't hold onto the victory. Kendrick left with Philadelphia ahead 3-1, however, Savery gave up a run in the bottom of the sixth and Qualls surrendered the game-tying run in the eighth that led to extra innings.

The game ended on an run-scoring single by Nats' catcher Wilson Ramos, who lined a slider from losing pitcher Michael Schwimer into center field in the bottom of the 11th.

Overall, the Phillies (13-14) collected just six hits, two of them by catcher Carlos Ruiz, and were 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position.
