Phillies Vs. Nationals: Jimmy Rollins Power Surge Fuels 3-2 Win

Jimmy Rollins once again proved to be too much for the Washington Nationals. One night after getting an inside the park home run, the Philadelphia Phillies shortstop swatted a pair of long balls on Wednesday night, posting two runs in the Phillies' 3-2 win over their division rivals.

Rollins homered in the third and fifth innings. Nate Schierholtz also went yard in the fifth, right after Rollins, to stake the Phillies to a one-run lead.

Washington opened with a pair of runs in the first inning. Neither run was credited to stater Vance Worley, who worked seven innings for his sixth win of the year. He allowed six hits and one, but did not strike out a single batter.

Edwin Jackson surrendered all three home runs. He picked up the loss as his recorded slipped below .500 to 6-7. Jackson gave up three runs to the Phillies in his last start against them, a May 23 loss.

Philly has one more against Washington on Thursday night.
