Lidge Actually Gets The Save As Phillies Beat Nationals In Extra Innings

Washington, DC (Sports Network) – Placido Polanco went 3-for-6 with two runs batted in, including the go-head RBI base hit in the 11th inning, as the Philadelphia Phillies clipped the Washington Nationals, 6-4, in the finale of a three-game set.

Jayson Werth added an RBI double in the 11th as part of a 2-for-5 effort and Ben Francisco chipped in with two hits and a pair of RBI for the Phillies, who managed to salvage a win in the series and have won nine of 11 overall.

Jose Contreras (6-3) was credited with the win for throwing a scoreless 10th inning and Brad Lidge, who was charged with a blown save in Saturday’s 7-5 loss, tossed a 1-2-3 bottom of the 11th to record his 11th save of the season.
