Phillies lose to Nationals on Bryce Harper's walk-off homer

Phillies lose to Nationals on Bryce Harper's walk-off homer

He will come up from Triple A to take the place of injured Clay Buchholz.

Nationals recruit Adam Eaton went three for five with two runs scored on Sunday, raising his average to.326 for the season.

NATIONALS 6, PHILLIES 4: Bryce Harper hit a two-run homer in the third inning and a game-ending, three-run drive with two outs in the ninth to lead the Nationals over the Phillies.

PIRATES 8, CUBS 7: Andrew McCutchen hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in a five-run seventh inning that led the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Chicago Cubs 8-7 on Saturday.

Now with the score 3-2, the Nationals went to their bullpen.

The same holds for Cameron Rupp, who has struggled at the plate and is hitting.167.

"I think it's more concentration and trying too hard more than anything".

CINCINNATI - Ryan Braun hit a two-run home run, and Travis Shaw and Eric Thames added solo shots, lifting Milwaukee past Cincinnati in the finale of a four-game series.

For the second game in a row, the Phillies rallied in the late innings to take a lead.

Harper's first home run, off Jerad Eickhoff, broke a 1-1 tie. What was a 3-1 lead with six outs to go turned into a 4-3 deficit in the blink of an eye (or a laborious forty minutes) and only the heroics of Harper, who crushed a full-count tater to walk-off in the ninth, salvaged a win.

"Benoit's tough with that devastating changeup he throws", Harper said. Harper battled back into a 3-2 count.

"He gave us five good innings", Mackanin said.

New leak suggests NSA penetrated Mideast banking networks
In a statement, EastNets said there was "no credibility" to the allegation that its customers' details had been stolen. These exploits have been allegedly used by the NSA to target several banks and the SWIFT banking system .

ROCKIES 4, GIANTS 3: Antonio Senzatela settled down after a rough first inning, holding San Francisco scoreless on four hits over the next six innings to win his second straight start as Colorado won on the road.

"It was a heater", Harper said of the 97 miles per hour fastball he hit 419+ feet to center in Nats Park.

OUR PICK: The under is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams Washington, is 4-0 in Gonzalez's last four starts against the Phillies and is 9-2-1 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams. Odubel Herrera moved Altherr to third with a swinging bunt back to the pitcher before Freddy Galvis scored Altherr on a fielder's choice grounder to second.

Trevor Cahill (0-2) gave up four runs, four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. Gio Gonzalez gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. After striking out Franco, Glover surrendered a game-tying single to Tommy Joseph and Gonzalez was tagged with a no decision. "Nine games is not enough to know somebody", Washington manager Dusty Baker said Friday of Wieters. And the Phillies are a team right now that may play gritty, gutty and whatever cliché you want to throw out there.

In the third, he got ahead of Anthony Rendon, 0-2, before giving up an infield hit.

It was his bunt single to lead off the fourth inning that short-circuited any or all premature thoughts of a flawless game for Washington Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark.

Senzatela allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings, and Greg Holland pitched a flawless ninth for his seventh straight save this season.

Miami had almost won the game in the previous at-bat, a double by Miguel Rojas that went all the way to fence.

Righty Aaron Nola (1-0, 4.50) will start for the Phillies this afternoon against right-hander Stephen Strasburg (1-0, 3.21 ERA). Harper didn't even have a chance to get to his feet before Jayson Werth jumped on him in a celebratory embrace.
