Jayson Werth's solo shot in the third served as the Phils' first run. Kyle Kendrick matched Nats starter Tim Redding pitch-for-pitch before allowing a pair of runs in the sixth inning. The offense sputtered late as they dropped the second game of the series.
Tim Redding helped his own cause in the second, hitting a two-run double which proved to be the go-ahead hit, and allowed just two runs over six-plus innings. The 'pen didn't allow a run after that as the Nats held on.
