Phillies 7, Nationals 5
Ryan Howard connects for a two-run homer, his second blast of the series, on Saturday. (AP)
A wacky, wild, rain-shortened nightcap featuring Raul Ibanez's second three-run blast of the day, a towering tater by Ryan Howard and Andrew Carpenter's rough 2009 debut helped propel the Phils to a sweep of their day-night doubleheader. Helping make the day twice as nice was Jayson Werth's three-hit performance.
