Everyone can take a rest which is well earned, and a job well done as the Nats swept the Phillies after being swept by them in DC in May. The Nats now have 5 sweeps on this young season, and have moved 12 games over .500 in the standings at exactly the 1/3rd point completed in the season.
The Nats won this game 7-2 and improved to 33-21 on the season. Max Scherzer earned his 6th win and dropped his ERA to 3.87 while recording 11 strikeouts.
Wilson Ramos again with the game-winning RBIs, and the Buffalo had 4 RBIs tonight racking up a 3 run HR, an RBI single and another single to go 3-4 and raise his BA to .338 and his OPS to .919. Ramos is now batting .400 in RISP spots as he added 2 more RISP hits, and is 18-45. Please vote for Wilson Ramos as an All-Star.
Look at the situational hitting of Ramos letting the pitch get deep and inside-outing it successfully as the hit goes oppo in an 0-2 count to move the runner on 2nd with no outs and gets the bonus as the ball drops in for an RBI single.
Every starting position player got at least 1 hit tonight, and the Phillies really robbed the Nats of 4 hits tonight as they had several Web Gems.
