Darin Ruf homered for his first major league hit, Carlos Ruiz and Domonic Brown also went deep and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the playoff-bound Washington Nationals 6-3 Tuesday night. Cole Hamels (16-6) overcame five shaky innings to set a career high in wins and help the five-time defending NL East champion Phillies keep their faint postseason hopes alive. Hamels allowed three runs and seven hits, tying his shortest outing of the year. Philadelphia entered 5 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the NL's second wild-card spot.

Michael Morse hit a grand slam, Bryce Harper also homered and the Washington Nationals became the latest team to tag a struggling Johan Santana in their 6-4 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night. Ross Detwiler tossed six solid innings and the Nationals sent Santana to his fifth loss in the last five starts. Handed a 2-0 lead, the two-time Cy Young Award winner was perfect through three innings. But the NL East leaders strung together four consecutive hits in the fourth, capped by Morse's 12th homer.

Jimmy Rollins hit two solo home runs, Nate Schierholtz connected in his Philadelphia debut, and the Phillies received a sharp pitching performance from Vance Worley in a 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night. After hitting the first pitch of the game to the warning track, Rollins homered in the third inning and again in the fifth. Both drives went into the seats in right field, unlike his inside-the-park homer on Tuesday night. Rollins and Schierholtz homered on successive pitches in the fifth against Edwin Jackson (6-7)

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss called Michael Cuddyer "one of the better kept secrets in the game. " That perception might change soon. Cuddyer homered in his first at-bat to extend the major league's longest hitting streak this season to 21 games - and the Rockies hung on to beat the Washington Nationals 7-6 Sunday. Cuddyer went 3 for 4 with four RBIs to break a tie with St. Louis Cardinals third baseman David Freese for the year's top streak, and the Rockies right fielder is now just two games shy of matching the franchise's best run. Dante Bichette, now the team's hitting coach, had hits in 23 consecutive games in 1995.

Second baseman Jeff Baker’s incredibly wayward throw gave the Washington Nationals a pair of runs in the first inning Tuesday night, and Ross Detwiler won his season debut in a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Baker was only 30 feet or so from second when he fielded a routine grounder with the bases loaded and none out, but his throw sailed more than 10 feet wide of the bag and into left field. Instead of allowing one run on a double play, the Cubs were in a 2-0 hole that became 3-0 on Wilson Ramos’ infield single.

Rookie Bryce Harper hit a game-winning single with two outs in the 12th inning to give the Washington Nationals a 7-6 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night. Scott Hairston hit a solo homer in the top of the 12th to give New York a 6-5 lead. But the Nationals rallied when Michael Morse led off with his second double of the game, and Ian Desmond followed with another double for his third RBI. Reliever Elvin Ramirez (0-1) walked two batters to load the bases, and a fielder's choice by Xavier Nady left the bases loaded with two outs for Harper, who lined an 0-2 pitch to left field.

Nearly three months ago, Jayson Werth broke his left wrist trying to make a catch in a game the Washington Nationals lost. It was a memorable game. Cole Hamels hit rookie Bryce Harper with a pitch and Harper stole home. At the time, the Nationals were 18-10 and led the NL East by a half-game. Without Werth, Washington went 43-32 and increased its lead by two games. Werth returned to the lineup Thursday night and joined in the fun. He had a single and an RBI groundout in the Nationals' 3-0 win over Hamels and the Phillies.

And the Washington Nationals wait. Already assured of the capital's first postseason baseball since 1933, the Nationals remained stalled in their drive for the NL East title when they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 10-4 Sunday. “We've got to play the type of baseball that we're capable of playing,” infielder Ian Desmond said. “We didn't do that today.” Carlos Beltran homered from both sides of the plate to lead the Cardinals. Washington (96-63) saw its magic number for clinching the division remain at one with three games remaining.

A.J. Burnett doesn't lead the major leagues in strikeouts. He just wants to and is awful close. “I'm trying to keep up with Yu Darvish, but he's pretty filthy,” the Pittsburgh Pirates' ace said of the Texas Rangers' right-hander. Burnett allowed one run and struck out nine in seven shutout innings, and call-up Jordy Mercer hit a tiebreaking home run to lead the Pirates to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Friday night. Burnett (3-2) gave up five hits and one walk in winning his third straight game after going 0-2 in his first three starts.

The first winning season in franchise history didn't thrill Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson when he was reminded of it. "I guess," Johnson said and paused. "I wasn't real concerned about it. " The Nationals, who moved to Washington for the 2005 season, had never won more than 81 games. After their 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday, they have their 82nd victory, a 6?-game lead over Atlanta in the NL East and the best record in the majors. "We haven't really done anything yet and we're looking for bigger things," Ryan Zimmerman said.
